one 8" cake or medium bundt cake

A richly-flavoured chocolate-coffee cake with a luxurious white chocolate ganache, dusted lightly with cocoa powder. The combination of chocolate, coffee and cocoa take this cake to a whole new level! The perfect cake to have with your evening cup of coffee or tea, works perfectly as a dessert too!

Ingredients for Cake
1 1/2 cups
self-rising flour
(180gm) (after measuring this out, remove 2 tbsp. of flour and put it back in the flour bag. Replace it with 2 tbsp. of cocoa powder to bring it back to the original measurement)
1 tsp.
vanilla essence
1 tbsp.
instant coffee powder dissolved in 1 tbsp. hot water
large eggs
(use 3 if you have small eggs)
1/2 cup
3/4 cup
1/2 cup
Ingredients for White Chocolate Frosting
white chocolate, broken into pieces
butter, softened
3 tbsp.
icing sugar

Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature for best results

Grind the sugar to a powder and set aside.

Sift the flour with the cocoa twice and set aside.

Grease and line an 8" round pan or grease a medium bunt cake pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 170 C.

Beat the butter with the sugar until light and creamy. Then add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Now add a third of the flour and beat until combined, then add half the milk. Again beat the batter until milk is mixed in. Add another third of the flour, mix it in, and then add the remaining milk. Finally add the last of the flour, coffee and the vanilla essence. Beat just until everything is well combined.

Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.

Remove from pan and let it cool completely before frosting.

For an extra intense coffee flavor, once the cake has cooled, poke holes into it with a toothpick, then mix another 1 tsp. of instant coffee with 1 tbsp. hot water or hot milk, and using a brush, drizzle this coffee into the cake

For White Chocolate Frosting

Place chocolate, butter and milk in a bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water and stir until chocolate has melted. Remove the bowl and sift the icing sugar into it, beat until smooth and creamy. Then quickly spread over the cake and dust the top with cocoa powder. Let it set before cutting.

W/Salaam, simply grease it very very well and then dust it with flour. No need to line it.

Self-rising flour already has baking powder in it.

I am a fresher in baking..I wanted to know how long do we preheat the oven..I made this cake today..everything was fine, but my cake sunk in the center..

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Takes about 15-20 minutes to preheat the oven to around 170-180 C. Normally there is a setting for this on the oven. As for the cake sinking, this could have happened if you opened the oven door too often or before the cake was more than half-way done.

aoa,we can use plain flour ?f we dont have .

Hi, do you measure all the ingredients accurately? Also do you use cold butter or cold eggs or milk? And do you preheat the oven before baking?

W/Salaam and thank you for your lovely message! I would go with the almond cake, it's a soft airy and delicious recipe, and ideal for a first attempt. You can bake it in a heart shaped pan, that is fine. Make sure the batter goes to about three-quarters of the way up in the pan. :)
