Coffee Chocolate Cake Recipe

Hello everybody and Happy Sunday !

As you may have noticed by the title I'm going to share a cake recipe with you today.
This cake is seriously so easy to make and it is so delicious !
If you have a sweet tooth, like me, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

What you need:

- 170g softened butter
- 375g white sugar
- 3 eggs
- vanilla aroma
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
- 60ml water
- 125ml buttermilk
- 130g all-purpose flour
- 50g unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt

Firstly you want to preheat your oven to 165°C (325°F) so it can warm up whilst you're preparing the batter.
The next step is really important if you don't want your cake to fall apart because it's stuck to the pan; you need to grease and flour your baking pan !

Next, you need to mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
You will need this mixture later so you can set it aside for a while.

Now, mix the butter and the sugar in a large bowl until it is light and fluffy.
It is beneficial to have an electric whisk since it would be really hard to mix the butter with the sugar by hand.

Beat in the eggs (one at a time) and add a tiny bit of vanilla aroma to your butter-sugar mixture.

Dissolve the coffee granules in hot water so it is ready to use.

Then, add the flour mixture, the buttermilk and the coffee to the butter mixture and mix it together until there are no lumps left.

Now you can pour your batter into the pan which you can now put in the oven for 60 to 70 minutes.
If you stick a toothpick into your cake and it comes out clean; your cake is ready !
Take it out of the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 20 minutes.
Turn the cake out of the pan and let it cool completely.

If your cake is cool you can decorate it however you want :)

Et voilà, your cake is ready !

Bon Appetit!
