Chocolate - Coffee Cake





I believe that every special occasion needs it's special celebrating cake. A few days ago I had so much fun taking part in my oldest friend's baby shower party and as you could probably tell - the cake was on me. Everyone was craving some chocolate so the decision was obvious. Whether you have a special day coming up or you just simply want to pamper yourself after hard work, this cake will not disappoint you. It's very chocolatey and has a touch of coffee flavour which is the reason why we had it for the breakfast as well (in the end we all looked pregnant). Added vegetable oil gives this cake a wonderful texture you just cannot get enough of. I followed the recipe for the cake but made my own icing. However you could do your spin on it and decorate cake with fruits or some whipped cream.

750 ml
500 g granulated sugar
150 g cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 g salt
500 ml cooled brewed coffee
250 ml vegetable oil 
10 g vanilla 
45 ml cider vinegar





Preheat your oven to 180 C. Line round cake tin with baking paper and set aside. Get two bowls for wet and dry ingredients. Sift flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and pinch of salt into a bowl and mix well. Then prepare 500 ml of brewed coffee and add vanilla extract. Whisk it together while slowly pouring vegetable oil in. If you want to cut calories down, you could substitute oil for buttermilk, yoghurt or sour cream. Add cider vinegar and you are almost done! 

Now mix dry and wet ingredients together until well combined. It should make a thick mixture. 

Put your cake tin in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean
