Welcome to Little Chef’s Apron! Today we’ll make something out of a really simple ingredients. Something that most of us love with all our heart. It’s a very easy recipes yet incredibly delicious. When you bake it , the aroma of this cake would make you realise what a great decision it was to make this cake!
3 tsp coffee powder
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp powdered sugar( optional)
70 ml/ 1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup salted butter
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder
. First whisk together the condensed milk, butter, essence and sugar if you are adding for 2-3 minutes until it’s well combined.
. Then , add in the coffee dissolved in a tbsp of water into this and mix it properly.
. Then sieve together the dry ingredients and give it a good mix.
. Preheat he oven at 180*C for 10 minutes and grease the pan with oil and dust some flour on it.
Add the rest of the water ( should be lukewarm) slowly watching the consistency. It should not be a very thick or thin batter. It should have a flowy consistency.
. Now, add this to the pan and tap it for excess air bubbles that may shrink the cake while baking.
. Bake the cake at 180*C for 30-35 minutes.
Note.: Don’t use cold ingredients. Make sure that the condensed milk and the butter are at room temperature.
Note: if you overmix the batter than it’s incorporated, then your cake would become dense and not spongy.
Note: Don’t keep opening the oven to check your cake as the heat would then escape and just about when the cake is about to rise it would shrink. Use a six inch tin for this recipe.
3 tbsp water
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp coffee powder
. Mix all these ingredients together and make sure that the water is hot.
. Let the cake cool down for 1/2 and hour inside the mould only. De mould it after and make holes with a toothpick just like this.
. With the help of a spatula with which we grease the tins soak the cake with the syrup.
. Cut it into pieces and serve without any icing as a tea time cake.
