A very easy and tasty coffee cake recipe for you to enjoy!
Serve with vanilla or caramel/toffee custard.
one and a half cups plain flour
one and a half teaspoons baking powder
half a cup of sugar
a pinch of salt
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
half a cup black coffee
Start by making the coffee because it needs to cool down a bit before adding it to the batter. I made an espresso with my Bialetti espresso maker, topped up with a bit of warm water to make half a cup. In the same cup, add the 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the coffee mixture and mix well so that the powder is dissolved in the coffee mixture. Let it cool.
In a mixing bowl mix the butter and the sugar with a hand blender. Then add the eggs, flour, baking powder, salt and coffee mixture. Blend everything together with a spoon. Mix properly but try not to over-mix.
Spoon the batter with a spatula into a cake pan. Bake for 25 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.
Serve warm with vanilla, caramel or toffee custard.
