I know. I know I am not "Ms. Know It All", I also know, honestly, truly and sincerely, its a disaster with these pictures, especially the one on top and the one at the bottom. I couldn't help it. Learning and taking pictures simultaneously isn't my forte. I fumbled while making this Chocolate Butter Cake during my baking course (creme caramel, strawberry shortcake, lemon tea loaf), hopefully, you do understand. Please do. Nevertheless, chef's recipe I vouch will not fail you. And chef shared one important cue on what makes a delicious chocolate cake - "cocoa powder should be the priority, so, pay a little more for a better quality brand".
185gm soft flour (all purpose flour)
75 g cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp instant coffee (dilute with a bit of water)
2 egg yolks
200 gm milk
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy - about 8 to 10 mins.
Add eggs one at a time and then coffee emulsion.
Sift flour, cocoa and soda, now, alternate these dry ingredients and milk when adding to the creamed mixture. Tip mixture into a greased baking pan, anddddd bake lah!!
Bake at 190C for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool removing from the baking pan.
