Chocolate Butter Cake


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 caramelstrawberry shortcakelemon 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". 


Ingredients
200g butter
260gm sugar
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)
3 eggs
2 egg yolks
200 gm milk


Method
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.

Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!

  4. No, its normal though for the cake to crack, you either will icing the cake or cut it into smaller pieces, so the crack will not be of a issue.
