Nescafe Chocolate Cake (Eggless)

It is one thing to be crowned as a sensational baker, the other is baking simple cakes (Chocolate Lava Microwave Cake) for the family whenever time permits. Between both, I am in the second category, yet certainly I have picked up some vital tips why cakes (Banana Bread) crack neither dance softly and demurely (Lemon Squares, Banana Bread and Baked Grapefruit Cheesecake). Well, a couple of reasons - overheated oven, baking on high temperature which may be reason for outside cooked and inside raw cake, over folding the mixture/batter and opening/closing the oven every now and then. Most importantly, please rememberm patience is virtue, time is essence, skills build over time and go easy with the baking-raising agents. This cake - the caffeine addition for Nescafe lovers. 

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp Nescafe (optional - add more for a stronger coffee flavour)
1 cup yoghurt/curd (I used the no frilly basic yoghurt)
3/4 cup powdered/icing sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup no smell/olive oil

Sift flour, cocoa and Nescafe twice.
Keep aside. 
Whisk and combine yoghurt, sugar and vanilla. 
Add baking soda and baking powder, whisk and "don't disturb me" for 2 minutes.
Pour in oil as well as fold the sifted ingredients.
Gently please while ensuring there's no lumps. 
Tip into a greased baking pan.
Bake at 175C for about an hour or until cake is cooked.
Remove, cool down and "cut-me-up".
