Coffee Choco Chip Cake

Posted on

Sometimes my love for coffee and chocolate gets into a war, and it becomes impossible for me to take sides.

So call it peace between the two, I decided to make a fusion cake this weekend. Result was a harmonious Coffee Choco Chip Cake. Here is the recipe of peace.

Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup fresh cream
  2. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  3. 2 tbs diluted coffee (see notes to know why diluted)
  4. 1 tsp chocolate essence
  5. a pinch cinnamon (See notes to know why cinnamon)
  6. 1 cup all purpose flour
  7. 1 tsp baking powder
  8. 1 pinch baking soda
  9. 1 pinch salt
  10. 2 tbs kahlua and bailey’s cream
  11. handful of chocolate chips (dark, milk or white)

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven on 200° C
  2. Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl, sugar, fresh cream, eggs, essence, coffee. Add a pinch of cinnamon to the same. Beat the mixture till it is a little fluffy. Since its a tea cake, we are not trying to make it soft and fluffy.
  3. Sieve the dry ingredients together, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Add the mixture in the wet ingredients in small portions.
  4. Mix the batter till all the lumps are gone
  5. Add choco chips to the mixture, and slowly mix it to the batter
  6. Grease the baking tin and dust it with flour
  7. Add alcohol to the mixture and mix it well, and pour the mixture in the baking tin
  8. Put the batter for baking in the over, on 180° C, for 30-40 min or till well baked.

Take the cake out of oven, cut into small pieces and enjoy it till it’s still hot 🙂

Note:  The reason why I have added diluted coffee is because I feel that diluted coffee gives more flavor of coffee than adding coffee in powdered form. A pinch of Cinnamon gives the dish an earthier flavor and enhances the richness of coffee. This of course is just my opinion.
