Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 c hot coffee – 2 x heaped tsps. instant coffee or a shot of regular coffee plus 250ml boiling water)
  • 250g milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Method:

Preheat oven to 170 d for fan forced oven, or 180 d. Place your oven rack in the middle to lower half of the oven. Grease and line with baking paper 2 x 20cm (9 inch) round cake pans. Using butter to grease your pans gives a much better result with cakes. Set aside. If making cupcakes, use cupcake liners (do not grease)

Make up 1 cup of hot coffee by placing 2 heaped teaspoons or a shot of espresso in a measuring jug and adding 1 x 250ml measuring cup of boiling water. Set aside.

Add all dry ingredients to tmx bowl:

  • 280g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda (bicarb)
  • 105g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 400g white sugar

Turbo 5 times to sift.

Add all wet ingredients to the bowl:

  • 210g Vegetable Oil
  • 220g hot coffee (250ml or 1 c)
  • 250g milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix for 1 Minutes, Speed 4. Scrape down. Mix for a further minute Speed 4. Scrape down. Mix for 2 minutes Speed 6. Batter is quite thin.

Divide between two cake pans. Cook for 50-55 minutes. (35 minutes for cup cakes) Check using skewer method after 50 minutes, and each 5 minutes until skewer comes out clean (ensure you wipe skewer clean between checks) * Note, every oven is different. Get to know your oven. Check your cakes often and get a feel for how hot your oven runs. This is a slow cooked cake but too long and your cake sides and top will be too crunchy.

Leave cakes to cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Place a wire cooking rack over the cake pan and gently turn over so the cake releases. leave on wire racks to cool completely before icing. I recommend either a ganache icing for this cake or a mock cream icing.

Here are the cupcakes I made today. Iced with my mock cream bakery icing, tinted pearl pink and decorated with fondant hearts and beads.
