Chocolate cake - Day 11

Okay.. I've been wanting to make this cake for a long time. It looked so yummy, moist and delicious at Foodlyrics that I had to try it!

Bookmarked it long ago.. but got the opportunity to bake it recently - for my husband's Bday. It turned out so well. We topped it off with vanilla ice cream and it was divine.

Maida - 1 3/4cup
Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 2 tsp
Baking powder -1 tsp
Cocoa  powder - 3/4 cup
Eggs - 2
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Buttermilk - 1 cup
Vegetable oil - 1/2 cup
Freshly brewed coffee decoction - 3/4 cup

(The original recipe said mixing instant coffee powder in boiling water.Check here. Since I din't have instant powder I brewed it fresh)


  • Pre-heat the oven at 350 F
  • In a large bowl sift maida, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt together twice and keep aside
  • In another bowl beat the eggs,buttermilk, coffee, oil, sugar and vanilla essence until the sugar melts. I did this with hand mixer on low
  • Add flour mixture to this and beat
  • Transfer this to the pan and bake for 35-40 min
  • Cool the cake completely before removing from pan
Linking this to Mharo Rajasthan's Bookmarked recipes. Again.. this was bookmarked from Foodlyrics
