This chocolate cake is perfect! It’s definitely very chocolate-y but not too sweet, and literally takes just a few minutes to make. It’s quite moist too- must be because of the added coffee. So good!
What you need:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup cold, strong, brewed coffee
What you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8 inch cake pan (I used a bundt pan lightly coated with cooking spray).
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a separate medium bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Add flour mixture, alternating with coffee. Now beat just until incorporated.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into centre of cake comes out clean.
Suggestions for frosting: chocolate or coffee icing. I like it sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar.
