Rich Moist Chocolate Cake

prep time; 20 minutes    cook time: 35-45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 125 grams dark cooking chocolate (choc compound)
  • 60 grams butter
  • 1 cup Natvia (or another brand you can find in the sugar section of the supermarket)
  • 2 table spoons instant coffee
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 100ml canola oil
  • 50 grams dark chocolate chips

Icing

  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup natvia
  • 2 teaspoonss butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon skim milk

Method

  1. Place butter, water, chocolate, (non) sugar, coffee in a small pot over a medium heat. Mix all the ingredients together until all is combined and the sugar and chocolate is melted.
  2. Sift the flour into a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir till combined, then add the eggs.
  3. Whisk the mixture whilst adding the oil. NOTE; the mixture and oil should not be separated from one another.
  4. Pour the mixture into a 19cm round cake tin and bake at 175 degree celcius for a minimum of 35 minutes. NOTE; each oven is different, so timing may vary depending on your oven.

Tips:

  • Wet ingredients should always be cooled first before being added to the dry ones.
  • All cakes need resting time. When baking, always bake the cake minimum one day prior to eating it. The combination of egg and flour need time to air-rate for it to become more moist and dense.

Icing

  1. Grind the Natvia sugar or ensure the sweetener you bought is superfine
  2. Put the sweetener into a bowl and sift he cocoa over it
  3. Add the softened butter and milk and mix till combined.
  4. Whisk or beat the icing for 1 minute for it to become fluffy

Tips:

  • The Icing can be used to pipe designs on top of the cake with a piping bag if beaten with an electric mixer.

This easy and simple recipe, is easy make and can be used in conjunction with cupcakes. It should yield approximately 20 cupcakes.
