Chocolate Mocha Cake



Chocolate Mocha Cake

 Mocha cake as the name suggests is a dense moist coffee flavored chocolate cake. I adore coffee flavor and the combined flavor will not disappoint you. The frosting is butter cream flavored with cocoa and coffee.This is a delicious cake. I made it a one layer cake,but you can make into a two layer cake as well. Try this,you will surely love it.

Recipe adapted from Ellie Krieger,original recipe here 


Ingredients
Cake flour- 2 cup
Cocoa- 1/2 cup
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Egg-3
Butter-1 stick
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Salt- 1/4 tsp
Espresso coffee powder-2 tbs
Vanilla essence-  1 1/2 tsp
Low fat yogurt- 1 cup

Frosting
Powdered Sugar-  3 cup
Melted chocolate- 2 ounce
espresso coffee- 2 tbs
Butter-1/2 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp



Preheat oven to 350 degree F and grease and prepare cake tin.
Mix espresso in 5 Tbs of  hot water and keep aside. Melt butter and allow to slightly cool.
Whisk together, flour, cocoa,baking soda, salt and baking powder and keep aside
Beat egg and sugar till the egg become double in volume. Mix in butter, low fat yogurt,3 tbs of espresso diluted and vanilla essence. Mix together and fold in the dry ingredients using gentle strokes with a spatula. Pour into greased baking pan and bake for 20 - 25 minutes or till the tooth pick stuck to the center comes out clean. Remove from the pan and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Run knife around the edges and invert cake to a cooling rack. Allow to cool down completely before frosting.

To make the frosting, beat butter for a few minutes with a mixer on medium speed. Add 1/2 of the powdered sugar and turn your mixer on the lowest speed until the sugar has been incorporated with the butter. Add the next half and again gently mix.Increase mixer speed to medium and add vanilla extract, espresso and melted chocolate. Beat for 3 minutes.  If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add 1 tsp of milk. Spread evenly on the cake. Refrigerate the cake for about an hour before serving.
