Mocha Mud Cake


Ooooo.....we are just 2 days away from Christmas! Can you believe it? I am so excited like everyone of you even though I'm not celebrating it. haha..... I know most of you are still rushing around for some last minute X'mas gifts or baking like crazy for the coming giveaways. And most of all, not to miss out the X'mas decorations! Well, still you need to slow down and take a deep breathe for a couple of minutes.....or you may  take a few minutes to enjoy a slice or two of your own sweet bakes. I am actually extremely busy doing my year end housekeeping for the past few days. It was hard especially during this kind of season. It has been raining for one whole week already on and off. The weather is turning chill. So, I ended up ironing all the half dry clothing which has been hanging around for the past 2 days.And yet more laundry need to be done too! Yes, I definitely need a.......break.

Guess, you know what I had ! ha.....

Ingredients :
(A)
250gm butter
150gm dark chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp instant coffee powder
1 cup milk
1-1/2 cups sugar

(B)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tspn baking powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Method :
(1) melt ingredients (A) without boiling.
(2) transfer the melted mixture to a big bowl and leave to cool for 15 mins.
(3) then stir in ingredients (B) and mix well.
(4) pour batter to a 8" tray lined with parchment paper.
(5) bake at preheated oven 170'C for one hour & 30 mins.

Without hestitation, this round I placed the baking tray on the lower deck and slot in another tray over the top deck to minimize the direct heating from the top. Or you may cover the top with an aluminium foil and remove it later on.
 
Honestly, I at least need an hour of break to enjoy my sweet baked with a cup of white coffee. Don't be mistaken ! White Coffee isn't mean the coffee is white in colour but just the name for one of our local coffee. The coffee actually tastes quite similar to cappuccino. Our local coffee has slightly different flavour compare to the western one. Maybe because of the way how they process the beans. However, do have fun and enjoy this festive season with laughter. And be blessed !

Here's an early greeting to all my readers :
HAVE A BERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!

Kristy, yes take a break, you sure deserve it. I would love to be sitting across the table from you sipping white coffee and enjoying every bite of this lovely mocha cakes. I did a lot of baking so far on my Christmas break so far. I just posted a family recipe that I finally made myself.

Our weather has been perfect for the last few weeks and is supposed to continue. Very dry though,(for us) just at around 80 degrees F.

Wishing you the best of the holiday season and merry Christmas even though you don't celebrate it. :)

It sounds like you've definitely been busy and deserve a break. You should take a break and enjoy a slice of your cake. It looks and sounds delicious. We've had unusually warm weather here (high 30's) and have escaped the snow and all so far. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Now this is what I would like for dinner on New Year's Eve. Who needs proper food? I should never come here when I'm hungry - because I yearn. Happy Holidays, Kristy! Wishing you all good things in 2012.

Your cake looks delicious.
And I hope you had a very, very Merry Christmas :)

Tina said...

This cake look amazing! The thing that I am wondering about is the depth-it looks like it is at least three inches, not like most of the flat cakes you see coming out of 8 inch cake pans. I love the texture as well as the color-yum!
Enjoy the holidays!

Chaya said...

Thanks for your lovely words on my blog. Wishing you and yours happy holidays. Get some rest, have some fun and enjoy.

Blogs are wonderful but a while away from them just brings a freshness to them.

Now, I want to make this cake.

Hi Everyone

I know I've been naughty for not replying any of your comments lately. But that doesn't mean I have forgotten you all. Actually, I have a new task to handle up lately and hopefully I will have more time for you guys.

However, thank you very much for all your support and spending your valueable time here with me all the time. Most most most........ appreciate it.

I'll try my best to work it out and catching up with you all as often as possible. ((hugs))

Tina : The cake sure looks tall right! Probably, it's the close up picture makes it look taller & nicer. HAHAHA....

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY READERS!

Best wishes
Kristy
