Posted on


Contrary to it name it is one of the most heavenly cakes I have tasted.The crumb is tender, the filling and frosting luscious. It is dark, rich and yet not so sweet. And it is butter free so you enjoy it with a guilt free spirit : )

I bookmarked this recipe recently when I saw on Sangeeta’s Spicy Treat blog. It is the perfect cake to prepare for this occasion of my in-laws 50th marriage anniversary.!!.


  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup powder sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup freshly brewed coffee
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup oil(I used sunflower oil)


Preheat panggangan 180 C

Grease the baking pan, I used a 9 inch square pan.

Sieve the flour,cocoa powder, salt, baking soda 3 times together.Beat the eggs and sugar well with a beater approximately for 10 min or till it becomes fluffy. Add vanilla essence,butter milk, and beat for another minute.Now gently fold it with sifted flour and mix softly so that air does not escape. Now shift this batter to the baking pan.

Bake the cake for 30-35 minutes in 180 C, check with a toothpick till its done. Once done let it sit for 5 min then remove the cake from the pan to a cooling rack to cool completely. In the meantime we will prepare the chocolate glaze.

For Chocolate Glaze:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the glaze combine the butter,chocolate,milk and vanilla extract in the top of the double boiler or in a heatproof bowl set over hot water,until melted.

Place a piece of greaseproof paper under the cake, then pour spoonfuls of glaze along the edge to drip down and coat the sides.

Place the remaining glaze on the top of the cake.
