This week, instead of an article of interest, we decided to tempt you with a delicious recipe. This one is excellent to have handy for those surprise Festive Season visitors! And say goodbye to the days of tossing out half a pot of coffee. This recipe will make you wonder why you didn’t start baking with coffee sooner!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 package dark chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 100g milk chocolate, chopped
  • 60g dark chocolate, chopped
METHOD:
  • In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  • Pour into a well-greased fluted 25cm pan. Bake at 180°C for 50 – 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • On top of a double boiler, melt butter and chocolate. Stir occasionally until mixture is glossy and smooth. Drizzle over cake.
TEST KITCHEN TIPS:
  • The coffee brings out the delicious chocolate flavor. So even if you’re not a coffee fan, don’t be tempted to skip it.
  • If you like a thicker frosting instead of a chocolate glaze, reduce the amount of butter by half.
  • Alternatively, serve with Cream or Ice Cream
