INSTRUCTIONS

CHOCOLATE CAKE

NOTES


COCOA POWDER:


I exploit a mixture of 1/2 cup Dutch processed and 1/4 cup common unsweetened cocoa powder for a richer cake.
COFFEE:
For a richer chocolate flavour, DISSOLVE 2 teaspoons instantaneous espresso or espresso within the boiling water earlier than including into the batter. You possibly can’t style the espresso!


SUGAR:


White granulated sugar is used right here. You may as well use superfine or caster sugar.
SPRINGFORM PAN (PLEASE NOTE)
Springform pans are NOT 100% leakproof. Very skinny cake batters resembling this one will leak via the bottom. To fight this problem, line the bottom with parchment paper arising the place the edges meets the bottom to create a ‘cowl’. Place a baking sheet on the shelf beneath the cake pan (or the underside of the oven) to catch any stray drips (do not put cake pans straight on the pan).
