I woke up today with a longing for a coffee flavored cake. Numerous attempts at Google-ing did not yield any satisfactory result and I was on the verge of giving up when I came across this recipe. Voila! My taste buds were going to get exactly what they wanted. Hurrah!
The best part of the recipe was that it was given for one cup of flour. Usually recipes are for bigger cakes. The flour quantity required is 2 or 3 cups. That works out to be too large for my husband and me and more importantly it does not let me bake as frequently as I want. Usually I am using all my arithmetic knowledge to divide the rest of the ingredients with regard to one cup flour and that is one of the reasons my cakes or breads don’t turn out exactly the way it should. There are few errors and they are few notches short of perfection.
So the one cup of flour in the ingredients was all it took for me to rush into the kitchen and pull put my mixing bowl. This recipe is easy and very tasty.
I did not make too many changes to it except that I added half a tsp of cinnamon. I am not putting down the recipe here since it is exactly the one I used with the addition of cinnamon. Plus that blogpost has a more elaborate recipe with pictures and I am sure that would be easier to follow. So here is the picture of my yummy cinnamon coffee cake! The husband could not wait till I clicked a picture…so it’s only half the cake. I know it has sunk…that was because I left it on for a longer time when I was preheating my oven. Silly mistake! But that has no impact on the taste 🙂
1. The cinnamon I added (which was not part of the original recipe) worked well with the coffee flavor
2. It took 45-50 minutes for my cake to be done
3. I did not have 60 gms of butter available. So I used 52 gms of butter and 10 gms of sunflower oil.
