Coffee flavoured cake happened by chance. I had some unused Nescafe instant coffee and wanted to finish it ASAP. So, I thought of baking a cake. It is made up of healthy flour and a very good option as a snack.
While getting ready to assemble everything, I thought of adding chocolate chip and walnut as an attraction to kids and it worked out very well with finger millet or Ragi flour as well. Now we will see how I proceeded with the ingredients.
Whole wheat Flour – 1 cup
Ragi/ Finger millet flour – 1 cup
Baking soda – ½ tea spoon
Baking powder – ½ tea spoon
Salt – ¼ tea spoon
Walnuts – ½ cup
Choco chip – ½ cup
Butter – 100 grams
Eggs – 2
Sugar – 1 ½ cup
Hot milk – 1 cup
Instant Coffee powder – 1 to 1 ½ table spoon
Hot water – ¼ cup (you can take little less than ¼ cup)
-Pre heat oven at 180°C, line a baking tray with the butter paper.
-Take one bowl and mix all the dry ingredients like, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, walnuts and Choco -chips.
-In another bowl, beat melted butter, eggs, sugar, milk by adding one by one respectively.
-Make dark coffee by mixing powder and water. Mix in the liquid and beat.
-Now wet mix is also ready.
-Pour this wet mixture to dry ingredients and fold the batter by using any spatula.
-Pour the batter in lined baking tray and keep this for baking until done.
-It takes anywhere between 40 to 50 minutes.
-Before removing, check with a knife by inserting, in the baked cake.
-Knife should come out clean.
-Remove the cake, cool before cutting, and serve.
Note: For the Eggless Version, use 1/2 cup of flax gel and you can refer my earlier post for the preparation.
