Eggless Choco Coffee Cake Recipe

I made this cake in Feb for our wedding anniversary but didnt post it as I reserved the post for Rajis birthday tomorrow :) as she loves coffee cake too. I kept up this surprise as I tend to spill the beans everytime I talk to her ;). Yes I cant keep secrets with friends even when surprises are called for...but finally did it for her :)

Happy Birthday dear Raji!!

Raji never fails to amaze me everytime she posts a recipe. She is my best critic when it comes to food photography which has made me improve so much. My guru when it comes to DSLR doubts, we both have the same brand so discuss even the technical specifications of the camera.

So here is a virtual treat for your birthday , hope you enjoy it and have a great day tomorrow!
Eggless Choco Coffee Cake Recipe

Eggless Choco Coffee Cake - Ingredients:
  • All Purpose flour - 2 cups (270 gms)
  • Baking powder - 1 and 1/4 tsp
  • Granulated Sugar - 1 cup (220 gms)
  • Butter - 1 tbsp
  • Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
  • Condensed milk - 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Milk - 1.5 cups (375 ml)
  • Coco powder - 1 tbsp
  • Instant Coffee powder - 2 tbsp (I used Nescafe sunrise)

Eggless Choco Coffee Cake Recipe
Method:
  1. Sieve maida, baking powder , cocoa and coffee powder twice for even mixing and keep aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add milk, vanilla essence, butter, sugar, condensed milk and mix well until sugar completely dissolves. Now add the sieved maida mixture little by little and mix well until a creamy batter without lumps is formed.
  3. Preheat oven at 180 deg C for 10mins. Grease the baking tin with butter and maida, tap the excess flour, pour the batter in the tin such that the batter is more than 1/2 or close to 3/4th of the tin and bake it for 35-40mins.
  4. Insert a fork in the middle of the cake to check if the cake is done. If it comes out clean then your cake is ready.
  5. Allow it to cool for 10mins then invert the tin, the cake will demould itself perfectly.

My Notes:
  • You can add 3tbsp of coffee powder and omit coco powder completely.
  • It is a teatime snack cake so it is mildy sweet. You can increase the sugar to 1.5 cups if you want the cake to taste like the regular cakes.
  • You can also add chocolate sauce as topping or have the cake as such.
  • The coffee and chocolate(coco) flavour compliments each other so well.
  • Choose a tin such that the batter is more than 1/2 or close to 3/4th of the tin.

Coffee flavour is everyones favourite at home except amma but she too enjoyed the cake as it had the chocolate flavour in it. If you like ur cake to be mildly sweet with the soft texture then this is for u. And must say, it is for all choco coffee lovers!

  42. hi
    can i bake the cake in microwave? If yes then plz do forward the timings and other required details. Want to try this out ASAP

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Anonymous : Yes you can bake it in microwave with convection mode, timings will remain the same I guess...Give a try and check the last 10mins then switch off.

    ReplyDelete
  44. hi sharmilee ,
    thnks for yourr suggestion but i have basic microwave without convection mode.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have a microwave convection oven...Can I bake the same in this oven. Pl reply. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Sachu : Yes you can bake the same cake in your microwave too....

    ReplyDelete
  47. is the cake suppose to be gluiii???? cuz mine is. like it is not cooked....

    ReplyDelete
  48. @Anon : U mean goey? The cake is soft but not goey...

    ReplyDelete
  49. here you have mentioned 2 cups which is 250 + 250 =500 grams right
    then how come it is 300 grams?
    shall i go for quantity given in grams or should i follow 1 cup and half cup

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Priyanka, The ml cannot be converted as such into grams so 2 cups cannot be taken as 500 gms.Also each ing weighs differently So what I suggest is if you have a kitchen scale go ahead with grams else proceed with cup measures. Hope this helps!

  51. At what temperature do I bake this cake?

    ReplyDelete
  52. HI Sharmi :) I am a beginner in cooking and tried most of ur recipes though this is my first comment...Sorry abt that :P :) Even today i made tawa pulao with home made pav masla :) The recipe is all yours...It came out so good :)i love ur presentation so much :) I just have a doubt...How do we substitute instant coffee with brewed coffee...I actually have a pack of ground coffee...can i use it directly or should i brew it and use ?and the quantity? Can u please help..I am not sure about getting instant coffee powder here in US as am new to this place

    ReplyDelete
  53. @Alisa : Bake it as the same preheating temperature mentioned above...

    @GG : Good to hear that...May be you can use 2-3 tbsp of coffee decotion...Hope this clears!

    ReplyDelete

  56. Is it an OTG oven?.you should either have convection mode or an OTG to bake cakes

    ReplyDelete
  57. sharmiji, mine is an otg and jus mixed all the ingredients exactly as u shared in ur blog and put in the otg, but the mixture seemed little liquidy, is it ok?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The batter is runny only more like out dosa batter.....guess ur mixture proportion must be right only...go ahead baking

  58. Thanks for another amazing recipe Sharmilee. I had sent you the photo a few months back, but had forgotten to write my comment here on your blog. This is such an easy recipe and choco/coffee lovers will devour this cake till the last bite. Thanks once again!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hello..I tried this same recipe but in a convection microwave..By20 min there was smoke all over the place..Was disappointed with my effort... What should I keep the temp in a convection?? Does it require pre-heating?? Thanks in advance

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Usually the settings I keep in OTG will be the same for microwave convection mode also except for +/- 5-10mins in baking time..All ovens require preheating time...I have mentioned it too.Please check ur oven manual for the prehaating time and mode and to know your oven in detail.

  60. Dear Sharmi,
    I have tried many of the bakes of yours, and loved all, please help me understanding why the baked cake cracks from top many a times, the taste and texture is good, but it bursts.

    1. I have had mot of cakes crack in the middle, not really sure why it happens as far as the cake inside is cooked you need not worry about it....If you are making it for birthday , then scrap of the cracke part to make it even then apply the icing

  61. Hi Sharmilee

    I'm planning to bake this cake today. Had a few queries...
    1. If I dont use the condensed milk will it affect the texture of the cake? If yes what can i use as a substitute?
    2. If I want use curd will the recipe change?

    Awaiting an early reply.
    Thanks
    Medha
