I loved the texture of this cake, not too moist not too dry perfect as a snack by itself or dipped with chocolate glaze, it tastes soo good.
I got this mini bundt mould from Popad Jammal and this is my first silicon full cake mould.

All purpose flour(Maida) – 1 cup

Powdered sugar- 3/4 cup
Instant coffee powder – 1 tsp
Vanilla Essence – 1/4 tsp(optional)

- Add coco powder and baking soda.
- Add instant coffee powder and whisk it well.Then add powdered sugar and mix well using a whisk.
- Melt butter, cool down then add it to buttermilk, then slowly add the dry ingredients in batches.Keep whisking.
- Whisk well so that there are no lumps.The batter will be very runny and will be in piurable consistency.Brush your baking tin / mould.I used my mini bundt silicon mould.Preheat oven at 180 deg C for 10mins.
- Pour till half of the stick in the middle.Place the mould on wirerack and bake for 12-15 mins.Cool down then demould.
Cool don then pour chocolate glaze and add sprinklers, enjoy!
- It is just powdered not icing sugar. I just powdered normal sugar in mixie.
- Pour glaze only after the cake cools down.
- I love adding vanilla essence to all my chocolate cakes so added it, but its purely optional.
- The orginal recipe calls for 1/2 cup powdered sugar but I felt sweet less so have mentioned a little more.
- The cake tastes good even without the glaze but adding it takes it to new level 🙂
- You can even bake this cake in a cake mold / loaf pan in that case it may take more time to bake may be 30-35mins.
- Make sure to add melted butter only after it is cooled completely.And also whisk it well once added to buttermilk.
- Using slightly thick buttermilk gives great texture.
- My bundt mould is small so I got 10 mini bundt cakes.
