Chocolate Cake  How many of you have ran out of ingredients while preparing for a cake for the weekend?

Well, I have. I was prepping up for a class for Sorelle’s Wedding Floral Cakes and found out I am about to run out of this special cocoa powder enough for six (6) two tier cakes.

What makes this cocoa powder so special?  It is alkalised.  This created a more robust, deep chocolatey flavor.  I never went back to any natural cocoa powder after using it.

I was lucky enough I found a bag of dark chocolate couveture so I made the necessary substitutions to compensate for my lack of cocoa powder.

Here is the recipe for y’all to enjoy:

MOU IKKAI’s ACCIDENTAL CHOCOLATE CAKE

Ingredients

[A] 240g Boiling hot water, combined with
1t Coffee powder
50g Dark Chocolate Couveture, 55%
50g Alkalised cocoa powder (Dezaan)

[B] 210g All Purpose Flour
2t Baking Soda
1t Baking Powder
2t Fine salt

[C] 300g Fine sugar
2 pc Eggs (min 50g/ea)
100g Oil
2t Vanilla Extract

[D] 240g Milk

Instructions:
-Combine A. Add D. Set aside until cool to touch
– Combine C. Beat using a wire whisk until batter is pale complexion with lighter consistency. Set aside
– Sift B.
– Put in 1/3 of B with 1/3 of A into the C mixture. Mix well. Repeat until everything is incorporated in the batter
– Equally divide batter into 7″ pans x 3.
– Bake at 150C for 30-45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

P.S. Mixing cocoa powder into boiling water intensifies the chocolate flavor of the powder.

For frosting, I use fresh cream beaten cold and cover the cake.

Enjoy!

Xoxo,

Monica
