So, I made a cake!! Let that sink in for a minute....okay?
Good..so I made a cake, a nice, coffee and chocolate flavored cake..
granted, when I started making the cake I did not have the outcome in mind, you see, I was trying to make a red velvet cake but somehow, along the way, I messed a few things up...and well..let's just say I ended up with a brown cake! lol
Here is what I used
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon pure distilled vinegar
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1 cup coffee
1 cup of buttermilk (maziwa lala)
A couple of drops of red food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
here is what I ended up with
after all, we are about taste here and not looks, am I right?
So, go easy with the cocoa and do not brew your coffee too strong as it will ruin the color.
pretty much, sift the dry ingredients separately and everything else in a separate bowl then mix the dry ingredients in in batches.
preheat your oven to 200 (celsius) or 375 farenheit and bake for 30-40 minutes. If a toothpick comes out clean, you are good to go.
see you soon.
