INGREDIENTS FOR COFFEE CAKE WITH COFFEE CHOCOLATE GANACHE

This section explains what all ingredients is used in making the eggless coffee cake, how to use or choose certain ingredients and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.

FLOUR – Whole wheat flour (atta) is used for more healthier version instead of all purpose flour (maida). The cake turned out moist and soft. You can’t find the taste of atta in this cake.

MILK POWDER – To enhance the taste and texture.

LEAVENING AGENTS – Both baking powder and baking soda is used in this recipe to give a perfect amount of lift to the cake. Also the reaction of baking soda and vinegar allows the cake a perfect rise and turn out a soft, spongy and moist cake.

MILK – The recipe uses whole milk. Recommend to use whole milk for extra richness and taste.

SUGAR – The recipe uses cane sugar making the cake a healthier version. It adds a beautiful colour and flavor to the cake.

COFFEE POWDER – Instant coffee powder is in the recipe.

ESSENCE – Vanilla essence is used here. It adds a nice vanilla flavor to this cake.

COFFEE CAKE WITH COFFEE CHOCOLATE GANACHE VIDEO TUTORIAL

Here’s a step by step pictorial instructions to make coffee cake without oven:

Preheat The Pan:

Place the pan over the gas top. Place a stand or a separator for the cake pan on the bottom so that the cake pan does not directly touch the bottom of the pan.

Preheat the pan on medium flame for 10 minutes.

(If you are using pressure cooker remove the gasket and whistle from the cooker cover).

Preheat the pan

Prepare The Cake Tin:

I have used 6 inches baking tin. Grease the tin with oil or butter. Line with parchment paper at the bottom. Or simply dust it with flour.

Prepared cake pan

Prepare The Cake Batter:

In a mixing bowl add in the milk, cane sugar, instant coffee, oil and vanilla essence.

Mix well to combine together. Whisk it for about a minute using a wired hand whisk.

Wet ingredients

Place a sieve over the mixing  bowl. Add in the flour, milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sift them together.

Gently fold to make a lumps free batter. Add in the vinegar and give a quick mix.

Pour the batter onto the prepared cake pan. Tap the cake pan to release any air bubbles trapped inside.

Cake batter

Bake The Cake:

Carefully place the cake pan onto the preheated pan. Cover it and bake on a low-medium flame but not simmer for 40 minutes. Start checking from 40 minutes onwards. A tooth pick inserted should come out clean.

Turn off the heat. Carefully take out the cake pan and allow to stand for 5-10 minutes.

Demould the cake and allow to cool down completely.

Baking the cake

Frosting:

In a small bowl add in the instant coffee and water. Mix well and allow coffee to dissolve completely.

Frosting the cake

NOTES:
● For the flour, you may substitute whole wheat flour with the same amount of all purpose flour or 50-50 % of both.
● For the oil, I’ve used sunflower oil. You can use any flavorless or neutral tasting oil instead of sunflower oil.
● You may swap the oil with 100 gms butter.
● You may swap the cane sugar with  brown sugar or jaggery or simply use regular sugar.
● You can also add 2-3 tablespoon cocoa powder to make a chocolate coffee sponge.
● To make the cake wih egg, you may use 2 small eggs or 1 large egg. Skip the vinegar and baking soda if using egg.
● All ingredients should be at room temperature.
● Sieve the flour or dry ingredients, this helps in getting a nice texture to the cake.
● If you want to bake in an oven, preheat the oven to 180° C for 10 minutes. Bake at the same temperature with both rods  for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
● Each oven reacts differently so baking time may differ since the temperature varries from oven to oven.

HOW TO BAKE THIS COFFEE CAKE IN OVEN OR MICROWAVE CONVECTION?

You can easily bake this coffee cake in an oven. Preheat the oven to 180° C for 10 minutes. Bake the cake at preheated oven at 180° C for 30-35 minutes with both the rods on. A toothpick inserted should come out clean.

HOW TO PUT COFFEE IN A CAKE?

The simplest way to incorporate coffee flavor in cakes and desserts is to use instant coffee just as we have done in this recipe.

WHAT CAN I USE INSTEAD OF INSTANT COFFEE?

You may use a finely ground espresso. Make sure it is very fine ground, so that the grains don’t create a crunchy grainy texture in the cake OR you can also used brewed coffee or filter coffee. Make strong freshly brewed coffee but be carefull on the liquid quantity.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO STORE MY COFFEE CAKE?

This coffee cake can be stored in an airtight container for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Before serving allow it to come up to room temperature and then serve. 

This cake can be freezed either just the coffee sponge or along with the ganache topping. To freeze the coffee sponge cake, wait for it to cool and then wrap the cake in clingfilm or store it in an airtight container before freezing. Defrost it thoroughly before decorating.

The coffee cake with ganache topping cake can also be freezed in the same way. First simply refrigerate the cake for 1-2 hours so that the ganache is set and firm up. Then wrap it in cling film. As the ganache is already firmed and solid, it won’t get smashed. When you want to defrost the cake, remove it from the freezer and remove the clingfilm so it doesn’t stick to the ganache  as it thaws.
