Dark Chocolate Coffee Cake

My favorite Cake baking adventure time is back again ! This time I am baking a Dark Chocolate-Coffee cake. Friends are an integral part of our lives. A cake is incomplete without icing. So is the life without friends. This one is for my special friends Rupa and Aditya and their adorable daughter Smera who joined us for a wonderful evening at our place.

This cake is dark, moist, rich and incredibly decadent. The Nescafe instant coffee I used blended amazingly well with Hershey’s cocoa to create the most intense and delicious chocolate cake anyone could hardly resist.

I love to read gingeritup articles because it’s everything which you can relate to. The recipes so presentable and delicious yet so easy and simple ingredients and the lil intros which Mani writes to describe the recipe makes you connect with it. The other articles on gingeritup I find very honest and sincere . Rendezvous series is an inspiring unique initiative which she has started which I haven’t seen anywhere else . Overall, I admire Mani for she is so talented and a multitasker.
