Chocolate Cake ( Kek Coklat )
- 290g flour
- 150g cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1tbsp baking powder
- 1tbsp baking soda
- 675g sugar
- 5 large eggs
- 1tbsp vanilla extract
- 230ml milk
- 2tbsp lemon juice
- 170g butter
- 250ml strong coffee
How to make:
- Sift together all the dry ingredients;flour,cocoa powder,baking powder,baking soda,salt.
- Stir in sugar. Sukatan gula ni quite banyak, so if you guys rasa tanak manis sgt,you can always lessen the amount.
- Combine eggs and vanilla essence in a different bowl. You guys kena make sure that the eggs are at room temperature. Kalau bawak kluar straight from fridge let it warm up to suhu bilik dulu baru guna.
- Mix in the eggs into the dry ingredients.
- In another bowl, add milk and lemon juice. Actually, this is to substitute buttermilk. Since buttermilk ni susah juga nk carik,you guys can always use this substitution.Let the milk sit for awhile, sampai susu tu jadi pekat sedikit.
- Melt the butter.
- Add in milk(buttermilk tadi),melted butter and coffee ( coffee ni boleh guna Nescafe yang dah dicampur dgn air ) to the dry ingredients.
- This batter will bake you two 9-inch(23cm) cakes. So kalau nak buat satu je,then separuhkan all the ingredients diatas.
- Bake in pre-heated oven (180degrees) for about 50mins or so. You guys kena make sure that you guys preheat the oven dulu. This is very important in order to make sure cake korang bakar naik dengan elok, and doesn’t sink in the middle.
- Transfer pans to a wire cooling rack. Make sure that you guys let the cake cool off completely before doing any decorations on the cake.
