Chocolate Mocha Cake

Merry Christmas to You all friends..We had a great christmas party here and we went to bed when its almost 5am, just danced and went to chruch of midnite mess..Had a great time, after a beautiful christmas brunch i wanted to make some cake and went for making this chocolate mocha cake as a low fat version just by using buttermilk and oil instead of butter and with a freshly brewed coffee..i love the coffee flavour in anything especially in ice creams, so needless to say that this mocha cake was one of my fav, i wanted to make some mocha icing but coz of laziness i skipped that part and just used some icing sugar and tiny cute choco balls for decorations, as its was quite simple and beautiful at the same time..

CHocolate Mocha cake

2cups All purpose flour
1cup Sugar
200grms Chocolate bar
1cup Freshly brewed hot coffee
3nos Eggs
1cup Buttermilk
1tsp Baking powder
1cup Oil
Icing sugar (for decoration)
Tiny choco balls

Preheat the oven to 350F..Beat the eggs and sugar together until they turns pale...meanwhile mix the all purpose flour, sugar,baking powder and keep aside..Add the buttermilk, oil to the egg-sugar mixture, beat well.

Add the chocolate chunks to the freshly brewed hot coffee, mix until the chocolate get well mixed..gradually add the chocolate-coffee mixture again to the egg-sugar mixture,whisk everything..Finally add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix gently with a spatula well.

Pour this cake batter to a greased round cake mould,bake for 25-30minutes in middle rack until a skewer inserts comes out clean..
