Not a cake lover — at all — but this is really delicious served with a scoop of ice-cream (which I also don’t like!). This recipe produces a dense texture, rather than being a light and airy cake.
Preheat oven to 350F and grease an 8” springform pan.
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ cup hot strong coffee (or use water or orange juice)
- 1/3 cup low fat yogurt or buttermilk
In a large bowl, beat together brown and granulated sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla until well blended. Add cocoa and mix until well incorporated
Combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder; add to bowl along with coffee and yogurt. Mix just until combined, being careful not to overmix. Pour into pan, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until tester inserted into centre comes out dry. Let cool completely.
