Cappuccino cocoa cake

Cappuccino Cocoa Cake recipe from my mother modified by me.

Before posting this recipe actually I’m a bit confused what is the correct title.

Cappuccino cocoa cake? Cocoa cappuccino cake ? Chocolate cake? Dark cake? Well..whatever.

The original recipe from my mother was actually spotted banana cake.

But since I don’t like to follow recipe just like that, also I a bit funny with the ‘spotted’ thing on food, and because Big Bear like cappuccino as well, then I added instant powdered cappuccino into the batter.

Ingredients: makes one loaf

  • 1 large ripe banana, peeled, mashed
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 170 g butter, soften
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (I use 1 sachet vanilla sugar)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp powdered cappuccino

Method :

  1. Preheat oven at 180 C. Layer the loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, cappuccino powder, salt in a bowl.(dry ingredients)
  3. In mixing bowl put butter and sugar, using electric mixer, mix until pale.
  4. Add egg one at time.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mashed banana and mix until smooth.
  6. Use spatula/spoon, scrap the bottom and sides of the bowl. Please don’t overmixed.
  7. Put into the prepared loaf pan.
  8. Bake at 180 C for about 40 minutes, check with toothpick. Bake for 10 more minutes. Depends of your oven.
  9. Remove from the oven.
