A very easy to love kind of cake, the whole family enjoyed it so much :)

Recipe is from Small Small Baker, the texture is great, not too moist but not too dry, either
The recipe calls for taller two layered cake, I baked just half recipe with chocolate frosting on top

What you need:
(below is half recipe)
 
90g butter
190g caster sugar
2 eggs (60g each)
110g self-raising flour
40g plain flour
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
35g cocoa powder
2 tsp dry instant coffee
60ml water
65ml milk
 
Chocolate frosting:
60g dark chocolate
60g unsalted butter
 
Method:
  1. Grease 20cm round cake pans, line bases with paper; grease paper
  2. Beat butter and sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy; add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after additions
  3. Transfer mixture to large bowl, fold in sifted flours, soda and cocoa with combined coffee, colouring, water and milk, in 2 batches
  4. Pour mixture into prepared pans; bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 45 minutes. Turn cakes onto wire rack to cool
Chocolate frosting:
  1. Combine chocolate and butter in heatproof bowl over pan of simmering water, stir until smooth. Remove from heat. Cool at room temperature until spreadable, stir occasionally while cooling
  2. Pour frosting over the cooled cake and spread evenly


Happy Birthday to my mum, I wish you only the best in everything, cos you deserve it
Love you! XOXO
