Best coffee cake recipe. Very delicious dessert baked in an oven.
The most popular cake is the sponge, lavishly filled or topped with flavoured, sweetened, whipped cream.
The cake may be spread with passion fruit pulp, jam, or lemon honey (lemon cheese) before filling with the cream, or the cream may be decorated with fresh fruit, especially strawberries or sliced Chinese gooseberries.

Best Coffee Cake Recipe
- 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 Large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 ¼ cup (300 ml) vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup (250 ml) hot strong black coffee
- For Icing: 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons buttermilk
Preheat your oven to 350 F (175 C).
Lightly oil a 12-cup pan or coat it with nonstick cooking spray. Dust the pan with flour, shaking out the excess.
In large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, white sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add buttermilk, brown sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 min. Whisk in hot coffee until completely incorporated. (The batter will be quite thin).
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 min., until a cake tester inserted in centre, comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 10 min.; remove from the pan and let cool completely.
TO MAKE ICING: In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners sugar, vanilla and enough of the buttermilk or milk to make a thick but pourable icing. Set the cake on a serving plate and drizzle the icing over the top.
