20g cocoa powder

1. Cream butter + sugar till light and fluffy
2. Beat egg and add in diluted coffee powder
3. Add egg mixture into butter mixture
4. Fold in sifted flour and cocoa powder
5. Pour into about 7 cups and bake at 180deg C for 20 min.
6. Sprinkle some icing sugar, or add buttercream and add a piece of the cake cut on top.

Time taken: <45min

The little cakes look so good and tempting!!!

I like the combination of choc and coffee, when I make choc cake I also add a little bit of coffee (I use Nescafe Gold) to enhance the taste.

HHB: Yes pls do.. but i dont really taste the coffee flavour a lot. you might want to increase the coffee content and reduce the cocoa.. and see how it goes :)
