  • 25 mins


  • 1 1 whole egg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 170 ml full fat yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1&1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup whole flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup double cream
  • 250 grams dark or milk chocolate

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Line your cake tin with foil, spray with non stick cooking spray and set aside
In your mixing bowl (make sure its big enough), combine the egg, sugar, yoghurt, oil, vanilla and whisk until smooth
Add coffee and cocoa powder and whisk vigorously until combined and lump free (when using the coffee please ensure it has completely cooled down because if too hot when added to the mixture it will scramble the egg)
Next add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and whisk until combined
Pour the now fairly runny batter into your cake tin, and place in the oven for approximately 25 mins. I used a toothpick after 25 mins to check if it is done – the toothpick should come out clean after inserted in the middle of the cake
Once done, allow the cake completely before adding the ganache (about 30 – 40 mins)
For the ganache –
Place your chocolate pieces in a big enough bowl – as we still need to add the cream
Heat the cream in the microwave for about 1 min or until it starts to boil
Pour heated cream over the chocolate pieces and whisk quite vigorously until the mixture is smooth and velvety
Allow the ganache to cool and once ready pour over the now cooled cake
Allow the ganache to set on top of the cake for about 30 mins or place the cake in the fridge or freezer briefly.
