Method of Preparation Of Bar One Cake Recipe
- Preheat your oven to 180 C.
- Prepare two 8 inch baking tins by greasing their bottoms and lining them with baking paper.
- Cream the sugar, eggs, and oil together until the whole mixture is light and fluffy. You can use powdered sugar to make this process easier.
- Dissolve the cocoa in water.
- Add the chocolate to the cocoa and water mixture.
- Now whisk all the dry ingredients together. Make sure they are well combined.
- Sift this mixture into the wet ingredients.
- Now add the chocolate and coffee mixture to it, stirring until it is just combined.
- Bake for around 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
- Melt all the ingredients that are required for the topping in a microwave at 20-second intervals.
- Once the cake has cooled completely, you can invert them onto dishes and stack them one over the other.
- Now pour the topping over the cake and allow it to drip down the sides, and cover the cake completely.
Tips For A Moist And Flavourful Cake
- Make sure that all the ingredients are measured out carefully. A slight variation may alter the texture of the cake.
- Use only softened butter not to have to wait too long to cream the butter and sugar together. You can keep all the ingredients out a night before you plan to make the recipe so that all the ingredients are at the same temperature.
- Keep the eggs out so that they are not added chilled as this tends to lead to a stiff cake.
- Sift the dry ingredients and add them in parts so that they do not clump together.
- Once you add the dry ingredients, make sure only to mix till all the ingredients are combined. Overmixing at this stage is the most common mistake bakers make.
- Ensure an even temperature in the oven. An oven thermometer could ensure this for you.
- 30 minutes is only a guideline, and the cake might take anywhere from 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the containers and the temperature that the oven can maintain.
- Leave the cakes to cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Once the pans are only warm to the touch, you may invert the cakes onto a cooling wire rack so that they cool completely.
