Mystery Mocha


Not your best option if you're looking for pretty, but OH so tasty. I found this over at The Pioneerwoman Cooks, one of my always-favorite food blogs. We made this for a simple afternoon coffee-and-cake session, and it was very nice.

It will look really weird during the cooking. Don't worry. That's as it should be.

Mystery Mocha

175 g sugar
150 g all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
30 g dark chocolate
25 g unsalted butter
125 ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

100 g brown sugar
100 g sugar
4 msk cocoa powder
250 ml cold, strong coffee


Mix sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Melt the butter and chocolate, and add to the dry ingredients. Add milk and vanilla, and stir. Pour into a greased oven-proof dish, about 20*25 cm.

Mix the topping - brown sugar, sugar and cocoa powder. Sprinkle on top of the cake batter. Pour over the coffee. (This is when it will look really weird.)

Bake at 175°C for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven, let it cool slightly, but serve it while it's still a bit warm. It's great with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
