Guest Post by Sutapa: Chocolate Coffee Cake

The best part of blogging is getting to know lots of fellow bloggers and most importantly how they love to share even the secret recipe that their family have been keeping as a secret for many years. The fun part is when they even do a guest post if requested that shows the love they have for other bloggers and their blog. Hailing from different walk of life and countries is something everyone should acknowledge off, now I got to know Sutapa from Tips for Delicious and Healthy Cooking sometime ago while we visit each others blog. She always comes up with unique and healthy dishes she have tried, I love her collections. Now without wasting anymore time let me pass it over to her.

I feel honored to be part of Arthy’s delicious blog. She is not only a great foodie but a dear friend. I am so very happy when she asked me to do a guest post for New Year. My wish for her and all her blog readers for New year is -

Happiness keeps you sweet
Success keeps you glowing and

God keeps you going.
May you have a greatest 2013 ! 
Welcome New Year with my delicious Chocolate coffee Cake.

Winter means season for cakes, cookies and hot cup of coffee. In this chocolate coffee cake I try to combine two most hot favorite flavors of the season. I am sure you all will like this yummy cake.


2 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
3/4  cup butter milk
3 eggs
1 /2 cup prunes ( or any dry fruits of your choice)
1 1/8 cup dark cooking chocolates chopped
375 g unsalted butter chopped
1 cup castor sugar
1 freshly brewed strong coffee
 Melted butter for greasing
Preheat oven 160 degree C. Brush your cake pan with the melted butter to grease. Line the base of the with a parchment paper for baking.

Mix the dry ingredients together well. Lightly beat 3 eggs. Add eggs to dry ingredients. Add butter milk to the dry ingredients. Mix well. With the help of a hand beater mix the batter well in such a way so that no lumps are formed. Set the batter aside. 

Now in a medium sauce pan take butter, dark chocolate, castor sugar and coffee. Heat on a medium temperature, let the butter and chocolate melt and well combined. Now add this mixture slowly to the previous batter. Mix well with the beater so that it is well mixed and no lumps are formed.  

When well combined then add prunes or whatever dry fruits you want to use. Mix well. Now pour the mixture in the cake pan and bake in a preheated oven for a hour or until a skewer inserted came out clean. Let it stand for 10 to 15 minutes before turning into wire rack to cool. You can top it with any glaze but I want to keep the calorie count low so just top it with generous amount of grated chocolate and cherry. 

                                             Relish delicious Chocolate Coffee Cake.
