- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup of coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp of salt
- 1 cup of butter (slightly melted)
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 2/3 cup of brown sugar
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 1 ½ tsps vanilla paste
- 7 oz (200g) of Milk chocolate (barely melted)
- ¼ cup of milk
- ¼ cup of boiling water
Top of cake
- 2 tsps of cocoa powder
- 3 ½ tsps of white sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C) and Butter a loaf pan and line with parchment paper.
(DONT FORGET THIS STEP: You have to line the pan with parchment if you want to get this cake out).
2. Combine the all-purpose flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. In a mug, combine the milk and water and set it aside
4. In a large bowl, beat the butter and both sugars till creamy.
5. Then add the eggs, and vanilla, and whisk till fully incorporated. The batter will be a bit fluffy.
6. At this point, fold in the chocolate (which was melted and now cooled) stirring until just barely combined.
7. Then, gradually add in the flour mixture, and the hot water and milk mixture, alternating until all the flour and liquid has been incorporated. The batter will not be too thick, don’t worry.
8. Pour the cake batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the chocolate sugar mix on top of the cake (you will have excess, sprinkle to uust cover the top of the cake)
(Just to be careful place the loaf pan on a cookie tray incase the batter overflows– which it will. Next time ill probably divide the batter into 2 loaf trays)
7. Bake for 30 min at 375 F (190 C) then turn the oven heat down to 325 F (165 C) and continue to bake the loaf for an additional 20 min, then at 300 F (148 C) for another 15-20 min. Do not test with a toothpick it will not come out clean as the center of the cake is meant to be gooey. If you follow the times and temperatures the cake should come out fine.
(my sprinkled top was an epic fail, it all dribbled down the sides of the loaf pan– what a pity. Oh well, a little sneak taste before serving it.)
8. Let the cake cool before removing it from the tray. (do this we care as the cake is very fragile)
