Cocoa & Coffee Cake
A chocolate cake with coffee to brighten any afternoon and impress your guests! This cake is delicious on its own or served with whipped cream, jams, or crème anglaise, alongside coffee or tea.
You can replace the whole milk with a vegetable one and the coffee for more milk. We used three small baking pans here, but you can use a large one if you prefer.
If you want to freeze it, just let it cool down and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. Enjoy!
Preheat the oven to 150 °C
Cut 3 parchment paper discs to fit a round 16 cm baking pan
Grease the pans with oil and place the paper discs on the bottom
