Dark Chocolate Yogurt Cake
Because I liked this healthier version of yogurt cake so I decided to play with the recipe. So, I created this chocolate yogurt cake. Mine turned out to be black in color like a black cake, hahaha.... Reason being I was using the Special Dark cocoa powder and thus created this specially dark cake. :)
The texture of this cake looked different than my Pandan yogurt cake. It looked spongy but in reality it was soft and moist and packed with chocolate flavor. My daughters loved it and asked me to make it again.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup white sugar
1 cup plain yogurt
3 large eggs, lightly whisk
1 Tbsp. strong brew coffee
1/2 cup canola oil
1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Grease a 8.5x3.5 loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, sift in flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Add in salt, sugar. Stir to mix well.
3. Then, add in all the wet ingredients: yogurt, eggs, coffee and oil. Use a whisk and whisk everything together until blended.
4. Pour into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before taking it out to cool completely on wire rack.
