Here is the recipe which I rewritten for my own ease of reference. You can check the original recipe by Ijan here.
(Makes thin 8" round)
1 cup Flour*
1/2 tsp BPowder*
1 tsp BSoda*
6 tbsp Cocoa Powder*
3/4 cup Caster Sugar* (* Mixed)
1/2 cup Oil
1 tsp Coffee + 1/4 cup Hot Water
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Yoghurt
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1. Preheat oven at 170C.
2. Mix all ingredients marked*.
Add in the rest ingredients one by one by order.
Use hand whisk to mix until well combined.
3. Bake for 30 min.
Cool & cover with frosting.
(Below is the original frosting recipe from Ijan but I did not use it. Mine is simply a mixture of condensed milk & milo).
3 tbsp Marg/Butter
1 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
3-4 tbsp Milk
a. In a medium size bowl add the margarine, powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Start beating with an electric mixer on low speed. At this stage it may seem to be very dry. Don’t panic. Wait until you add the milk.
b. Add milk little by little and continue beating the mixture till you get a nice spreadable consistency.
Now transfer the cake to a plate and start frosting it.
c. Cool down in fridge for at least one hour (the texture of the frosting will look better after at least one hour in fridge).
