Thanks to Ellie and her Vintage Victuals blog I was inspired and curious to reproduce her recipe. I was curious about the ingredients "cup of water" and the "½ tsp" of cinnamon mixed in a cocoa cake. I never had cocoa cake with cinnamon before, it is delicious. As I said I am not a dessert making guy and wanted to surprise Maria (the expert) and thank Ellie for this beautiful idea.
Well, I messed up. Instead of pouring the chocolate (cocoa) mixture to the whisked flour, sugar and salt and then add the buttermilk and baking soda as per the recipe, I did just the opposite. Added the
buttermilk and baking soda to the whisked flour, sugar and salt and then I added the cocoa mixture. The rest of the batter and cake were made according to Ellie's instructions.
Result: After 25 minutes in the preheated to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven, the cake came out with a narrow ring of wobbly matter around the center of the cooked cake as per picture.
Well who knows maybe I discovered by mistake another way of making "Lava Cake"...
Anyway here is Ellie's recipe which I am very eager to share with y'all.
You will need:
- ½ cup butter.
- 1 cup water.
- ½ cup vegetable oil.
- 5 Tbsp. cocoa powder.
- 2 cups flour.
- 2 cups caster sugar.
- ½ tsp. salt.
- ½ cup buttermilk.
- 1 tsp. baking soda.
- 2 eggs lightly beaten.
- ½ tsp. cinnamon.
- 1 tsp. vanila.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.
- Grease a large bundt pan with cooking spray or light vegetable oil.
- Combine water, butter, oil, and cocoa and bring to a boil. Turn off heat.
- Meanwhile whisk flour, sugar and salt together in a large bowl.
- Pour cooled cocoa mixture into the dry ingredients above.
- Add buttermilk and baking soda and mix well.
- In a small bowl combine beaten eggs with the cinnamon and the vanilla.
