This Coffee Cake is a delicious and simple bake that doesn’t require a great deal of skill to pull off. The end result is an incredibly moist, tender cake that bursts with coffee flavor! Ideal for serving alongside coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, this coffee cake can easily please a large crowd with minimal effort.

Here’s how you make it:

First, preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Create a separate small bowl by combining the milk and coffee.

Using an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar at medium speed for three minutes until it’s fluffy. Every now and then, be sure to scrap along the bottom and sides of the bowl. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract, and beat until the mixture is blended.

Slowly add the flour mixture into the bowl in three installments. Follow this step with two alternating installments of the milk with coffee mixture. Finally, when all ingredients have been mixed in, be careful not to overmix the batter.

Take the resulting batter and scrape it into the greased loaf pan before smoothing it out. Expertly pop it into the oven and let it bake for 45-60 minutes. If the outside is browning too quickly, simply cover it with aluminum foil.

Now all that’s left is to allow the cake to cool completely before serving. Enjoy this cake with a cup of coffee or tea, let it sit overnight to let the coffee flavor deepen, and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days. If you have leftovers, the cake can be frozen for up to two months.
