180 grams of butter
180 grams of sugar
210 grams of flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon of chemical yeast
1 pinch of salt
210 ml macchiato coffee *
1 teaspoon vanilla (essence or extract)
* The macchiato is cut coffee, composed of approximately 175 ml of coffee and 35 ml of milk or cream. If you do not want it to taste so strong, you can put in more milk and less coffee.
-For the glaze:
75 grams of glacé sugar
2 tablespoons coffee
-To decorate (optional):
Pour one third of the flour and beat until the half of the coffee is added, alternating another third of flour, the other half of the coffee and the last third of flour.
Grease the mold by brushing the edges well, with butter or mold release spray (do not use margarine or oil). When the dough is homogeneous, pour the dough on one side, so that it is distributed in the mold alone. Beat the mold 3 or 4 times on the countertop, supported on a rag, to let out any air bubbles that may be in the dough. Bake for 40 minutes or until, when pricked with a toothpick, it comes out completely clean or with small strokes. Remove the mold from the oven, let stand on a rack for 10 minutes and carefully demold. Cool completely on a rack.
To prepare the icing, put the glacé sugar in a bowl and add the two tablespoons of coffee. Mix with a spoon until homogenized. If it is very thick, it incorporates, little by little, droplets of coffee, until it acquires the desired consistency. Pour the icing onto the cake placed on a rack (place a tray or baking sheet underneath to collect falling drops) and let it dry before serving.Decorate with chocolate chips and coffee beans.
→ You can prepare the best coffee at home or use coffee macchiato ready to drink . With a 250 ml bottle, you will have enough for the cake and frosting.
→ Do not you want me to know too much about coffee? Change the proportions of coffee and milk (or cream). The important thing is that, between both liquids, they add 210 ml.
→ If you are going to take children , I recommend that you use decaffeinated coffee or latte macchiato (milk stained with a little coffee).
→ What advantages or disadvantages do bundt cake molds have? The main advantage is that the heat passes through the central fireplace and the dough is baked in less time and in a more homogeneous way, avoiding dry edges and raw centers. In addition to getting biscuits very beautiful visually by the edges. The only disadvantage is that you do not use nonstick molds or you do not grease them very well, the cake will stick and it will be impossible to unmold it without breaking it.
