Chocolate Coffee Sponge Cake with Chocolate Ganache

Just something simple for the children.

Well, I had to make a cake for the cake stall in the Election Booth for Luke's school.
But after the cake was made, the children, especially the 3 year old Monique got upset....  Where's the cake mum.

So I made another one, just a simple chocolate sponge with ganache, a bit of coffee flavour.

Chocolate Coffee Sponge Cake with Chocolate Ganache
100g SR flour
50g butter
150g Raw Sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp espresso coffee powder dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water

Chocolate Ganache
200g Fresh thickened Cream
50g butter
100g sugar
150 Lindt’s Dark Chocolate Orange

Beat the eggs on highest speed for 7-8 minutes, add sugar gradually and beat for a further 5-6 minutes
Add sifted flour, and keep beating.
Add Cocoa Powder, and espresso. And mix well to form smooth batter
Fold in melted butter, use 22cm round bake tin, bake in 190C for 35 minutes.

To make simple chocolate ganache
Boil cream and butter, melt chocolate and mix in sugar, make sure it’s smooth.

It's a bit more moist than ordinary sponge.


  1. Oh yum...! That looks super chocolately, I need a slice now...;)!

  2. Wow! where did you get that lovely bowl? Looks great!
