I love cake. this is quick cake that only dirties one bowl. I added some coconut and chocolate chips to make it special.
3/4 c plus 2 TBSP whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c nonfat buttermilk
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 TBSP coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c hot strong black coffee
1/2 c coconut
1/2 c chocolate chips
Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray.
Whisk flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, brown sugar, egg, oil and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add hot coffee and beat to blend. (The batter will be quite thin.) stir in chocolate chips and coconut.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the cake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from the pan.
Dust the top with confectioners’ sugar before slicing.
