Coffee Pound Cake

Winter and coffee both are related with each other! This was the concept I had during my growing years. In West Bengal you will find the tea lovers through out the year. Tea is the popular hot drink there, may be because of the climate. And when the winter comes people over there (Bengal) switch to coffee from tea. However, when I came down to Southern part of India I noticed people prefer coffee over tea. I love black tea (any variant masala, lemon etc) in the morning and coffee in the evening through out the year irrespective of any season.

Coffee Pound Cake
Winter means lots of cakes and cookies too. So I thought I should prepare a coffee flavoured cake. As soon as my thought process worked I started the preparation and you can prepare a coffee pound cake with very few ingredients available in your pantry. Do you love the aroma of coffee? Then you will definitely love the mild aroma and taste of coffee in this pound cake. While preparing this cake avoid adding more coffee powder (than the mentioned quantity) which might give a bitter taste to the cake. The colour and texture of the coffee cake is superb.

So all the tea lovers and coffee lovers now you can have coffee and tea together. Does it sound weird? I meant to say you can have coffee cake and enjoy your evening tea time. Now learn here how to prepare a simple coffee pound cake...

Coffee Pound Cake
Ingredients

All purpose flour - 21/2 cup
Butter (unsalted) - 1/2 cup
Refined oil - 2/3 cup
Egg - 2 nos
Sugar - 1 cup
Baking Powder - 2 teaspoon
Salt - 1/8 teaspoon
Instant Coffee Powder - 21/2 teaspoon
Water - 1/2 cup


Procedure

1. Boil water and add it into instant coffee powder (11/2 teaspoon) to make decoction. Stir well and allow it to cool.
2. Preheat the oven at 160 degree C for 10 minutes.
3. Line a loaf tin with a butter paper and keep aside.
4. Sift flour, salt, baking powder and 1 teaspoon coffee powder altogether and keep aside.
5. Take butter and oil in a bowl and add sugar into it.
6. Cream the mixture until the sugar dissolves.
7. Now add one egg at a time and beat well. You may add few drops of vanilla essence however I avoided it.
8. After that fold the dry flour mixture with the wet mixture along with the addition of coffee decoction.
9. Do not add too much of coffee decoction so that the batter loses it consistency and become watery.
10. Now add the batter in the loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes (160 degree C) or until the tooth pick comes out clean.
11. Allow it to cool and later slice it and serve.
