Baked this pound cake for a friend who is relocating to Hyderabad.
It’s pound cake with egg.. infused richly with chopped 5stars, nutella dollops and coffee powder.
Baked 2 loaves so just doubled the recipe. As you can see that there is a parting by dates in one of the mould. With nuts is for me and without is for my son☺️. Although he likes them but not with cake.
Have a look into the recipe now which yields 10 slices from a loaf of 10″*4″.
100 gms salted butter at room temperature
1 cup soft brown cinnamon infused Demerara sugar.. If not getting the same, you can add 3/4 tsp of cinnamon powder with flour.
3 large eggs at room temperature
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp milk at room temperature
1 cup + 2 tbsp APF or refined flour
3 tbsp nutella
2 tsp coffee powder
Handful of chopped dates
1 large chopped pieces of 5 stars
Handful of nuts to sprinkle on the top
Preheat oven at 180° c for 10 minutes.
Grease your baking pan with little butter.
Take butter and sugar in a bowl. Mix at speed one until the colour changes from dark to light brown. Do scrape in between.
Add one egg at a time and switch on your mixer at stirring speed only. Add essence and milk. Mix well. You can see the shredded texture at this stage of your batter. Don’t worry. Keep on going as I say.
Now stop your running mixer and add nutella and coffee powder along with essence. Mix well.
Now add flour in 2 portions. Mix initially with spatula otherwise flour will be all over on your counter which will be a mess😖. After mixing with spatula, using the whisker mix the batter at speed one for 30-40 seconds until well blended.
Add chopped chocolate. Fold well.
Transfer the batter into greased mould and sprinkle the nuts and spread dates. Bake at 170° c for 40-45 minutes or until your tester comes out clean from the middle of your cake.
As done, transfer the cake mould on wired rack and let it cool completely.
What more??? Slice and enjoy😜😋
