Easy Deep Chocolate Pound Cake

前几天我突然很想吃巧克力蛋糕,所以在网上找做法简单又低胆固醇的食谱,给我找到了这个食谱。虽然原来食谱做的是杯子蛋糕,也没有用蛋,理因不符合pound cake的做法,但为求方便,我做了pound cake状的巧克力蛋糕。这食谱没有蛋,我也把油减至35ml,糖也减至60g,吃起来较不觉得太罪恶。


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brewed coffee (or 1 cup of warm water mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of espresso powder or instant coffee granules)
1 Tbsp white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 Tbsp (1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp) olive oil


1 Preheat oven to 350°F with a rack in the middle position. Prepare a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

2 In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt until there are no visible clumps (cocoa tends to clump up).

3 In a separate bowl, mix together the coffee (or water plus coffee granules), vinegar, vanilla extract, and olive oil.

4 Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir only until they just come together. The mixture should be thin and rather lumpy.

5 Ladle the batter into the cupcake liners, filling them about two-thirds of the way full. Place in oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a bamboo skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.

6 Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool on a rack. Once cool, you can eat plain, sprinkle with powdered sugar, or drizzle or coat with frosting.

吃了,拍下照片做记录了,才偶然发现其他博客正参与以下的Bake Along #42: Deep Chocolate Pound Cake的项目。我既然刚做了巧克力蛋糕,又刚好配合这次的主题,所以也来凑热闹,把这个post投到这里
