Ingredients:

FOR SPONGE

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups caster sugar
  • ½ cup soft butter
  • 4 tbspns sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk
  • Few drops vanilla essence
  • 1 tspn coffee
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tspns baking powder
  • 4 tbspns cocoa
  • ½ cup grate dry coconut (optional)
  • Some soft butter to grease the pan
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

FOR FROSTING

  • 2 cups cream
  • 200 gms bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 tbspns honey
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 packet of M&Ms or smarties

Procedure:

-Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius.

-In a food processer or with a hand beater, mix butter and sugar for 5 minutes and add eggs (one at a time). Mix well until the mixture is foamy and fluffy. Now add vanilla essence and milk. Mix well.

-Combine flour, coffee, coconut, cocoa and baking powder in a separate mixing bowl. Now slowly introduce the liquid mixture to all the dry ingredients and mix well with a spatula or a wooden spoon.

-Stir in chopped walnuts and pour this mixture in a 21 cm greased, spring form cake pan.  Bake for 30 – 40 minutes on middle rack. -Check with a wooden skewer or toothpick if your cake is ready. (TIP: if you see the cake is burning from top, cover it with aluminum foil. The best way to check your cake is done is to poke a toothpick or a skewer in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean; that means your cake is ready)

-When your toothpick test is successful, take it out and keep aside for at least 20 minutes.

FOR FROSTING

-Chop the bittersweet chocolate into small pieces and pour over boiling cream. Stir well. Now add honey and icing sugar and mix well. Avoid lumps.

-Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

ASSEMBLING

-Now with a spatula cover the top surface and the sides of the cake. Now top it with smarties or m&ms and refrigerate for at least 60 minutes before serving.
