Description

Let’s just climb on in.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ½ cups Strong Coffee
  • 1 teaspoon Real Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 pinch Coarse Salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Once creamed, add each egg, one at a time, until creamy and silky.

Pour the milk, coffee and vanilla extract into the mixture and give her one more good whirl, just to get it all good and mixed.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, cayenne, baking powder, and the small pinch of salt. For the heck of it, sift it a couple more times, just to be the good little baker that you are.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold fold fold and whisk whisk whisk until combined and smooth like a dream.

Pour mixture into a lightly greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Start checking at the 40-minute mark.

Let cool about 10 minutes. Hahaha, right.

Garnish with a nice chocolate sauce or powdered sugar. Slice and inhale all of it at once and never look back.

This is fantastic and exactly what I was looking for – simple, but great depth of flavor. I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to mimic Mexican hot chocolate. Love it!
