Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Total time: 55 minutes
Yield: Serves 3-4


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate (50% cocoa), chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp brewed coffee

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180-degree Celcius.
  2. Grease the baking tin with oil and line the bottom with baking paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder.
  4. Then add sugar and salt. Stir it well.
  5. Pour buttermilk, vegetable oil and warm water. Whisk until combined.
  6. Add egg and vanilla essence. Whisk until smooth.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared tin. Bake on the middle rack for 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centre of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Remove from oven and keep it aside to cool down.
  9. To make the ganache glaze, add heavy cream and butter to a saucepan. Heat it on low flame until it just begins to simmer. Turn the flame off.
  10. Add the chocolate and give it a quick stir. Allow it to stand for about 3-5 minutes so that the chocolate softens completely.
  11. Whisk to combine, until smooth.
  12. Add in the brewed coffee and mix again. Allow it to cool down.
  13. Carefully take the cake out of the pan and place it on a plate. Pour the ganache over it. Garnish it with chocolate coated raisins.
