Mocha Pudding Cake

For last week's #GBBO I so wanted to make a tiramisu.
One of my mum's favourite desserts, and one that gets a tick from me.
But, as always, there's a reality check, and a check of the cupboards.

And with a reliance on everyday items, and an appreciation that this would be for Mr J and I to devour...
It seemed right to avoid the tiramisu and dreams of a fondant.
And try for a pudding cake.  
So we took the best bits and created a mocha pudding cake.
And with Mr J, the man who never orders a dessert, stating he'd order this a second time,
I knew my taste buds weren't deceived.

Ingredients:
Base
125g self raising flour 
90g hot chocolate powder
2tsps baking powder

75g caster sugar
220mls milk 
1 medium egg
1tbs vanilla essence
50g melted unsalted butter

Topping
30g cocoa powder
75g caster sugar
150g dark brown sugar

180mls strongly brewed coffee (20g) at room temperature.
Method:
  1. Preheat the oven at 160 degrees celsius. 
  2. Combine the flour, hot chocolate powder and baking powder in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, melted butter, vanilla essence and egg, and gradually add the 75g of caster sugar.
  4. Fold in the dry mixture to the wet mixture and whisk until combined and smooth in consistency.
  5. Pour the mixture into a baking dish.
  6. Combine the cocoa powder, caster sugar and brown sugar. Layer over the batter.
  7. Pour the coffee over the top.
  8. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the cake is bubbling with a firm top.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
Enjoy!
