Cocoa Buttermilk Cake

If you are looking for a chocolate cake. This is it!!!
I didn't do any icing or frosting on it, but it would be even more delicious if there is chocolate ganash on top.

The original recipe is a buttermilk bundt cake. Indeed, it would be even better if it has a bundt shape... Maybe one day I'll get a nice bundt baking pan :D
I've added chocolate sprinkes in the mixture as well as on top the cake. You can see the sprinkes a bit inside the cake and star sprinkles on top. They give the cake a bit of charm :P

Apparently, the cake is even better after 2-3 days.


160 ml buttermilk
150 g butter
120 g sugar
50 g almond flour
150 g flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence (original recipe uses vanilla pod)

Preheat oven to 160 C. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale.
Add eggs one by one then vanila and whisk to combine.
Add the butter mixture to the flour, almond flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder and stir to combine.
Spoon the mixture into a 24 cm tin and bake for about 30-35 min or until skewer comes out clean.
Let it cool in the tin.
