Choca-Mocha Cake

This choca-mocha cake recipe is a crowd-pleaser.

Ingredients

“I’ve never been a hardened coffee drinker, so a mocha – that moreish combination of coffee and chocolate – is my go-to hot drink,” says food writer Sarah Rainey.

“This recipe combines these two favourite flavours in a moist, fudgey cake, topped with a super-speedy coffee icing that you can drizzle on while it’s still hot.”
