Eggless Chocolate Raisin Coffee Bread

Dear All,
Eggless Baking,Chocolate,Eggless Breads,Raisins

The moment I saw Eggless Coffee Banana Bread at Cilantro i knew i wanted to try out the recipe but I am not a big fan of bananas and hence I dont buy them very often until and unless I am making a fruit salad. I used Cilantro's recipe as a base and made this Eggless Chocolate Raisin Coffee Bread. I love Cadbury's Temptations especially the one with raisins and rum, so I was inspired to use chocolate and raisins combo and was quite sure it would work well. Another reason for using raisins was that, few weeks back i bought a large bag of raisins which were on sale! The cake is perfect as a tea time treat, its dense and chocolaty, not too sweet but has perfect blend of coffee and chocolate! This is a perfect bread for people like me who love coffee and chocolate together!

Adapted from Cilantro's recipe
Ingredients:-
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/3 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup freshly brewed strong black coffee*
1 cup raisins
2 tbsp rum (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract

* Make sure the coffee is warm and not boiling hot.

Procedure:-
  • Soak the raisins with 2 tbsp of rum. If you dont want to use alcohol, pls use orange juice or you can completely skip this step as well. I prefer juicy raisins in my cake hence i soaked them with 2 tbsp of rum for about 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease and flour a loaf pan 5-9 inch in size.
  • Sieve the dry ingredients and keep aside.
  • In a seperate bowl, mix together oil, sugar and vanilla. Add in the flour mixture alternatively with black coffee.
  • Sprinkle some flour on raisins and add them into the batter. Mix them well.
  • Pour the cake in greased or lined cake pan and bake at 180 degrees C for 40 to 45 mins, until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool the cake completely before slicing. The  tastes even better after refrigeration.
