Ingredients
  • 9 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1½ cups Cake Flour (not self-rising)
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 4 ounces Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup strong Coffee
  • ½ cup Whole Milk
  • 3 4inch mini Heart Shape Pans
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Spray the 3 tins with Baker's Joy or any other spray or you can also use butter.
  3. Sift together the cocoa powder, cake flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  4. I another bowl of either your electric mixer or hand mixer beat the butter and sugar for 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time till fully incorporated.
  5. Mix together the milk and coffee.
  6. Stir in the dry ingredients with the wet.
  7. Pour into prepared heart shaped mini tins. There will be excess batter so you may want to make a small round cake or some cupcakes on the side!
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Notes
I normally do not frost a cake till the next day. After the cake is fully cooled I wrap it tight in plastic wrap to let the cake settle overnight and frost the next day. Do not make the mistake of overfilling the small mini pans or you WILL have a mess in your oven. This happened to me on my first try of making these. I say fill them no more than half way! For a 9-inch cake heat oven to 350, Bake for 25 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean.
