Being a true chocolate lover, I always find ways to have them in some way or the other. :) Whenever I crave for chocolates especially on sunday evenings it has be one of these - Molten Lava Cake / Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting. But now I was on the look out for new chocolate recipes and found this one. Chocolate and Coffee is one of my favorite combination.

  2. In the original recipe the quantity added is 1 1/2 cup.
  3. I added 1 tsp vinegar to 1/2 cup milk at room temp to make buttermilk.
  4. Use eggs at room temperature. If it is too small add 3 eggs.
