Chocolate Coffee Yogurt Cake
Adapted from Epicurious

This cake is very moist and fluffy. It’s really not too chocolately and it’s got a hint of coffee. I added coffee powder, but one could substitute coffee for the water. I also totally misread the original recipe instead of adding ¾ stick of butter, added ¾ cups oil, which probably just made it richer and more delicious (as doubling the fat in a recipe will likely do).

Makes about: 1 loaf
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 50-60 minutes

¾ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/3 cup water
1 cup whole-milk plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ cups sugar
1.5 tsp instant coffee granules
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
