Servings 4 people


  • cup sugar
  • cup cake flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • tsp baking powder
  • tsp bicarb of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup oil
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp marula cream flavour (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 360 g condensed milk
  • ½ cup coffee
  • 250 ml whipping cream
  • 360 g nestle caramel


  • Combine dry ingredients. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl.
  • Add both sugars and salt and whisk to blend well, pressing out any lumps of brown sugar.
  • Combine wet ingredients. Combine eggs, oil, melted butter, vinegar, marula cream flavour and vanilla essence in a bowl and whisk to blend well.
  • Mix wet and dry ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix with a whisk or an electric hand mixer on medium-low until blended. It will be thick and somewhat dry.
  • Mix in hot coffee. Add the hot coffee gradually in two stages to minimize clumps forming and beat until evenly combined and the batter smooth.
  • Bake. Divide batter evenly between the prepared pans and bake for 30-33 minutes until cakes spring back when pressed gently and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Transfer pans to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes before inverting onto the rack to cool completely.
  • For icing, mix caramel and whipping cream together and leave it in the fridge to set.
