Cold Coffee With Hot Chocolate Powder

Cold Coffee With Hot Chocolate Powder is just my version of cold coffee. Having coffee powder and hot chocolate powder, I thought why not mix both the powder in milk for that extra flavor of chocolate with coffee and this drink was born. Its not a rocket science but it makes one feel satisfied when the result is good and my husband liked it a lot and of course now its my favorite drink too.

Milk 1 cup {Boiled and Chilled}
Coffee Powder 1/2 tbsp
Hot Chocolate Powder 1/2 tbsp
Sugar 1 tbsp
Ice Cubes 3 - 4 {Optional}

In a mixer jar / blender pour chiller milk. Add coffee powder, hot chocolate powder and sugar and blend well.
{Note: sugar talks time to dissolve in chilled milk, so blend well}.

Transfer to a coffee mug.

Enjoy the sip of rich aromatic coffee chocolate combo. 

I use chilled milk and avoid ice cubes as I like the thick creamy texture that forms with milk. If ice is added, then the water of the ice makes it a bit watery in texture.

Baking soda 1/4th tsp
Powdered Sugar 1/4th cup
Salt a pinch
Butter 1/4th cup {at room temperature}
Condensed Milk 1/2 cup
Milk 1/4th cup
Vanilla Essence 2 tsp
Tutti Frutti 1/2 cup

For pressure cooker baking:
Salt, to cover the bottom.

Step 1:                                               
Take a bowl, add powdered sugar and butter and beat well with a hand whisk.

Step 5: 

Now add Tutti Frutti and Vanilla essence and give a good whisk. 

Our cake batter is ready. 

Step 6:

Grease a cake pan and transfer the cake batter into the greased pan.

Lets Bake the Cake...
Step 7:
Take the pressure cooker. Add salt on the bottom of the cooker{I call it salt bed}, this is to prevent direct heat to the cake pan. 

Pre-heat the pressure cooker covered for 5 minutes on high flame.

Carefully open the cooker and Place the cake pan into the pressure cooker carefully over the salt bed. The pan should not touch the sides of the cooker.

Close the lid {without the whistle and rubber gasket} and bake on high flame for 5 minutes, and reduce the flame to low and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. It took 25 minutes for my cake to get baked. 

Insert a skewer and if it comes out clean, the cake is ready. 

Take it out of the cooker, and allow to cool for 5 minutes. 

Now take a plate and invert the pan to the plate by tapping it slowly.

Straighten the cake downside to upside.

A soft Moist cake is ready. Enjoy:):)

Important Note on Pressure Cooker Baking:
Before baking the cake using a pressure cooker, please follow the following steps..

Remove the whistle{vent weight}, gasket {rubber ring}. 

Regular use of pressure cooker for baking is not good, as the metal of the pressure cooker may get damaged.
