Yes, This Was My Breakfast

Day 267 (23rd May)

Hands down one of the best breakfasts I've had! I made hot chocolate and coffee cake which paired so well with the stormy weather.

Here's the recipe:

For the coffee cake (One serving):


  • Two tablespoons of coffee

  • Three to four tablespoons (taste test!) of powdered sugar

  • Half a cup of milk

  • Two tablespoons of olive oil

  • One teaspoon of baking powder

  • Half a cup of flour


  • Whisk the coffee and the milk together.

  • Whisk the oil and the sugar together till just combined.

  • Add the coffee (with milk) to the oil and sugar.

  • Sift in the sugar, flour, and baking powder.

  • Stir everything with a spoon and add it to a greased microwave-safe dish.

  • Microwave for two minutes, or the cake starts pulling from the sides of the container.

Optional: Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

For the hot chocolate (One serving):


  • Half a cup of milk

  • One tablespoon of cornstarch

  • Five cubes (about fifty grams) of chopped dark chocolate

  • One tablespoon of powdered sugar

  • One tablespoon of cocoa powder


  • Whisk all ingredients except the chocolate in a pan.

  • Simmer it over medium heat.

  • Gradually add the chocolate.

  • Heat till the mixture thickens (about three to four minutes).

Recommended: Serve with a dollop of whipped cream!
