By pastry chef Kyla Eaglesham


Yield: approximately 6 servings

1 cup (250 g) yogourt
2 cups (400 g) sugar
3 cups (375 g) flour
1/2 cup (125 g) of oil
3 eggs (150 g)
250 mL brewed Reunion Island Coffee
1 1/2 tsp (7.5 g) of baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp (5 g) of vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tbsp chocolate ganache

  1. Mix together all ingredients except ganache in a mixing bowl. Blend on medium speed with paddle attachment for 8 minutes.
  2. Pour batter into prepared coffee mugs, filling each about 3/4 of the way.
  3. Add a dollop of chocolate ganache to each mug and rake with a spatula to create a marbled texture. (Do not blend completely.)
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in a preheated (350 F) oven, until tops are golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.

Easy Chocolate Ganache

80 mL 10% (coffee) cream
1 1/3 cups dark chocolate wafers
2 tbsp your favourite liqueur (any will do!)

  1. Combine ingredients; microwave for 1 minute at 50% power.
  2. Remove and stir well. Microwave for 1 more minute at 50% power.
  3. Remove and stir until blended completely.

Note: For extra rich ganache, use 35% whipping cream.
