Recipe Notes

*The coffee CANNOT be tasted in the cake and just intensifies the chocolate flavour. BUT you can replace with 1/4 cup plain water if you wish
**Use a yogurt you like the taste of. One not too bitter, or the bitterness will come out in the frosting
***Please don’t be tempted to NOT line your baking tin. The cake will stick to the sides without the parchment or baking paper
