           Frankly speaking it is now a habit of making a cake out of nothing and always try to make and post different varieties of cake recipes but as usual I am always late in posting a recipe and there is a long queue of recipes to be posted.
       Never mind this time it was the occasion of making a wonderful cake of my sister’s choice and her choice always goes toward chocolate and coffee one .So I decided to make a coffee cake with black currant with chocolate ring. I was very happy to make the ring almost perfect and the taste and overall look came out just good. My sister “Bobo” was also very happy with her custom cake made on her. So presenting "Coffee Cake with Chocolate Ring" for all who love Coffee Cake.The use of with black currant also fits quite well.Try it yourself and enjoy...

·        Leave it for 3-4 minutes to cool.
·        While it is drying, use whipped cream on the side wall of the cake to stick the chocolate ring.
·        Stick the butter paper at the edge of the cake and press lightly and very carefully.

·        Keep it in this position into refrigerator for 2 minutes and wax the butter paper.
