Okay! lets bake!
How to make mocha coffee coffee cake with step by step pictures.
Preheat oven to 180 degree c and grease your bundt pan (refer notes).
Bring all the ingredients to room temp.
Add softened (room temp) butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl. Cream well for a min with an electric beater. Add in two eggs. (Adapted from here)
Cream the eggs till pale and fluffy about 2 mins. Add in the vanilla extract, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and curd (yogurt).
Mix on low speed until everything is incorporated and on high speed for 40 seconds. The batter will be fluffy and creamy.
Transfer 1/3 of the batter to a bowl and add in the coffee mix. Mix well.
Transfer 1/3 of the batter to a bowl and add in the cocoa mix and mix or stir well.
Spoon all three batters into the greased bundt pan.... alternating so that each flavor is distributed well in the pan.
If you wish you can run a small tooth pick into the batter to give it a more marble effect, but I do not usually do that...I prefer it this way. Bake for 55-60 mins at 180 degree C or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan or on a rack for 30 mins, then invert into a wire rack to cool completely.
Lets make the glaze:
In a bowl, stir instant coffee with 2 tbsp brewed coffee until the instant coffee powder is dissolved. Add powdered sugar and stir until well combined. If the glaze is pourable thin with the remaining brewed coffee.
Pour glaze over the coffee cake and let it stand for about 10 mins or until the glaze is set.
