I made this to bring to a friend's house when she invited us over for dinner....we had it for dessert...served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice was moist, chocolatey and everyone loved it ;)

U need :

1 cup cake flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp Nescafe powder
1 cup yogurt
3/4 cup brown castor sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/2 cup sunflower / canola oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

for the topping :
chopped walnuts
1 tbsp castor sugar
2 -3 tbsp semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix together flour, cocoa powder, coffee powder and keep aside.
In another bowl, beat together sugar and yogurt till creamy. Add in the baking powder, soda, vanilla and mix together...leave for a few minutes till there are bubbles on the surface...Add in the oil, flour mixture and mix till smooth but do not overmix it..
Pour batter into a greased pan...
Arrange walnuts on top and sprinkle with choc chips and sugar.
Bake at 200C for 10 mins and reduce to 170C for 30 mins or till cake it done.
