More often than usual we think of baking birthday cakes at home and save both the budget and efforts of getting them from outside. In this regard, this no-bake birthday cake recipe will help you big time. The chocolate batter is first prepared by simple hand mixer mixing, and then It is cooked in a cooking pot instead of the oven.This cooking pot technique gives this cake a super soft and spongy texture that you will definitely love. When the cake is prepared it is also topped with a special chocolatey sauce. And you can also prepare this sauce at home. The best part that I like about this cake is the strong coffee flavor it has which creates a new and tempting blend with the chocolate.
