      This recipe is rich and chocolatey! I love how the coffee enhances the flavor of the chocolate and gives the cake such an intense flavor. I used 1/2 cup regular cocoa powder and 1/2 cup special dark cocoa powder. I also frosted the cake with a double recipe of Easy Microwave Chocolate Glaze. Then, topped the glaze with mini-peanut butter cups. Yum!

      I made this fabulous chocolate cake this evening. Very moist and very chocolate!! It rose great which always makes a baker happy. I have posted pictures of before frosting and after! I put a chocolate cream cheese frosting on it. One stick butter, 1/2 cream cheese package, 1/2 box conf. sugar, enough milk for texture (just a little bit) pinch salt. Unsweetened chocolate powder 1/2 c chocolate and 1/2 c the new extra dark chocolate. Whip a bunch in mixer!! Very good and made it look pretty too! The perfect touch for the perfect chocolate cake!

      Indeed, dark, rich and with an intense chocolate taste. The coffee made the chocolate taste stand out so much more. I beat the eggs in a small bowl before adding to the batter which made it easier to incorporate them. Baked the cake in a round, 24cm in diameter, tin and it rose up wonderful making every slice look that much better. In the baking tin I put parchment paper and had no trouble at all that the cake should stick and be difficult to get out, didn't even grease the paper. Because I baked the cake in a round tin it needed a little more time in the oven. After 48 minutes the cake was baked to perfection.
      We are not much for frosting so I left that out, besides, the cake is so rich and moist it does not really need frosting.
      This became a special treat! Thanks for posting.
