This was very very good! My son doesn't like cake but he had two pieces of this one. We took it to a superbowl party and the cake was finished even with all the other desserts that were there. I would like to try stronger coffee but it was great how it turned out today too!
I thought this was pretty good. It's quite flexible in that you can add things like hemp seed or chocolate shavings if you like. I added 4 Tbsp hemp seed and sprinkled some peppermint chocolate shavings for added flavor. This recipe is actually enough for 12 cupcakes and a thin cake. I bet you could make a couple of think cakes, spread icing on them, and put them one on top of the other to make a layer cake.
A big thank you, Sarah_Jayne, for sharing this recipe. It is so flavorful and moist., very sponge-like. I added the powdered sugar only to add visual effect because in reality this is so good it needs no additional trapings. I made 24 mini bundt cakes out of this recipe and baked them for 12 minutes. Made for the Comfort Cafe, a tag game.
I grew up with this exact recipe, it is SOOO moist and delicious that it's hard to share! I always asked for this cake with peanut butter icing for my birthday.
