Wow! I made this cake for a New Year's Day brunch and it was a huge hit. If you love chocolate and coffee like I do, then this cake is for you. It couldn't be easier to make, and it comes out moist and dense like a cake made from scratch. The glaze makes the cake. The only thing I didn't have was the coffee liqueur, so I just made super strong coffee, used that in its place, and it turned out fine. A definite keeper!
