I have this same recipe and I will tell you it is the BEST trifle. I've made others with brownies, but this one is a little different! The cake is lighter and the coffee adds not only to the taste but the consistency! I highly recommend this one! Straight into my online cookboo. I'm actually surprised this wasn't posted on Zaar before. ;) you beat me to it. Thanks for posting. ~V
