    Annacia's Note:

    Another treat for coffee lovers. It doesn't rise as high as a regular layer cake, so you didn't do anything wrong *wink*. Time does not include chilling.

      What an excellent cake! Love the combo of walnuts, coffee and chocolate. I cut the sugar down to one cup, used Smart Balance, and used 2 eggs plus 4 whites, which all worked out well. I skipped the frosting and cooked this a few minutes shorter. This is still a fluffy cake with a nice crumb. I am sure it would make delicious cupcakes too!
