Very simple to make! Since the previous reviewer couldn't taste coffee, I used 3/4 cup espresso instead of regular coffee. I would say the cake has a definite coffee flavor, kind of like a gingerbread with coffee instead of ginger as the main flavor. I used butter instead of shortening, and I used only 1/2 cup sugar, and it seemed plenty sweet to me. Next time I will add some cinnamon, which I think would complement the coffee flavor without overwhelming it.

Nice and simple. I could not taste any coffee, though, which did not leave the cake with any specific flavour. My husband didn't seem to find anything wrong with it! I almost had to pull him away, so it seems to just be a matter of taste:)
