This coffee cake was very good. It has great chocolate flavor and its not to sweet. It was pretty easy to make. The cake is moist and I cooked it for the 1 hour the chef called for. I did found the coffee flavor was almost nonexistence . My overall feeling is that its well worth making. Thanks kiwilover for posting this recipe.
