    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This cake is dangerous, you'll be tempted to eat the whole cake yourself! If you don't have a pan with a removable rim, use an 8 or 9-inch square or round baking pan and use a spatula to remove the slices. Instant coffee granules can be substituted for the espresso powder
