Great cake for summer, light yet tasty. I got the original recipe from Better Homes & Gardens 'Jiffy Cooking'.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare cake mix according to directions, But dissolve coffee in the water. Add vanilla. Bake as directed. Cool.
  2. Mocha topping.
  3. Combine 1 1/2 cups whipping cream, 3 T sugar, 2 T cocoa, 2 t instant coffee, & 3/4 t vanilla. Whip until fluffy. Spread on cake and chill.
  4. I cheat on the topping (and lower calories),.
  5. I use a large tub of Cool Whip, add just the instant coffee and cocoa, stir slightly, let set in fridge overnight to start coffee dissolving, then finish stirring in the next day.
