This was a huge hit with my fiance and our guests tonight. Even I really enjoyed it, and I don't even like the flavor of coffee! ;) It was very easy to prepare, and the end result was an impressive-looking, pretty coffee cake that had just the right balance of coffee and chocolate flavors. Just for variety, I think I may try making this sometime without the coffee, and adding in some shredded coconut; I bet it would be just as wonderful! Thanks for sharing this great addition to my recipe collection.
