This cake was very tasty and pretty quick and easy to make. Also great to use up some of that extra coffee my DH makes in the morning! It really does seem an odd way of making, but it turned out well. Best while warm, but we've been eating it at room temp as well and it's still good! Would definitely go well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
