    Emily Passaro's Note:

    My grandmother taught me how to make this cake. This is the most moist chocolate cake I have ever tasted. It was my dad's favorite and now it is my husband's favorite too. The first 11 ingredients are for the cake and the last 6 are for the icing.

      I used all the ingredients as listed for the cake. It is a very delicious chocolate cake. It is very moist and good. You could not taste the flavor of coffee. My house was filled with teenagers last night and they ate it all up except for the last piece. I didn't use the icing on the recipe. I used a chocolate frosting because I only like chocolate frosting on chocolate cake.
