I turned it into cupcakes for my son's school cupcake wars and to me it took the cake
Just as it says
delicious! Thank you.
I even adjusted it ever so slightly.... sorry... to make it kid friendly without the coffee, added a cup of hot milo (4 heaped teaspoons of milo) yummy. But the coffee in it is delicious
Absolutely fantastic cake recipe. Everyone I made it for enjoyed it, it tastes well with vanilla ice cream also. The coffee I added was hazelnut and it added such a wonderful extra taste to the cake.
The only thing I would change is to add a bit of sugar(about 1/4 cup) to the frosting if your making it for a birthday party or something for kids or teens. I'm 17 and I don't mind it that much, but my 14 year old sister didn't like the frosting at all.
Otherwise, amazing cake recipe, I plan on making this in the future!
I am so not a cake baker, but I made this cake for a good friend's birthday this past weekend. It took about 40 minutes to bake in 9" pans, but otherwise it is great! Moist and flavorful! Thanks for posting.
Very easy to make and comes out very delicious too!
Perfect didn't make the icing since I made it into an ice cream cake and put a chocolate sauce between and topped with whip cream. For a birthday! Made 2 days ahead based on comments and reduced the salt. Thanks can't wait to make again!
I followed the recipe exactly & was very pleased with how the cake turned out.It was very moist with a good chocolate flavor.I. baked it in two nine inch rounds and assemled like a layer cake for a birthday party.Everyone enjoyed it. The icing was tricky.I used all butter because I didn"t have shortening so after whipping for ten minutes it still looked a little grainy & watery so I added two cups of powdered sugar and it was fine.I made and iced the cake a day ahead & stored in the fridge overnight. Will be making again.
While the cake was easy to prepare, it was just too moist and light to maintain a shape. Its texture made for getting it out of a properly greased and floured pan a rather unpleasant experience. I did tamp the quite flavorful pieces in a smaller cylindrical mold and made a denser cake-for-one. I used the rest of the original batter to make cupcakes that were perfectly comestible.
Taste was good; icing had little flavor. Really didn't do much for me. Wasn't bad, wasn't excellent. I've had much better luck (and received more compliments) with the "Just A Cake" recipe here on Food.com.
