Well I made this exactly as written. If you didn't tell me it was supposed to be a tiramisu cake I never would have known. The cake was good but hardly any (if any) coffee flavor came through, and if I were to make it again I would probably cut the cake in half lengthwise and layer the cake with the frosting. It got eaten, no problems there! Just not what I was hoping for.

I've made this cake before and I do love it but I dont think 60 minutes is the correct baking time at 350. I took it out after only 50 minutes and it was still a bit dry... I'll try again but its a delicious cake the eveyrone loves.. just have to get the timing right

I made this cake to take to my daughters year end dance party. It was a hit!!! I was asked for the recipe over and over. My husband accidently purchased Irish Cream instead of Kahlua so we made two batches of icing. One Kahlua and one Irish Cream. They were both good; however I would favor the Irish Cream as it was a bigger hit with the kids and this cake we sprinkled with cinnamon instead of cocoa. I would recommend this recipe to everyone, very easy to make.

This is such a great cake recipe! I brought this to a work gathering along with some apple crisp, and no one could decide which to have, so everyone had both. I used Haagen Daazs light coffee ice cream for the cake (the extra calories weren't missed a bit). I agree with the other reviewers that the cake is even better once it's chilled for a while (the frosting was kinda drippy before it was fully chilled). Even with the slightly drippy frosting, though, it was a very attractive cake -- the cocoa powder on top is a nice contrast to the white frosting. This will definitely be a rerun recipe in my collection. Thanks for posting!

Soooo yummy! i used light coffee ice cream to make it healthy! :) I put some rum in the batter, and some vanilla flavoring. And then some coffee, instead of the Kahlua and Bailey's in the icing. Very good! I also baked in 9x13 pan so it would fit in my fridge. Thanks Rita!

I'm not a huge fan of coffee, but this was pretty good. My mother was in heaven though and she's stolen the recipe. :D I made it twice, the second time substituting triple chocolate fudge icecream. That time, I was in heaven. :D I made this for Zaar World Tour 05

This cake was so moist with a wonderful flavor. I do believe, if this is possible, that it tasted even better the second day after sitting in the refrigerator all night. The frosting was a lot easier to smooth on the longer it sat in the refrigerator as well. Excellent Flavor! Who would have thought....coffe ice cream???? Thanks Rita and thank Tim for me as well.
