"You'll love this super moist, rich chocolate cake (or cupcakes) made with Starbucks coffee. The coffee enhances the fudgey flavor of this dessert, but does not leave you with a coffee taste. (I'm not a big fan of coffee, but I could eat this cake all day!) This is a simple, one-bowl recipe for cooks of all skill levels."
Serving Size: 1 (199 g)

"Tastes Like CHICKEN!!!"
"So Yummy! Totally the best scratch cupcake recipe I've tried. I had fun mixing up the ingredients and playing with the two-toned icing. I've never done cake decorating before, so I definitely had fun making little designs with the frosting. <br/><br/>Nothing brightens your day like cupcakes :)<br/><br/>DO NOT bake on the top shelf! Oh my, I regretted that one. Bottom shelf, definitely bottom shelf."
"This is a keeper recipe, I did this first time and was a hit. I followed the recipe and made no alterations and my picky eaters finish it in a snap."
"My step daughter made these. Turned out really yummy! moist and delicious!! thanks for a keeper!"
"I made this for the first time today and the moistness there's absolutely no question, but the baking powder/baking soda needs to be reduced because of that aftertaste and smell."
"Best ever !! I have been making cakes for a long time...should have started here !!"
"I have tried the recipe soo many times. I just cant seem to get it to cook correctly. the middle always sinks and the top comes out a little chewy. My oven is fan based. Can you please tell me what is the correct temp to bake them in. However the taste is fantastic. please help"
"Delish! I used Starbucks Cafe Verona which I brewed in my Tassimo - no coffee aftertaste, just yummy chocolatey goodness! I topped my cupcakes with recipe #4405 - a caramel frosting and then sprinkled on some Skor toffee bits. YUM! Wonderful recipe - will definitely make again!"
"Brilliant! I dont like coffee, but there is no such hint in these superb little cakes. Have used many times already, once for a birthday cake."
"OMG!!! This is awesome!!!! AND easy!!! Thanks, loved the hint of coffee. Some other reviewer thought it left a bitter aftertaste of coffee, maybe your coffee was too strong. I thought it was a perfect cupcake!"
"yummy! Moist, dark chocolatey with a hint of mocha. My son LOVED them & ordered a whole batch for his class for his birthday tomorrow, & has boasted about them to everyone. I'm looking forward to making a double batch tonight."
"mmm! These are so yummy! Made these into cupcakes, they were so moist! Frosted with coffee frosting:) http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Mocha-Brownies-With-Coffee-Frosting-103762 Really good when you eat right out of the refrigerator!"
"I hate hate hate to give this such a low review. The taste was great, it was as descriped moist. I just couldnt get them to turn out right. They just wouldnt rise right. I've tried to make them at least 4 times. Each time the same result."
"REALLY good and moist! I used Dunkin Doughnuts coffee and Hershey's Special Dark cocoa... it was wonderful! I am not a coffee drinker and couldn't taste the stuff... just a nice, rich chocolate flavor. I will be making these again! Thanks so very much!"
"I will give this cake 4 stars because it is true to its name in that it is ultra moist. But I think it lacked the chocolatey flavor that I was expecting."
"Yum!! These are so delicious! I made a half recipe and made cupcakes for a baby shower today. Covered with store bought vanilla frosting which I colored pink. These were so moist and tasty; I made yesterday and stored in a covered cake pan. Would definitely highly recommend and will definitely make again!"
"I made these today and they were a huge hit!! Thanks so much for a such a delicious cupcake. I also followed other reviewers comments and did the Coffee Frosting...amazing! I topped mine off with an Epicure Mocha Bean...in white, milk and dark chocolate. I think I may add some dark chocolate chips to the batter too next time to chocofy it even more :) Thanks again...they are in my recipe box."
"These really were very moist, but we found we didn't notice the coffee flavor until that bitter, distinctly coffee aftertaste... not entirely the best way to remember these delicious cupcakes! I look forward to trying the recipe with rich hot chocolate subbed in for the coffee. Yum!"
"Made a double batch for my daughter's birthday party, and they all went fast! Best cupcakes we've ever tasted, got endless compliments! Great recipe."
"This takes the cake for MOIST even though I used one cup of wholemeal flour - it was beautiful !"
