This a a light and moist cake that is not overly sweet due to the addition of coffee. The recipe comes from Food and Wine Magazine (November 2006). I have made it many many times and enjoy eating it as much as making it. This cake travels well. I have also subsituted Splenda for the sugar and it turned out the same. I will try to cut the the oil to 1/2 cup and add 1/4 cup applesauce next time I make it. You can also make double the ganache for extra chocolate decadence!
