  • Instructions for Cake:
  • Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.
  • Mix wet ingredients together in separate bowl.
  • Add wet to dry a little at a time, stirring as you add.
  • Pour batter into WELL-GREASED bundt cake pan (well-greased is key--this is a sticky cake; I use Pam with great results), bake at 350 for 35-40 minute.
  • Serving suggestions: with fresh whipped cream& strawberries, or drizzle with warm caramel or Kahlua, or glaze with mocha glaze (or some combo thereof!).
  • Instructions for Glaze:
  • Mix dry ingredients together in bowl.
  • Dissolve coffee in 1 tablespoon of milk; add extract.
  • Whisk coffee liquid into dry ingredients; whisk until all blended and if needed, add 1/2 tablespoon more milk.
  • USE GLAZE IMMEDIATELY OVER CAKE. It will harden quickly.
