    Very moist and tasty! The spices in this cake really stand out and the cake just melts in your mouth. The coffee icing is the bomb. I agree with Elmotoo - it ROCKS!

    So I made this today for company that is coming over tonight, and I had to sneak a piece...I can't say enough how good this is!! Wow, it knocked me out! Now, I did not have buttermilk, but I improvised and used some sour cream mixed with milk and I imagine it had the same effect, a beautiful moist cake with a delectable icing! Thanks for posting!!
