unsweetened cocoa powder
cold, brewed coffee
1 1/2 cups
My review is for the cake only, which is moist and delicious with a deep chocolate flavor. Light and fluffy with a coarse, open crumb - I'm almost inclined to say too light and fluffy and bordering squishy. Tastes great, but it could be a little sturdier. I made this as cupcakes, and because they were so soft and spongy they were a bit of a challenge to frost.
It doesn't fit in ONE 9" x 13" pan like the recipe says, mine ended up looking like a gigantic cupcake! Also,to me it tasted like a normal chocolate cake.
I made this cake on new years eve, and then, it was DEE-LISH-USS!!! But then I made it a second time, it was a bit dry and you could actually TASTE the coffee, which you're not supposed to. So when me and my mom made it a 3rd time, we changed it up a bit, we use 1 full cup of oil instead of 1/2, and added a bit more vanilla, and it was... THE BEST CAKE EVER! A keeper fo sho.
i made it with cinnamon nut coffee and baked it at 325 to make sure it baked through. it was perfect and moist and delicious. a definite keeper!
I used hot chocolate instead of coffee and it turned out well
Very moist and flavorful!
This cake was fast and easy to make and tasted great. It had a deep, rich chocolaty flavor. Moist and delicious! I used a buttercream icing to frost it.
This is really great cake.I made it for my husbands birthday and everyone reved about it. I added cocoa to the frosting and it was really, really nice. I will be making this again. Thanks!!
