In my search I kept seeing a common theme with the recipes…many of them had coffee in the ingredients. I had always bypassed those recipes because I do not like coffee flavoured anything, except for a cup of coffee. I really, really do not like coffee in my desserts. But I was curious why coffee was even in chocolate cake recipes…so I googled it. Apparently, coffee does not add coffee flavour, but instead it boosts the flavour of the cocoa. And it does. This cake has no coffee flavour at all. Just a really good, rich chocolate flavour.
This cake was so rich, so moist, so chocolatey and so easy to make. Honestly, it really was no harder to make than opening a box of cake mix. Truly. It’s a staple recipe…a go to!
