Reviews for Mix-in-the-Pan Cake
"A very good, light, moist cake. Just a note that you won't be able to taste the coffee. It accents the chocolate, but does not stand out at all."
"I make this cake often but combine in a regular mixing bowl. Every good chocolate cake has coffee in the recipe as a chocolate enhancer and this one fits the bill. It's become my husband's favorite "quick" cake. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Frannie T."
