The cake reminds me of my grandmother, because it was one of her specialties. I bake it often for family parties, and it always brings back fond memories. The cake is light and airy with a delicious chocolate taste. This recipe is a keeper! —Patricia Kreitz, Richland, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

Made this cake today and it was delicious, nice and chocolaty. I used 8 inch round pans and baked at 325 degrees but had to bake for 45 minutes not 25 minutes as stated in the recipe. Will definitely make this again

Made this recipe this weekend for my mother-in-law's birthday - it was so moist and tasty! Everyone loved it, and asked for more. I used cream cheese icing and it was just the right amount of sweet. You definitely CANNOT taste the coffee in it. Just chocolate, yummy chocolate!!

Excellent cake - very moist and wonderful flavor. I followed the directions exactly and no issues with grainy texture for the frosting. This is a keeper for us - thanks so much for sharing!
