Chocolate Cake with Coffee Frosting
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
I love this icing because it's lower in calories than most and not too sweet.
Very good. I did add 2 cups of confectioners' sugar to the frosting, as I found it too runny. Again, I have to complain about TofH changing the name of recipes that have been printed to its cookbooks. This recipe was originally called Moist Chocolate Cake in 2005.
Five stars for the frosting, but four stars for the cake. We found the cake itself to be a bit on the dry side, but the frosting is fantastic! It is easy to make and is as glossy as it looks in the above photo. I use the frosting for my smaller cakes and as a filling between cake layers. It sets up quickly, so I make separate batches if I am using it as a filling and as a glaze for the top layer, too.
Wish I had read all the reviews before making this recipe. The icing is awesome but, like many others , we found the cake itself to be a little dry. I love the idea of adding some sour cream to the mix. The only thing I added was a teaspoonful of powdered espresso instant coffee to the cake mixture. Will try it again with some small changes.
Really enjoyed the results, just now got a call , and we have guests coming over, I already started making the cake not knowing that I do not have chocolate, any advice for a substitute , will Cocoa work?
It is delicious and I keep making it for special occasions. But I cannot seem to get the frosting to work correctly...
I made these for my childen affer they came in from critter catchin, and oh golly did they much these up!! Something that I added (for a little cick to the snack) is a dollop of buuter... deeelicious!!
I made this cake today with a couple modifications. I used grapeseed oil instead of canola oil, and for the buttermilk, I used an almond milk and vinegar mixture. The cake turned out great, and we all enjoyed it for my husband's birthday! I would definitely make this cake again!
Love this recipe, have been making it for years. Cake is moist, and frosting very flavorful if you use coffee. Making it today for my son's birthday.
