"Delicious dark flavour, but too much sauce for the amount of cake. Definitely needs ice cream."

"I did make a couple of changes, I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9 x 9 pan and baked for 40 min. and omitted the expresso powder, but did use coffee as part of the water in the topping ...My family was surprized and cleaned the pan...Would highly recommend this recipe and will for sure make it again really soon..."
