Might be on the list for next year’s holiday baking! Thank you for the great feedback . And YAY about getting back to BundtBakers!! Hi Olivia, I made this cake today and the flavors are amazing! Thanks Julia! If it’s better to make 2 in 8 inch pans, I can always make the purchase. I came out really well..so fluffy, chocolaty and yummy. How fine is your espresso? I am definitely going to try making this cake – chocolate ‘n coffee, what’s not to love?! That is a good question… I’ve never baked in high altitude (that I know of), but I was able to find this link which has some tips. Can I use this as a base of my fondant? Let me know how it turns out!! The batter is thin but rises quite a bit, so I would only fill them half full or so. You could try to 1.5x the cake batter too, but don’t fill the pans more than half full as the batter rises a LOT. Hubs had roast chicken for supper and I had...cake. I bake the mocha chocolate cake 2 weeks ago for girls night out. Also I am a lazy creature and just used 2 eight inch cake pans- so mine was short and stocky vs slim and beautiful lol. Is there any easy way to make this cake with 8″ round pans? Alternatively, you can try using the recipe as is with only two 9″ pans. <3. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, and then turn out onto racks to cool completely. The buttercream is silky, smooth, and has the BEST mocha flavour ever. Hi Angie! Hi Becca! If the cake is out for 4-5 hours the frosting will be very soft, but otherwise delicious. Let mw know how it turns out . Allow to cool and thicken slightly before using on cake.***. I just recommend chilling the cake first so that the frosting is firm. Looking forward to trying this recipe! The cake can be baked in 2 ... immediately until ready to serve (up to 2 days). I surly think my mom would love it. I was going to flood the top, but as I was doing my research I came across the spoon technique. Thanks for the feedback, Estelle! Yes, that will work as well. What would you suggest that I use as alternative and what ratio? So happy to hear that! Any suggestions?? And it would be amazing with the Baileys buttercream!! Mine is pretty runny, currently letting it set up in the fridge. 1. Also I plan on using 2 8″ pans will I need to alter the recipe at all? Anyway Can i remove buttermilk from this choco cake recipes? Ooops! Also, I will be making cake layers 2 days in advance, how should i store them in fridge? I’d like to make this as two 9-inch layers. I hope you like it , Hi Olivia! Hi Amelia! I need to try and find those here. Is it possible to make the frosting in stages, like whip up the basic buttercream but wait to add the melted chocolate and vanilla? I’ll check back and let you know! Does this sound reasonable? You could add 2 Tbsp of espresso powder (make sure it’s instant) if you want a stronger coffee flavour. I’m keen to find out if a coffee syrup can be used for the cake layers? Lovely and tempting! Thank you, Liv! i’m planning to make this cake but with your baileys buttercream instead! I used a teaspoon to drip it along the sides and then filled in the top. Let me know how it turns out!! Hi , i really want to try this cake..but its quite hard for me to find buttermilk in here . Finely chop chocolate and place into a bowl. Perfect cake paired with the perfect chocolate ganache drizzle! What if I wanted to turn these into cupcakes? You will use whole wheat pastry flour to replace some of the regular flour, combine with all-purpose flour t give you the right balance of tenderness and goodness. Hi Hiba! Very easy cake to make moist and YUMMY! I’m also going to put some toffee crunch in the cake and between the layers and I am going to pipe some flowers on top so I will make a bit more buttercream. This cake is so delicious and moist but I added WAY more instant coffee than called for and it added a barely-there mocha flavor. Regarding the dome in the center, check out my post here to see how I make sure my cakes always bake up flat :). Can you clarify? I’ve made pound cake pourable ganache before, and they stay glossy for a few hours, but for the rest of the life of the cake, they look sad. perfect. Chill for 20mins. Haha no worries!! Since it’s your first time making a Swiss meringue, I would stick with the recipe as is so you know what it should be like . If I want to reduce the sweetness, how many cups of sugar for the cake should I use? I actually never make actual coffee with espresso powder myself. Do you think it ould work if I multiply your receipe by 4? It sounds to me like maybe your baking soda and/or baking powder was expired? I didn’t pipe on this one because I wanted to keep it simple. Yes, you can cover it with fondant but be sure to chill the cake first so the frosting is firm. so it will help us more. Made it…..ate it……LOVED It! I am so happy to hear that you both loved it!! The buttermilk, coffee, and brown sugar are acidic and react with the baking soda. Hi Liv, the cake recipe is spot on – very similar to my fav chocolate cake recipe. Worked great. Thanks Olivia! I wouldn’t fill the pans more than half full. Do you bake the cake for the same amount of time and at the same temperature if you’re using 8″ round pans? Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

I made a success with the fondant cake and all was left was the baby topper i made..i made two layers 10/4 and 6/4 rounds..my first time that my cake was a big hit. Maybe not the ganache but the assembly cake with buttercream ? Hi Pamela! ONCE again, thank you so much for this recipe and making it so detailed and simple instructions. Even more delicious this morning for breakfast! xx. The chocolate and espresso will give the frosting a brown tint like you see in the photos so adding color could create a mucky hue. And will the buttercream work with a bag to swirl on the cupcakes? Converting pan sizes is always tricky. Thanks for your feedback!! No, you must use instant coffee that dissolves completely in water. This cake looks crummy. With enough water to dissolve it. I’m glad everyone loved it, that’s the most important part :). Hi Everything was so easy to make. Start checking them at about 15mins or so. Hi Sandy! Hi Carrie! I was worried that the ganache would harden quickly on the cold cake, but I had plenty of time to work with it. So glad you liked it, it’s definitely a fave! Hi Kate! Hi Emily! For the cake layers, I used my very favourite Chocolate Cake recipe modified slightly for the 6″ pans and I used hot coffee instead of hot water in the cake batter. I had to patch some areas here and there, so it took a while to get it perfect. Does it get any better? The cake will be good for 2-3 days in the fridge. Hey really keen to try this out I was wondering if you could tell me the cocoa % in the dark chocolate for the frosting? Hi, I want to make this cake in 3 x 8 inch pans. Thank you! Iced with coffee frosting from this site and it was amazing! I’ve made it 3-4 times and it’s turned out perfectly each time.

Please let me know what other recipes you end up trying! And thanks :). I have three 9inch pan with 2inch height. Oh! I’m glad it turned out for you . … It took me almost an hour… what an ordeal haha. Yes, this should be fine. It was super delicious and the coffee/chocolate combo is the best! If it’s spreadable like margarine, I’m afraid it won’t turn out exactly as it should. It is turning out amazing!! Usually chilling for 20mins and rewhipping fixes this. Thank you.. Oh my god! This cake is especially moist so I think you’ll be fine! :-p Stir to combine. Hi! I bake it in 2 8” pan but it’s only 1-1 1/2 thick after baking. Can we do that? I cut a slice of this cake with the intention of photographing it, tasting it so I could review it, then giving the rest of it to Hubs for dessert, but it didn't work out that way. Hi i wanted to make this as a birthday cake for my friend do you think I can make it ahead?Like 2 days before her bday?Would it affect the taste or the moisture if I let it sit at the fridge for 2 days? It has more height as well. Stir gently with a spatula until combined and smooth. Can I cover this with fondant? You could double the recipe and try it in two 9″. I really want a slice right now! That will be fine. A showstopper of a cake. Hi Olivia, If so, that should work fine! The cooking time may vary slightly but not crazy +/- 5 mins or so I’d imagine.

Nutrient information is not available for all ingredients. The cake is moist. Half of the recipe will work for one 8″ pan. Not too sweet, slight coffee taste that wasn’t overpowering. I tried 3 of ur cakes this is my favourite family love tiramisu cake too… and I really don’t no how u come up with such awesome recipes… I love the mocha butter cream how long can we keep it? I would recommend doubling the recipe and using three 22cm tins. Thanks for sharing. Oh my gosh! I eat that frosting with a spoon . Hi Stefanie! Here’s a site I use as a guideline: http://www.joyofbaking.com/PanSizes.html I hope that helps! Heres the cake! I use Dutch process, but any cocoa would work fine. I can’t wait to see yours! Would you have any ideas on this? If your coffee powder is very fine, then you don’t need to dissolve it with water (I didn’t dissolve mine). . Be sure to scrape the bottom of your mixer the method of adding all dry and then all liquid tends to make the dry stuff stick onto the bottom. Thanks. I’m so happy to hear you both loved it Thanks for the feedback! Also, my cake was chilled so the frosting was cold when I poured the ganache on, that helped to set it.

Make sure to weigh or spoon and level when measuring the flour.
