Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

It is a take off of the King Aruthru Depression era cake. It may even be the same reicipe(except with their flour) and the cake was also 1/2 this size so 1/2 the ingredients were used. Expresso powder was used and coffee, water, milk or rum were the different inspirations for the final liquid. Look it up on their website.

I was skeptical about this recipe as I have never had luck with making cake from scratch as well as making it with coffee. However I was quite pleased with this. It was flavourful and moist. I frosted it with a chocolate buttercream frosting. This is one I will make again and again.
