I thought I already had a good recipe for mocha cake, but that is a more subtle milk-chocolate version. This one is dark, rich, intense, with a double shot of mocha: from coffee in the cake as well as in the frosting. And the frosting is, hands down, one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing.
Beware. It is the kind of cake that reaches deep into the feminine psyche and promises to solve every problem and heal every hurt. I can only assume it is *slightly exaggerating… On the other hand, will it hurt to try, just in case?
Like I said, caution and accountability may be needed.
The only reason I’m sharing this is because if you knew there was a cake like this in the world, I would want you to tell me. Also it will save me the time I’d spend sharing it individually with everyone after last night’s snack. Grin.
The recipe is here. Gina has shared many tasty recipes that have joined our family’s list of go-to dishes. This one, you might say, takes the cake.
