I tried the recipe tonight. It was great! I didn't have any buttermilk, so I jus made some sour milk by adding a little vinegar to sweet milk.

I made this while my other half was out running an errand. I didn't tell her it had coffee in it (she detests coffee). When I finally served it, she ate it. I asked her if she liked it, and she said she did. I looked at my MIL and asked, "Do you want to tell her, or should I?" PeppA started hounding me about it, until a couple minutes later, she said, "Did you put coffee in it?!?!?!" I snickered. She made a beeline for the bathroom and locked the door. Yup, she yacked it back up.

Honestly, if I had waited for several hours, and then told her, she probably would have used me for a punching bag. If I had waited until tomorrow, she would probably have used me for target practice. I think it's all up in her head about not liking coffee.

At least now, all I have to do is make something with coffee in it, and I'll know that she'll leave it alone.

Golly darn, Allen. I couldn't have asked for a better endorsement of this cake. Can't wait to recommend it to others.

Sorry she didn't (?) like it. But, more, how did you like it? (Great is okay.) I would be interested. I know you got it ALL to yourself, but was that your intention?

It was great. I've got to make it again, preferably with the buttermilk. I only got three pieces (out of twelve). The kids all got a piece, MIL got at least two pieces, and PeppA got once (that made a reappearance). There was one piece that was MIA when I got up the next morning. I'm assuming either MIL or the oldest boy got it. I know my MIL was up at 0500 for a breathing treatment, so she might have "helped herself". She definitely has a sweet tooth.

Don't GET me started!

I may have to post a recipe I have for Chocolate Pudding Cake. The resulting product is like a large brownie floating over it's own hot fudge sauce. Can't remember if it gets Kahlua or not.

Katie....
I am going to use this for legogirls' birthday party cake on Saturday...
:)
but I'm turning it into Black Forest and putting cherry pie filling between to layers of it.....
will my filling need to be thickened a bit or will this be a soft enough cake that the cherries wont squish out when I slice it?
Now to find a sinful chocolate frosting......

cake is served at 3 if you can't stand the drooling folks...
:)

Suz
this is a wonderful moist cake..We love it and serve it with just powdered sugar on top, if we want to be fancy we put a dollop of whipped cream...You can't lose with this cake.
