The cake is very tender but it probably wouldn't hurt if you thickened the cherries a little.

This looks delicious.

I've never detected any coffee flavor but, as LEFSE surmised, the cake is a deep dark chocolate and wonderfully moist.

Lefse, the cake recipe I sent you also has the coffee in it but you don't taste it, it just deepens the flavour and moistens the cake. Katie, I have a TNT recipe as well but am looking forward to trying yours.

Hi,

I wanted to try this cake out but was wondering what would qualify as strong coffee :)

Thankyou!

I have some instant espresso that I mix up to make the amount you need and it works wonders..This cake is wonderful and moist all alone..One thing to remember Katie say's it is more like a liquid than a batter, I say the same so Don't panic just continue on and enjoy a delightful cake.

KATIE’S BLACK DEVIL’S FOOD CAKE


(Serves 10 to 12)




2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup cocoa
½ tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1 egg
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1 cup boiling strong coffee


Grease and flour one 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Set aside.

Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add egg, oil and milk and stir until well blended. Gently stir boiling coffee into mixture. This will make a very thin batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. Frost as desired or serve dusted with powdered sugar. Note: To make sour milk, stir 1 tablespoon lemon juice into 1 cup milk. Let stand a few minutes to allow the milk to curdle.

Enjoy!
I saw this yesterday, had all the ingredients, and decided to make it. It is very moist and delicious--can't stay out of it . I'm not a baker by any means, so my cake is not perfect, but it sure tastes good.

Now you've gone and done it! You're hooked. It's easy to just keep eating it. It freezes wonderfully, too. Glad you like it. I have some leftover coffee in the fridge that has that cake's name on it.

I've even cut the recipe in half and baked it in an 8- x 8-inch pan. Comes out great.
