Hi
Just wondering if this frosts well? I'm wanting to make a dinosaur cake with mousseline buttercream and this recipe sounds divine, but i'm not sure it would hold well?

This cake is wonderful with just a lite dusting of powdered sugar. It is great with frosting but stands on it's own without..My family loves it..It's dark, rich, moist and and enjoyable.

I have some espresso powdered coffee, I use that in hot water, it's strong and gives a boost to a wonderful cake.

I saved some hazelnut coffee from breakfast this weekend and I'm going to heat it up in the microwave until it's steaming hot, then use it in the recipe. I've done that many times with many other different kinds of coffee. It's my recipe anyway, so...enjoy!!

I've even cut the recipe in half and baked it in an 8- x 8-inch pan. Comes out great.
I did not need to know that this cake comes out great in an 8 x 8 inch pan. Sometimes you can have too much good information!! LOL

I just put two of the cakes in the oven. Well, actually divided the batter equally between two 8-inch square pans. I'm going to save one for me and take the other one to my brother's house for supper tonight. He's been wifeless the last several days and we're going to grill out together tonight. He grew up enjoying the cake and I thought it would be a fun thing to bring for dessert.

Sure smells good here right now.
