Mocha Fudge Cake-a coffee lovers dream, a moist cake infused with coffee and topped with a rich mocha icing.
I need to say this right off the bat. If you do not LOVE coffee, this is not the cake for you. Yes you can leave the instant coffee out of the recipe and just use the plain boiling water but that’s just a chocolate cake. Not Mocha. Mocha is chocolate infused with coffee.
Now if you ARE a chocolate-coffee lover, you have to make this cake.
Who needs a layer cake with decorative frosting (you all know how I hate to frost a cake!) This single layer cake gives such great flavor. Just the right sweetness. Lots of chocolate and coffee flavor. And it’s so easy to make. Oh, and it’s gorgeous!
The hardest part about this cake is waiting.
Waiting for the cake to cool completely. And waiting for the glaze to fully set.
You just can’t beat a pour on glaze.
I baked this in my 9 inch round cake pan from Calphalon. I love the crisp edges this cake pan gives. Not rounded. It does make a difference when you do choose to make those layer cakes!
