But OMG it was amazing. It being Ellie Krieger’s Mocha Cake with Mocha Cream Cheese Frosting from The Food You Crave. I had no doubts that this would be good. As far as I was concerned, the fact that there was coffee liqueur in the frosting was enough to convince me. Of course, EK always has a little trick and for this cake it was yogurt. The only other thing that would give away the fact that this is a light dessert is how thin the frosting is. Where come from,it would be half an inch thick.
Well, I managed to not eat all three pieces, but it was tough. I had one and a half and I desperately needed a glass of milk. This recipe made 16 servings, so I am going to be very popular at the office tomorrow.
Seriously, I cannot say enough great things about this cake. I’m a little distracted by the episode of Mad Men that’s about JFK’s death, so I almost forgot to mention the espresso.
Eat Well and Savor.
