My favorite Cake baking adventure time is back again ! This time I am baking a Dark Chocolate-Coffee cake. Friends are an integral part of our lives. A cake is incomplete without icing. So is the life without friends. This one is for my special friends Rupa and Aditya and their adorable daughter Smera who joined us for a wonderful evening at our place.

This cake is dark, moist, rich and incredibly decadent. The Nescafe instant coffee I used blended amazingly well with Hershey’s cocoa to create the most intense and delicious chocolate cake anyone could hardly resist.

Preparartion Time: 10 Mins
