Lisa's Story

When my mother passed away, a close family friend made us two wonderful cakes. One was the Kentucky Apple cake, which was a hit with the big guys, and the other was this moist, dense chocolate cake, which was a hit with my three sons and their friends. My twin boys requested this for their birthday with one stipulation - they each wanted their own cake, just for them! Oh, and don't be thrown off by the inclusion of coffee in the recipe. You would never know it's there. Matter of fact, if my boys knew it was in there, they would freak out since they hate coffee!

My son and I found this recipe on Pinterest several years ago. After realizing we had all of the ingredients on-hand, we made it that day...it is by far the best cake recipe. It is the cake that everyone requests now for their birthday or other special occasion cake.

Absolutely the best chocolate cake recipe, and I think I've tried just about all of them. The first time I made this my husband and I ate the entire 2 layer frosted cake in about 2 days. Don't judge! It is that good. :-)
