Cafe Latte's Turtle Cake


Carole F Recipe

I found this recipe in 2005 Midwest Living magazine. It has been on Cafe Latte's Menu since 1985...Decadent, to say the least!

Cafe Latte's is located in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

PLEASE read this NOTE: So many have questioned on the Coffee in this recipe...many of you don't like coffee. It can be omitted by using just water, BUT..just so you know, you do not taste the coffee in this cake at all..coffee is only added because it enhances the chocolate cake and give it a very RICH chocolate flavor, it does not affect the taste at all. Do what you think is best for your situation, coffee or not...Enjoy this decadant cake!!
