I went to a Christmas party about ten years ago and first tasted this. I begged and begged for the recipe--and I finally go it. By the way, if you aren't a coffee lover, simply omit the expresso powder and water--it's still produces a yummy cake. To the plain base, I have added coconut extract, black walnut extract, and egg nog flavoring, and it always works wonderfully .
