My Yummy Hot Expresso Cakes

Norma DeRemer


My girlfriend sent me this recipe knowing how much I like to bake. I changed a few ingredients to make it mine. I don't have an Espresso Machine so I went to our local coffee shop and bought a large expresso coffee and brought it home to use in this recipe. I forgot to pick up some coffee sugar crystals so I used nuts instead. My husband and I love the flavor of this cake.. I took the leftover cake pieces and packaged them for another day. I'll just spoon into a bowl and add sauce. Just enough for the two of us. This is the picture she sent me and I forgot to take a picture. Next time I will.
