This is one of my favorite cakes to make to have with an espresso or a regular cup of coffee. It is so moist and flavorful, easy to make and delicious. This recipe is a combination of a recipe I found in a magazine and my own additions. Hope you will give it a try and enjoy it as much as my
family does.This recipe makes two cakes and will serve 16 people. You can half the recipe or if you want only one cake you can freeze one. It stores very well. Thaw it at room temperature when you want to serve it.
