Coffee Cream Cake

How about a little cream with your coffee? A simple, what I call ” anyday” cake is drenched with coffee flavor and topped with fluffy buttercream and dark chocolate shavings – a simple little jewel snack cake.


This cake is based on a basic 1-2-3 yellow cake recipe, so it is easy to prepare.  Add unsweetened cocoa powder, about 1 tablespoon, along with the espresso if you would like to make a mocha cake or leave out the espresso powder for a simple yellow cake.

To soften butter, remove from the refrigerator 1 hour prior to using.

Make sure to use an extra large egg.

I use an electric hand mixer for the cake and the frosting, no need for a stand mixer.

Look for instant espresso in most large markets or use dried instant coffee.

This simple cake, from my collection of “anyday” recipes, is diminutive at a single layer, perfect for a late afternoon snack and of course great with a cup of coffee.

As always, enjoy. B
