It is no secret that I don't care for coffee-flavored food. Sure, I enjoy my cup of coffee in the morning, but this has become a recent development. I remember when I first got married that I couldn't stand the smell of Nathan's coffee in the morning. I think what changed my mind is the fact that I now have two children and wake up at 430 in the morning to work out before they wake up. I NEED that caffeine fix!
With that being said, I really wanted to try this bundt cake. It sounded fantastic! The dark layer calls for espresso powder and 1/4 cup of coffee. I substituted 1/4 cup water and 1 TBSP cocoa powder. Mmmmm... a walnutty vanilla & chocolate swirled cake. Delicious!
I loved this cake and will definately make it again! Plus, after making this, I have decided that I really need to buy more bundt pans. There are so many great ones out there!
