Holy moly I am so excited to share this recipe! Coffee Lover’s Cake with Creamy Chocolate Frosting. Simply, the best. If you don’t know by now, I am a coffee-lover. Like, big time. I went 25 years without drinking or enjoying coffee/coffee flavoured things. Why? Beats me. Seriously, I have no idea. And then one day Greg told me to try coffee. And you know what? I’m converted. I love it! So, I had to recreate my new favourite cake recipe into a coffee and chocolate version.
This cake is coffee flavoured, rich and only slightly bitter, just like coffee! Its moist, sweet but definitely has a pronounced coffee flavour. The creamy chocolate frosting balances it perfectly, and I love that the cake in general isn’t sickly sweet. Its the perfect dessert for a coffee and chocolate lover.
No eggs, no problem!
The key component in making this cake super moist and hold together well is aquafaba! If you don’t know already aquafaba is the liquid you normally would drain off when you open a new can of chickpeas. Its that thick (kind of weird smelling) liquid that you want to get rid of as fast as possible. But wait!! Don’t throw it out! It makes an amazing egg substitute in baking! And some people even use it to make vegan meringue because it whips up just like egg whites.Print
