Chocolate Coffee Cake Recipe

A tasty Chocolate Coffee Cake, filled with cocoa and coffee - the dream of a Chocolate lover

Gourmesso’s Chocolate” is surprisingly well mixed with the cocoa giving the chocolate cake an intense and delicious taste.

For most people, chocolate is the best therapy out there – refine your days with a piece of chocolate (or two). To make it even better, bake a mesmerizing cake and then pour a load of chocolate over it. The idea of adding coffee makes it even more exciting.

However, in order to avoid a predictable deception, you might want to invite your friends and mother-in-law. They will (like us) be enthusiastic about the following recipe.

Fun-Fact: Cinnamon has perseverance – the aromatic rods are kept cool and dry for several years.
