Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans, or spray with baking spray with flour. Dissolve 1 tablespoon coffee in 1 1/4 cups water. Make cake batter as directed on box, using coffee mixture in place of the water. Bake and cool as directed.

Frost side and top of cake with frosting. Pipe remaining whipped topping mixture around top of cake. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until chilled. Garnish top of cake with espresso beans.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If the cake is served just after chilling, the espresso flavor will be mild. The flavor develops more fully as it continues to chill, and if served the next day, the flavor will be stronger.
