This rich and delicious cake not only holds up for days--it gets even better. Baked with both instant powdered and brewed espresso, it boasts subtle coffee flavor. Sour cream in the batter ensures a moist texture and enhances taste.

    I'm new to baking and this is the most popular thing I have made yet. I took it to the office and it was gone in a flash. It was soo moist and velvety. The espresso adds a touch of adult flavor and complexity. This is one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted. One thing I have learned so far is to use a quality bundt pan. If you use a cheap, thin one, it will cook unevenly and burn. I found a gorgeous, heavy duty bundt pan from an estate sale and now all my cakes are moist and delicious.

    I haven't made this yet but it sounds delicious. I was wondering why butter wasn't listed on the ingredients list.

    Used 15 dollars worth of ingredients but my "standard" bundt pan was obviously too small. The batter overflowed and burned ( thank goidness I baked on a sheet tray) and took 1 hour plus 40 minutes to cook. Totally a waste of time and ingredients unless you are Martha and have huge potential nconcentional bundt pans and unlimitd ingreadients ar yr dispiasal.

    Lovely cake but I'm not sure what the point of the 'filling' is. It just adds an unpleasantly gritty, bitter stripe through the cake. I will definitely make it again but without the filling. Recipe worked perfectly, baking time was spot on (I'm in the UK and baked it at 160 C)

    Turned out perfectly, altho I did have to bake it 75 minutes. I REALLY liked the idea of preparing the bundt pan not only with butter, but with butter mixed with cocoa!
