Cook's Notes

A little more cream is all you need to soften up the topping if it starts to look curdled while you're whisking.

    This cake was moist, delicious, and easy to make. I will be making this for dessert for my next dinner party.

      You've baked two cake pans - are you going to mention what to do with the second one? Is it just to have a second one, like for the freezer or did you intend to make layer cake? That is a lot of whipped cream, probably could support another layer. Surprised you do not state your intentions

    Really easy, really good! Preparing this recipe was a cinch; I had no problem with the espresso powder when I mixed it with the dry ingredients. I used Penzey's pie spice, which is a bit more complex than "pie spice." It was a hit with my guests. I think that a dusting of powdered sugar in lieu of whipped cream would dress up the top.

    This cake was so so easy and fast to make. Basically like making muffins and then just whipping cream. Stunning and delicious fall and winter dessert.

    Add the espresso powder to the wet ingredients. I used an instant espresso coffee that had larger granules and they did not dissolve in the dry ingredients. My cake had small dark flecks. Next time I also may use slightly less espresso. It was very easy to make and very moist.
