  • Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake until top springs back when lightly touched, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Turn out onto rack and let cool completely, about 2 hours.

  • Whisk cream with confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form; dollop on top of cake and dust with espresso powder. Serve immediately.

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.
