Coffee cake is a classic and after you try this recipe, you'll crave this timeless dish again and again. It can be frozen and served with coffee or hot chocolate as part of breakfast, or you can change it up and serve with a scoop of ice cream for dessert. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Made this today without any modifications. Used full fat sour cream. Found that cake was moist but lacking a bit in flavor. Wouldn't make it again.

      Cake was dry had no flavor. Could not taste the chocolate or the coffee. I make a almond flavor glaze & topped that was nuts that made the cake edible. Would not make again.

    Have made this cake a few times and it can come out dry if over baked. I made it yesterday but only put it in the oven for 40 mins and came out great. I also didn't have any instant espresso so I used cinnamon and a bit of salt and it gave the cake a nice flavour. Was a big hit at mothers group.

    the taste and texture of this recipe were completely off. it was too salty, dry and bitter. i was actually embarrassed to serve it to my guests.

    I thought the cake came out dry and not to much flavor.

    i really like this cake. I substituted all the sourc cream with Fage 0% fat greek yogurt-which worked perfectly. The cocoa/instant coffee filling adds great flavor. Mine baked in 45 minutes. Will be making this again!

    Made this for Easter brunch and thought it was very dry and flavorless! Would not recommend!

    I made this! It turned out great! Next time I would like to try Greek yogurt in place of sour cream! What do do you think?

    Would light sour cream work? It would save me a trip to the store!
