Do you need to put coffee in it?
Is there a substitute??

I really really cant stand coffee and can taste the smallest amount of it.

So would love to make this just without coffee, and im not very good with substituting haha.

Thanx in advance

I don't like coffee either, Aithne, but you really can't taste it in this cake, it just brings out the flavour of the chocolate. I only used 1 teaspoon of instant coffee in a cup of boiling water, but I suppose you could just use boiling water and omit the coffee entirely - the cake just wouldn't taste as rich.

I hate coffee too, and believe me, if you could taste it, I'd pick it up, but you really can't. I'd go with 1 tsp per cup. Its what gives the cake its richness...

Yum, yum, Nikki! My favourite icing is chocolate ganache...basically equal quantities of cream and dark chocolate i.e. 250g chocolate and 250ml cream, melt slowly in microwave and let it come to room temperature then pour on and put in fridge to set.


Are the measurements you've got here the right amount to ice this cake with? Or would they make a generous amount?

So in a non-fan oven at 180C for 45mins is the right amount of time?
(Just don't wanna stuff it up... am a bit of a baking novice!)


TIA!

You know, this recipe is used/bumped so often, I think it should be a sticky...

Kriss, I'm sure you could do this in the microwave, probably for around 10 minutes? I make brownies etc in the microwave and they come out great!

I finally made this cake, but made it with egg replacement so that my chocoholic child could have some. It was delicious and you didn't miss the eggs at all in it. This is now on the top of my list for her birthday cake later this month

Thanks for the suggestion, Mum2Sam, I didn't even think of adapting for microwave cooking
