Awww your welcome but I used to make the chocolate version all wrong .. by just subbing the chocolate cake AND I didn't take out the almond flavor... THEN I myself was enlightened on how it was supposed to be LOL... and it is the best...

I'd like to hug the creator of this recipe myself icon_smile.gif

But I'm glad I helped someone like myself get out of the chocolate rut.. it is DELICIOUS icon_smile.gif

Coffee makes the biggest difference in the world in this recipe icon_smile.gif

Christi, when you say use coffee for all of the liquid are you omitting the vanilla and almond? icon_redface.gif sorry, I'm kind of slow sometimes icon_wink.gif

When you add the coffee, it should be plain, black, right? Does it matter if it's instant? Should it be strong?

I've not been happy with the DH dark fudge cake and I don't like any of the other chocolate flavors so I'll have to try this. Thanks!

YOu could still just use water instead of coffee, but the coffee really enhances the chocolate flavor. I haven't tried this particular recipe yet, but I always use dark coffee when making chocolate icing, and I have a chocolate cookie recipe that's out of this world using coffee as the liquid. I'm not even sure you'd be able to tell it's coffee with the amount of liquid in this recipe; all I know is that the coffee super enhances the chocolate flavor.

When I made this, I used instant coffee...1-1/4 tsp. with 1-1/3 cups of hot water for one box of cake mix (Pillsbury w/ 1 cup of pudding already in the mix). There was no trace of coffee flavor and the cake was delicious...I think I'll try 1-1/2 tsp. next time.

I had 2 layers of chocolate with one layer of the (white) WASC in between...that was a big hit, having both the white and dark in the same cake.

hi.. just want to ask ( sorry if it sounds duh!) when u say sub water with coffee, does that mean coffee granules of equal measurement or coffee made with water as in black coffee??

Either or.

When I have cooled coffee in the pot, I use that. When I don't, I use granules. It's your choice. Just don't use hot coffee. icon_smile.gif

I have a question about this. this may be totally dumb, but when you sub the coffee for the liquid, do you take out the oil too?
Also, is it suitable to make cupcakes with? I'm going to make the starbucks cup cupcakes and was wondering if a WASC will be too dense? I'm doing half with choc and half reg WASC if it's suitable. Thanks!

It's fine for cupcakes, and you can't omit the oil by adding coffee. Coffee makes chocolate taste better... The oil is a separate part of the recipe icon_smile.gif
