I LOVE this recipe and have a cake for a starbucks coffee lover, I was wondering can i sub the water for coffee? Or How would you do it? I am also going to change this to a chocolate cake instead of the white chocolate. Any ideas or recipes for a good espresso cake?



White Chocolate Sour Cream cake
Ingredients
2 boxes of white cake mix (Pillsbury is my choice)
2 cups AP flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 box of jello white chocolate pudding mix powder sugar free
6 eggs or 8 egg whites
2 cups sour cream
4 tbsp oil
3 cups water
2 tsp vanilla
Instructions
Mix all ingredients well with electric mixer. Pour in prepared pans and bake at 325 until toothpick comes out clean when poked in center of cake. Can yield 2- 10 in round and 2- 6 in round if filled 1/2 full of batter.

I've subbed coffee for water with cake mixes many of times. That's the bonus of cake mixes they are forgiving.

With a chocolate cake, the coffee will enhance the chocolate taste, but you may not get a strong coffee flavor.

I'd brew some strong coffee or expresso and sub it for all the water called for. You can also add some instant expresso powder for more of a boost of coffee flavor.
