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
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
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.
I use chocolate flavored coffee in most of my choc cake recipes...no problem.
I was pretty sure but just wanted to make sure. Thanks again!
