When I use instant espresso powder for cakes and baking, I always add it dry, UNLESS the recipe specifically says to mix it with liquid, or calls for hot strong coffee, etc.

I would whisk it in with the liquid ingredients (cup of water) until dissolved. That way the flavor is throughout the cake. Instant coffee granules are not as fine as expresso powder.

It probably makes no difference, but I just can't bring myself to put it in dry. I dissolve it in whatever liquid I'm using. icon_smile.gif
