Just wondering if anyone has tried MacsMom's Chocolate WASC. My question is when adding the coffee is it liquid, instant crystals, or coffee grounds. I know it sounds like a silly question, I'm thinking liquid but if I'm wrong I don't have the time to waste on the mistake. The cake is for my son's birthday on Wed, I work full time and won't have a day off until the day of his party.
Thanks for any help
I'm sure it should be liquid, 2 cups of instant coffee is like dumping a whole can of coffee into the batter.
I use liquid coffee left over from the morning of. I love this wasc version...it's so chocolatey and moist!
I mix up some instant in hot water to make the amount needed.
yup instant. I mix it with a little hot water to make sure it disolves properly then with cold water to get it to room temperature. It is very chocolatey and delicious.
I was wondering if this cake can be carved? I need a chocolate cake that can be carved into a pirate ship. I've searched and have not found one yet.
This is one of our favorite cakes! It is extra moist though so for carving you might want to cut back on the sure by 1/4 cup or so to firm it up a bit more.
I also make instant coffee, but I've never bothered bringing it back down to room temperature. I'm going to be honest, I hated chocolate cake until I made this one! Everyone loves it and says it is the best chocolate cake they've had. It is the only recipe I will use, and I have never had any trouble carving it or stacking it.
I should mention that I usually carve partially frozen though. That makes it much easier to carve!
i LOVE this cake.. I made it for the first time last week and i added chocolate pudding with reese in it for the filling mmmmmm so good.. Very moist cake not good for craving... I even had alittle time hard time putting the buttercream but it was all worth it.. I didnt add the coffee just cuz i didnt have any at home but it still came out super good.. def will make it again..
I think she mentioned before that if you are doing a carved cake, you should leave out the pudding. The flavor is great, though!
Where can I find this recipe? I've looked and looked and have not been able to find it. Thanks.

Here is the *Original* WASC recipe. All you have to do is use strong brewed coffee as the liquid. It makes a *GREAT!* cake w/o lots of extra ingredients. Give it a try I know you'll love it.
Thanks for the recipes. I can't wait to try them!
