PS I used the All American Buttercream recipe from this site, with added coffee for a mocha taste :) That part will have butter of course.
What size tins did you use? When you say wax lining do you mean wax paper?
two 8" pans, and wax paper yup :) (i dont know why my posts come out as My2princesses, this is Tails writing this :/)
I am assuming that by using coffee it gives it a coffee flavor - can coffee be substituted by milk? Thanks~
I remember making this cake as a kid. Probably one of the first cake recipes I used :-) It's actually pretty good if memory serves me correctly.
@NJCakery: the coffee doesnt give it a coffee taste at all. It actually enhances the chocolate flavour, but just substitute for water if you want but I highly recommend the coffee :) - Tails
Hi can i use vegetable oil to replace olive oil?
@Butterscotch1: Yup, cant see why not :) - Tails
Hi, I tried and just loved this recipe. Do you have eggless recipe for venilla cake? I have been looking for sponge, what we get in stop& Shop and Bigy.
Sounds great..I have saved recipe and will try it asap! :o) If I substitute cocoa for coffee powder will it be coffee flavoured throughout and still work?!! :P Many thanks..can't wait to have a whirl at this one!! :O)
@deepa1321: no sorry, no vanilla eggless recipe :(
@BestCherryonTop: I dont think coffee powder will work the same as cocoa. You'd need a LOT of coffee and then it'd be bitter. But if you try it, let me know yea!
Does this recipe work if i need to cover it with fondant?
Does this hold up to the weight of fondant??
@tina and bakemyday: I have used it under fondant yes :) (the pink birthday cake in my gallery)
