This cake is really rich and delicious. It is made with coffee, vanilla and cocoa, along with flour, eggs and other typical cake ingredients. You can finish this cake however you wish, frosting or icing it with chocolate ganache or even making different layers and sandwiching them together with a chocolate filling. You can also serve it plain, perhaps with some whipped cream and strawberries and raspberries as your garnish. Chocolate cake goes well with all kinds of other flavors. We like to add chopped walnuts as well, for some decadent crunch.
