Mocha cake

My cake of choice, I always make it (or, if I'm really lucky, convince my Mom to make it :) ) for my birthday. A fantastic way to make a cake mix taste superb.


Mocha Cake

1 package white cake mix (13 x 9 pan size)
1 cup strongly brewed coffee, room temperature
4 egg whites
1 cup milk chocolate chips, or ½ cup milk chocolate shavings 
2 tablespoons milk chocolate shavings (for garnish, optional)
Coffee or Chocolate frosting (your preference; for a coffee butter frosting recipe, click here)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a Bundt cake pan (may also be prepared as two 8 or 9 inch cakes or one 13 x 9 inch cake). Beat eggs until fluffy. Mix cake mix, eggs and coffee thoroughly. Add milk chocolate chips or chocolate shavings, as desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Remove cake from pan. Cool completely before frosting. Garnish frosting with chocolate pieces, if desired.
After cake has been frosted, sprinkle remaining chocolate shavings on top of cake. Serve.

Begin by whipping the egg whites until they're nice and fluffy.

Add the cake mix.

And coffee.

Now add either 1 cup of milk chocolate chips, or...

1/2 cup diced milk chocolate, as you prefer/have on hand.


Spread the cake mix in a prepared cake pan.

Bake until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. The cake should be a golden brown color.

Set on a wire rack to cool.

When completely cool, frost and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons chocolate pieces if desired.
