Coffee Infused Chocolate Cake

coffee infused chocolate cake

I love chocolate and I love coffee so what could be better than mixing the two together? This coffee infused chocolate cake with fudge frosting is absolutely to die for! The cake is moist and rich with a nice hint of my favorite coffee and the fudge frosting is thick and creamy. Coffee infused chocolate cake is the kind of cake you make when you have company coming over that you want to wow!

I made this cake for a family event a few days ago and everyone raved about how good it was! I had several people ask for the recipe already. My family has said I have to make this for every family function. It felt great watching people enjoy something I made! I think the touch of coffee flavor really elevates the chocolate flavorsd which is why this is such a hit.
