Enjoy this moist, rich dark chocolate cake for a special celebration. Made with a combination of dark chocolate and bittersweet cocoa powder, the batter is sprinkled with granulated and brown sugar for sweetness. Then, cocoa is sifted on its surface and coffee is poured on top. After baking for an hour, the cake is covered with foil and returned to the oven until it's cooked through. It's an unusual technique with decadent results.

The best thing about this cake is the coffee and chocolate combination. I was reminded of a mocha frappe. When I poured the coffee onto the cake, however, I poured too quickly and washed away some of the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Next time I will pour a little more carefully. Also the recipe calls for using actual vanilla beans, but vanilla extract will provide the flavor you need if you do not want to buy another ingredient.
