Recipes: The Coffee Cake that Brews Itself

I am looking to try other recipes so feel free to add your recipe to my collection. It will enable me to try things created all over the world, thanks for sharing, cheers.

To begin with here is one of mine:

20 servings, 1 hour 20 minutes (15 min prep, 1 hr 5 min cooking)

This cake is not for the faint of heart. My friends and I
created this durring an all-night party where we wanted to stay up. It gets stronger in the fridge, so watch out. The Grounds add a subtle crunch.

1 chocolate cake
2 cups strong coffee
Eggs, as indicated on the box
Oil, as indicated on the box
1/4 cup dry coffee grounds
1 tablespoon butter or shortening
1 can sour cream frosting

1. Preheat the oven.
2. Grease pan and 'flour' with coffee grounds.
3. Measure out coffee in the amount of water indicated on the
4. Save the rest of the coffee for later.
5. Prepare cake as per box instructions but substitute Coffee
for Water.
6. Bake.
7. While cake cools warm frosting and mix with the remaining
coffee, but don't make it too runny.
8. Frost cake.
9. Refrigerate over night.

May the Lord bless you and keep you
