    This bundt great. The batter was thinner than I was expecting but it didn’t matter, cake turned out perfect. x

    Love this recipe! I have made this recipe several times in my 6 cup bundt pan & it always turns perfect.

    I’ve made this cake twice using a Nordic Ware loaf pan and the snowflake pan. It came out beautifully in the snowflake pan and I simply dusted it with sparkly sanding sugar, it’s plenty sweet without frosting. It is so delicious, already getting requests for it. Perfect amounts of spices, flavoring, sugar and chocolate, nothing overwhelming the flavor, all complimenting each other. Wonderful recipe. I used a generous spray of Wilton Bake Easy and dusted with cocoa although I usually don’t dust with anything. The spray is great, every one of my cakes plop out perfectly after I let them cool and rest in the pan for a half hour.

    This cake was delicious, reminded me a bit of Italian spice cookies. I actually halved the recipe and made it in the pumpkin loaf pan, didn’t frost the top to preserve the cake pan detail, just piped a bit of canned frosting around the perimeter and everyone thought it was delicious. Definitely a keeper.

    I was skipping the ganache, so I wanted the flavors to really stand out against a simple vanilla glaze and ended up increasing the unsweetened chocolate to 6 oz., adding in roughly 1/2 tbsp of molasses, and skipped the cayenne altogether. Went over very well for the crowd it was baked for.

    I have made this recipe several times since seeing it in a MNHS flyer. I had a 6 cup bundt pan and couldn’t find many recipes for that size pan. It has turned out to be my favorite chocolate cake recipe. The coffee and spices make it different and so delicious. I have even made it with gluten free flour and it turned out perfect.

    I made this recipe last night. It was not too difficult but I made a mistake and added twice the amount of chocolate to the batter. It was so delicious and moist. The chocolate flavor had hints of spice that was very complimentary along with the coffee. This was a really pretty cake and a big hit with my family.

    This is a great moist chocolate cake that is easy to make. It’s the perfect balance of the chocolate, coffee and spice. Plus, you cannot got wrong with ganache. We’ll be making this again!

    I love this recipe! you can taste the chocolate and coffee just right with a nice spicy kick to it! an amazing cake, I like to call it a mexican spice cake because of the flavor.
