I recommend one of the following coffees for this recipe: Yemen Mocha, Mexico Bourbon de Coatepec, or, Java Blawan Washed.

Garnish before serving with a chocolate covered coffee bean and chocolate syrup if desired. Return leftovers to the freezer.




Quick & Easy Mocha Cake

Serves 10 to 12 depending on the thickness of the slices.

Ingredients

1 Pillsbury or other Moist Cake mix (the kind with pudding in the mix) Milk Chocolate or German Chocolate. In place of the water called for in the cake, use cool or cold double strength coffee to which 2 tablespoons of sugar have been added.

Instructions

Instead of beating only at low to medium speed with the mixer, use low speed to blend the ingredients and then, using high speed, beat the batter for 3 to 5 minutes till it is fairly fluffy. Bake as directed on the package (usually 350 ) in a bundt cake pan. Cool well and use the following frosting recipe

Turn cake out on a cake plate and, using a piece of heavy thread or a knife cleanly slice horizontally thru the cake. Carefully remove top and lay aside. Ice the cut top of the bottom layer and replace the top. Ice the cake with the rest of the icing making decorative swirls in the icing with a table knife.

Chocolate Covered Coffee Dreams

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

I recommend the following coffees for this recipe: 62 Continental, Indio Noir, or Turkish Blend.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups dark brown sugar. 1/4 cup corn syrup. 1/4 teaspoon salt. 1/2 cup triple strength coffee. Whites of 4 large eggs. 1 cup chopped nuts ( If desired; we suggest Pecans, Macadamias, Walnuts, or Black Walnuts.) 3 to 5 lbs Melting Chocolate (your choice of dark, milk, or white chocolate. Please check our Chocolate page for several fine melting chocolates. )

Instructions

Butter the sides of a heavy 2 qt saucepan. Put the sugar, corn syrup, salt and coffee in it and cook on high stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. Cook, to a hard ball stage (260) without stirring. Remove from heat. Working quickly, (use a very large, chilled glass or metal bowl for the egg whites) beat the egg whites till stiff peaks form. Pour the hot syrup in a thin stream over the beaten egg whites while beating on high speed with the mixer.Continue beating mixture at high speed until it forms soft peaks and begins to lose it's gloss. Add the nuts and beat thoroughly for 5 more minutes. Allow to cool slightly, cover the bowl, then put in the freezer to chill. In the top of a double boiler, slowly heat the melting chocolate stirring constantly until it is thoroughly melted. Put waxed paper on several cookie sheets. Remove the bowl from the freezer and, with a teaspoon, drop a heaping teaspoon full of the cold mixture in the melted chocolate.(Don't spear the candy... scoop it carefully from the chocolate!) Working quickly, use two forks to remove the dipped candy from the chocolate and place on the waxed paper. Repeat the process until all the mixture is gone. Pour the remaining dipping chocolate in a buttered pie pan to cool. It can be reheated... Allow the candies to cool. The chocolate coating on the dipped candies will harden as it cools. Store in a covered container in a cool place or in the refrigerator if desired.
