It's My Birthday!!

It's my birthday. Even though I'm only 24, I feel like I'm at the age where I have to think about how old I am when someone asks me. Yep, it's pretty pathetic. But it's all made up by the fact I get to have my all time favorite cake. I've been having this cake every year for the past 14 years. I don't get tired of it. Ever. The best part of this cake is the frosting. It is to DIE for! My sister and I fight over the beaters and the bowl and the spoon.

This cake is extremely easy to make. (Shhh ... It's made from a box mix.) For the cake itself, you will need a box of your favorite devil's food cake mix. Instead of using the amount of water it calls for, you will need the same amount of double strength coffee. Mix and bake according to the package directions. When you make the coffee, make sure you brew enough for both the cake and the frosting (it has coffee in it too!!).

Chocolate Coffee Cake with Coffee Frosting

1 box Duncan Hines Devils Food Cake Mix
1 cup Double Strength Coffee
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
3 Large Eggs

Coffee Frosting
3 cups Confectioners Sugar
5 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
4 tbsp Double Strength Coffee
1 tsp Vanilla

  1. Prepare cake according to package directions. (Ingredients above are as listed on the cakemix box). Instead of using water, use double strength coffee. Divide the batter into 2 round cake pan. Bake as directed, until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  2. For the frosting, combine the ingredients. Mix until smooth.
