      I bet this is delicious! How could it be otherwise with chocolate AND Expresso frosting (glaze)?

      I remember that you had so many delicious recipes and I'm so glad they are now all available to people who want to try them!

      This sounds delicious! I do a similar recipe for Kona Mocha Torte, accept it has a fluffy orange and dark chocolate frosting in the middle and dark mocha frosting on the outside (what can I say I'm definitely a frosting person). Thanks for sharing, I'm definitely going to try this one :)

      The list of ingredients for this chocolate cake looks great, I love the fact that it doesn´t have tons of butter in it (which is the case of other recipes I´ve seen just a few minutes ago).
