Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour 2 8" round pans according to package directions.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, 2 tbsp. coffee powder, 1 egg, ¼ cup cake mix. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Blend together remaining cake mix, water, oil and 2 eggs in a large bowl at low speed until moistened. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Divide batter into two 8" round pans. Dollop cream cheese mixture on top of batter by heaping tablespoonfuls. Swirl into batter using a knife or spatula.
  4. Bake and cool according to package directions.
  5. Mix remaining tbsp. of coffee powder into frosting. Blend completely before frosting top and sides of cake. Garnish cake by sifting cocoa powder over top and decorating with chocolate shavings, if desired.
  6. To make chocolate shavings, pull a vegetable peeler over the surface of a block of room-temperature milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate. Use even, steady strokes to make thin curls of chocolate. Gently transfer curls to cake using a toothpick or skewer.

Healthy Substitute

Healthy Substitute

When baking a vanilla cake or cupcake, replace the oil with the apple sauce. Use the same amount as directed in the recipe. It does not give off any apple flavor to your vanilla cupcakes.

Before baking cake dust lightly flour on the pan. Make sure there are no "lumps" in the flour or it will turn out wrong.
