Almond Mocha Cake

If you are looking for a dense, moist, chocolate cake
full of flavor then this is the cake for you.

1/2 cup chopped almonds
1-1/2 cups strong coffee
1/2 cup margarine
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
2 tsp almond extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
Icing sugar

Heat oven to 325F.
Generously grease a 12-cup Bundt pan.
Gently press almonds in bottom and half way up
sides of greased pan.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat
combine coffee, margarine and chocolate chips
until mixture is smooth, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in sugar & almond flavoring.
Place in large bowl and cool for 5 minutes.
At low speed, gradually blend flour and baking soda
into chocolate mixture until moistened.
Add vanilla and eggs;
beat at medium speed until just blended.

Pour into greased and nut-lined pan.
Bake at 325F for 60-70 minutes
or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 

Cool upright in plan 25 minutes;
Invert onto serving plate.
Cool completely.

Sprinkle with Icing sugar & enjoy!

  1. Oh, that looks awesome! Would you believe that I have NEVER owed or baked in a BUNDT pan? I see so many wonderful cake recipes using them, but I tend to just bake in my regular square or round pans. It works, but bundts are fun!

    1. Thanks Jessy! I love my Bundt pan - I think it makes a cake look interesting :) You can often find them at garage sales for really cheap!

  2. Thanks for the recipe. I have a collection of bundt pans in a post I recently shared. If you like you can go check it out, as I can see you like them. http://fabbysliving.blogspot.com/2016/02/a-romantic-valentines-setting.html

    1. Hope you have a chance to give the recipe a try :)

  3. Alana, this does look so moist and gooey! Can you believe that I don't care for chocolate cake? Yup, I am a white cake girl! :) Still, I couldn't resist a taste.
