I'm pleased with the way my experimental Deaton's Chocolate Chip Cake turned out. As I mentioned in my blurb I used the new Trader Joe's Chocolate (real chocolate) Instant Pudding and used my left over espresso mixture from the tiramisu (strong espresso, chocolate liqueur, Kahlua). I sampled the batter to see if the espresso is too strong. I can definitely taste the coffee but it isn't bitter or overpowering (Grant, take note--might want to try this!). I used my coffeecake pan so it is easier to cut. When I took it out of the pan I heated some chocolate marshmallow frosting until liquid and drizzled it over the warm cake and let them both cool overnight. I'm taking it to a friend at work who just purchased a new home. Hope it makes her happy.
