    For the filling and icing

    • 85g golden caster sugar
    • 4 tbsp very strong coffee (see tip below)
    • 50g dark chocolate, for grating

    Method

    1. Heat the oven, line the tins and make the sponge as described in the 'goes well with' recipe, sifting the cocoa powder with the flour and baking powder.

    2. For the filling, beat the mascarpone and sugar together, then beat in the coffee. Use half the mix to sandwich the cakes and spread the other half over the top, swirling with the back of a spoon to make pointy curls. Finely grate the chocolate over the top, then serve.

    Should be 4 teaspoons of coffee as opposed to 4 tablespoons - filling comes out far too bitter otherwise.

    Rich, delicious and very easy to make. I did however take on-board the quantity of coffee and water and used 4 teaspoons of coffee to 4 teaspoons of water, I also used less mascarpone 350g. I will certainly be baking this again :-)

    Lovely fudgy moist cake, but the ingredients needs to be changed to 4tsp not tablespoons, as I put all the stated coffee in and it was far too runny and bitter. I managed to fix it by adding lots more golden caster sugar and icing sugar and some extra mascarpone but I now have far too much for the cake. Tasted good though and I would make it again.

    I made a similar recipe to this combining chocolate, coffee and brazil nuts and it tasted fab! You can find it here: http://helenasbistro.wordpress.com/2014/06/15/brazilian-coffee-chocolate-cake/ :)

    Lovely cake, I used fresh filter coffee instead of instant for the icing. I agree with other comments that 1.5 tubs of mascarpone is probably enough. I felt that the cake mixture was quite thick, and I'd probably add more milk if I made it again - I didn't think there was quite enough to make two separate sponges.

    I used 3 tbsp of mild mellow birds coffee with 3 tbsp boiling water for a smooth taste that was strong enough but not bitter. I used the full amount of mascarpone and mixed in 2 tbsp of Tia Maria to make a tiramisu style icing. It went brilliantly with the fudgy chocolate sponge.
