Does anyone have a good chocolate cake recipe that calls for coffee or espresso that they would not mind sharing? I want the coffee as an ingredient because I want an intense chocolate flavor.

Here's the recipe to an amazing flourless chocolate espresso cake.
I found it originally in "Bon Appetit" magazine and it is truly divine. The last time I made it for my in-laws birthday, I had to give the recipe to nearly everyone in attendance. Enjoy!

Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake with Raspberry Sauce

Ingredients:
SAUCE
3 10-ounce packages frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed

CAKE
12 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter, diced
1 cup freshly brewed espresso or 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder dissolved in 1 cup water
1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
8 large eggs, beaten to blend

Fresh raspberries preparation
FOR SAUCE:

Working in batches, puree raspberries and syrup in processor. Strain puree into medium bowl. Chill. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep chilled.)

FOR CAKE:

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line bottom of 9-inch-diameter cake pan with 2-inch-high sides with parchment. Place all chocolate in large bowl. Bring butter, espresso and sugar to boil in medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add to chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool slightly. Whisk in eggs.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Place cake pan in roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of cake pan. Bake until center of cake is set and tester inserted into center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 1 hour. Remove pan from water. Chill cake overnight.

Cut around pan sides to loosen cake. Using oven mitts as aid, hold pan bottom over low heat for 15 seconds, warming slightly to release cake. Place platter over pan. Hold pan and platter together tightly and invert. Lift off cake pan; peel off parchment.

Serve with sauce and fresh berries.

Are you able to define the ingredients by simply looking at the picture?

This is not my own recipe, but I want to share some recipe. This is called Moist Chocolate Cake.
Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot brewed coffee
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Frosting:
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup hot milk

Directions
> Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 or two 9 inch round pans. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine hot coffee with 1 cup cocoa and let cool to lukewarm.
> In a large bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the coffee and cocoa mixture; beat well.
> Pour batter into a 9x13 inch cake or two 9 inch round pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
> To make the frosting: In a medium bowl, combine confectioners sugar, 1 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup butter and 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla. Mix until smooth. Add hot milk a teaspoon at a time to make a smooth, spreadable consistency. Spread onto cooled cake.

Hope you will like it! :-)

I tried moist chocolate cake once, and it was delicious. Does your cake look like this one?
