SEPTEMBER: Mocha Java Coffee Cake

I made this a few weeks ago for an event. It had been years since I made it and it was as good as ever. I even made a large one and sent it over to one of the locations where people were helping with Irene clean up. Still waiting for my pan back! I am giving you the recipe for 2 cakes. You will want one in your freezer for those sudden guests.

1 c. soft butter
2.5 cups of sugar
4 eggs
2 T. of liquid coffee.
1 tsp vanilla

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time to mix well. Add the coffee and vanilla and blend

4 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/ 4 tsp salt
2.5 cups of sour cream

Sift the dry ingredients together. Add alternately to the sugar/ butter mix alternating with the sour cream.

1/ 2 cup of raisins (soak in hot water, O.J., coffee or liqueur.) Drain. Add to the above mix.

1 cup brown sugar
2/ 3 cups chopped walnuts
4 tsp. cinnamon
4 tsp. instant coffee.

Mix these 4 ingredients together.

Grease 2 9×13 inch pans. Pour half the batter into each pan. Sprinkle with the struessel
mix and bake at 350 for 40 – 50 minutes.

When cool drizzle with a mix of:

2 cups of 10 x sugar

Make a big pot of coffee and invite your friends over. Let me know when it’s ready!
