Mocha Torte - Free Betty Crocker Coffee Recipe
Recently found this recipe on an old Betty Crocker Coffee Maker's instruction page. Since Betty Crocker has great recipes, and the recipe was provided free, thought I'd pass it along. Ingredients: 1 pkg. Betty Crocker white angel food cake mix; 1-1/3 cups of Strong Coffee [cold]; 1 pkg Betty Crocker fluffy white frosting mix; 2 tsp. freeze-dried instant coffee; 1/2 oz. grated semisweet chocolate; 1 tbsp. toasted sliced almonds. Directions: Prepare cake according to pkg directions but substitute water with cold coffee. Bake and cool. Prepare frosting while cake is cooling according to the directions except dissolve instant coffee into the boiling water. Cut cake into 3 layers using a long serrated knife. Cover each layer of the cake with 1-1/4 cups of frosting. Join the layers together and cover the rest of the cake with the remaining frosting and add sprinkles of remaining chocolate and almonds to the outside. makes 20-24 servings. *Calorie counters remember that 2-1/2 pieces of cake [one piece = 2.5 oz. of cake] provides 250 calories.
