But when you mix it with the wet ingredients, it becomes a lot more dense. I hope that makes more sense.

I don’t remember if I doubled the recipe or not but now, for the baby shower, of same couple, I have been asked to make the same cake with the specific request of the mocha frosting so I intend on frosting the whole thing with this recipe and I’m not sure if I need to triple or quadruple it or what. My question is this… It says it makes about 3 cups, but how can that be when it calls for 1 cup of cocoa and 4 cups of confectioner’s sugar? Does it reduce that much? Thank you for a great recipe.

With a heaping tsp of natural peanut butter, i slowly incorporated hot, bowling water making a slurry that equaled 4 tbsp.
Chocolate and peanut butter are made for each other

Would you mind giving details on how much coffee to use? (what I mean is how many teaspoons of coffee & hot water to make up your strong brew coffee – I have Nescafe in my kitchen)

If not… I don’t need to EVER make this again ;)

You could use all warm water or milk instead of coffee.

Does this have a slight coffee taste? If so, replace coffee with what would you suggest? Love fudgey icing though.
