It seems I have made it my personal mission to create cohesive marriages between foods that are separate entities, but are commonly eaten together.
Coffee, do you take Donuts to be your lawfully wedded wife(s)? Of course you do. You were made for each other!
The idea for this cake first came to me when I found this recipe, originally from Gourmet magazine. I figure 1389 reviewers can't be wrong. If a whopping 91% would make it again, then I should at least try it once. I'm happy to report I'll be adding my 4-fork review very soon! The cake batter gets a good dose of brewed coffee, so I began searching for a complimentary coffee buttercream icing. Amongst the searching I found a new baked donut recipe I was eager to try. I decided to combine everything together in one big over-the-top cake - and what better pairing than coffee and donuts (...and chocolate cake and buttercream icing)?
