12 large pieces
1-3/4 cups (425 ml) flour
2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
1/8 tsp (1 ml) ground cloves
4 oz (112 grm) semi-sweet baker's chocolate
1/2 cup (125 ml) brewed coffee - can be hot
1 cup (225 ml) sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
1/2 cup (125 ml) butter
2 cups (475 ml) whipping cream
1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla
1/2 tsp (2 ml) cinnamon


Sift together the first 4 ingredients. Combine the coffee and chocolate over heat until chocolate is melted. Cool. Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating each on in. Beat in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture. Then add alternately the liquid and dry ingredients, beating well in between. Pour batter into 2 well greased 8 inch cake pans. Bake in 350 degree (175 C.) F. oven for one half hour. Cool cakes for about 10-15 minutes in pans before removing. Frost and fill the cake with the cinnamon whipped cream. Keep refrigerated, or add a little gelatin to the whipping cream to hold firm. Whip Cream frosting: Chill mixing bowl and beaters. Whip the cream until stiff, add slowly the vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon. Do not over beat! The coffee flavor gives body - but is not noticeable. Even my 7 year old loves this case.
