Now that we find ourselves spending more time at home again and less time out and about cruising the streets, it's time to get baking. With the dirty coffee cream cake you do not need to go to a coffee cafe to experience something this amazing.

Decadence of another level. I had to beg my mother in law for this recipe. The longer the cake stands, the better it becomes. A definite must bake, for anyone who loves a rich and moist cake.

This coffee cream cake is so delicious even the non-coffee lovers out there will enjoy a slice or two.
