I'm sorry that it was too weak. I like this mild version. But I see that you have your COFFEE flavour instead of my "coffee" version ready.

Ok,it's out and tested and I'm still disappointed. It still doesn't taste like coffee, or maybe doesn't taste enough like coffee. Ugh. Will try again tomorrow, am just too tired now. I made 2 of those small expressos and put them in measuring out the amount so as to lessen the milk but for some reason it's still vanilla cake.
As to the coffee making, Maxine this is for you. So my DH comes in, I explain my predicament, he has to run so shows me how to make the coffee going through it very precisely. He leaves. I turn the machine on, put the capsule in, wait for the light to stop flashing, press the button & get nothing but boiled water! I start panicking thinking I must have broken the machine or something, my sister from Nevada chooses that precise moment to call me, I explain what's going on & very calmly she says "did you push the capsule in all the way"? Ah ha! panic over, I made the coffee but am now left with 4, 2 inch 9x9 coffee coloured sponge cakes
Anyway....... Should I add more coffee?

Or, if anyone has a good coffee cake recipe they are willing to share, I'd really appreciate it.

Actually, the solution now might be to mix more of that brewed coffee with a little sugar to make a syrup. Drizzle that over your baked cake to enhance the flavour of the coffee.

The other answer would be to purchase a coffee oil flavouring but I can't recommend a brand.

That sounds like a great idea, I shall definitely do that. Thanks!

The two suggestions that Irene posted are well worth a try ... thumbs_up.gif

I did a Google and found this - it seems to be one of the best....

This LorAnn Coffee Oil Flavour is 3 to 4 times stronger than grocery store extracts. When substituting LorAnn Coffee Oil Flavour for extracts, use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon for 1 teaspoon of extract. LorAnn Coffee Oil Flavour does not contain vegetable oil and unlike extracts it's flavour does not diminish when exposed to high heat. LorAnn Coffee Oil Flavour is suitable for hard candy, candy centers, fondants, frostings, fudges, cakes, cookies, brownies and sweet breads. Kosher Certified. Gluten Free & Sugar Free Contains: Artificial flavour, Water, Propylene Glycol, Caramel Color. Soluble in water. Appropriate for use in chocolates and coatings. Each bottle contains 1 dram which is approximately 3.7ml.

Hope this is of help....

Thank you both for your help, I will give the easier option a try first and if that doesn't work I will order the coffee oil. Much; much appreciated.

Ok, so I finally had a chance to try out drizzling some coffee on top of the cake, I then spread some chocolate ganache on top - delicious, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much.
