    Purabi I was waiting for the post after seeing the promos yesterday (FB).
    What is kahlua? Looks very very tempting. Wanna mind sharing a piece of cake with me?

      Deepa @ Hamaree Rasoi, Thanks for your comment. Oh, I’d love to share my cake with you!! 🙂 Glad that you liked the recipe and the pictures. Kahlua is coffee liquor. If you don’t wish to add this, make the brewed coffee a little stronger to compensate the flavour. Thanks!

    Purabi, the photo you posted on FB was a tantalizing tease… THANK YOU you for following up with your recipe and how-to’s! I was trying to decide which photo I liked best (besides all of them!), but the one with the whisk is so simple and beautiful, as is the one with the split cake layers. I’m trying to avoid looking at the rest (kidding…) — chocolate cake is my all-time favorite dessert and yours looks spectacular!

    Purabi this is a beautiful cake and the combination of coffee, kahlua and chocolate sound heavenly. As for your whipped cream I use powdered sugar to firm mine up. It works perfectly. Powdered sugars contain a bit of cornstarch so it helps to stabilize the whipped cream. My chocolate avalanche cake has a recipe that I use. You can check it out on my blog.

    Thanks for sharing this. I will be sure to try it.

      Thank you Vicki for your expert comment. I used powdered sugar earlier, but the result was soggy. May be I had to use a lot of sugar (which I avoid these days due to health reasons) or maybe it became like that because of the hot weather in Hong Kong. I will surely check out the chocolate avalanche cake recipe. Thanks once again for your valuable advice.

    Beautiful cake. I love the picture of the whipped cream on the wire whip. I’ve not used one, and I’m not a great baker, but I’m under the impression that those devices that use CO2 cartridges to “whip” cream work pretty well. Where you can use it for anything else, I don’t know – and I certainly wouldn’t purchase something that had a single use. But if you getting into baking a lot, you might want to think about it. Good recipe, really excellent post – thanks.

    Chocolate coffee cake! Oh this sounds wonderful Purabi! You know, I’m really scared to make a layered cake like this and have never attempted before. It looks really pretty from the side and one day I hope to make my own kids’ birthday cakes etc… I keep dreaming. 🙂

    cake was looking so wonderful… and by the way I must thank you so much… Actually I am failing to make the perfect whipped cream… I was seeing many videos of how to whip the cream, but still I was getting the butter only… nearly 3 cups of butter i have in my fridge… I was searching in net what to do to get correct whipping cream.. Just saw your post and u gave the tip of adding corn flour… let me try it and definitely share my exp with you… how about using powdered sugar… as I think corn starch already added to it!!! Anyhow thanks once again…

      Akila, thanks dear for your nice words. even I had such a problem earlier, which happens because of over-whipping the cream. Just stop whipping as soon as you get peaks which just bend a little. Powdered sugar does have cornstarch, but then, you have to use more sugar in that case. For my family, I always try to cut down extra sugar, so I prefer adding a bit extra cornstarch.
