  1. Lisa, when do i add the coffee mixture to cake batter? after its all combined then pour in warm coffee mixture?
    1. Hi Katie! You are correct! The mocha mixture should be added once the egg mixture has been combined with the dry ingredients. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I will get it corrected asap!! Thanks again and have a great day!! Lisa :)
