    I did not put the glaze on - which generally would make me not rate it - just powdered sugar as the glaze seemed so dessert instead fo breakfast - but this was one boring coffee cake - maybe it HAS to sit for 24 hours for any mocha flavor to develope? I will not be trying to fine out - how can sour cream, coffee and coco powder be so boring?

    Im not sure i would ever make this again. i should have read the one review it does have. It is quite boring actually. I wondered perhaps if i should've added coffee extract to the mix. Its a beautiful cake and i really expected a stronger coffee flavor but its almost tasteless even with the cocoa. and PS DO NOT use cooking spray to grease the pan...i shouldve known that you ALWAYS use vegetable shortening & flour. The cake stuck to the pan with the cooking spray.
