Espresso Coffee Cream cake

     There is so much going on with us these days , but cooking isn't having any delay for that matter , and i do photograph a few dishes in between , but nothing is being uploaded and posted.
 I hope to sort out everything soon and get busy back with my blog.

So last month it was his birthday , and as usual i had a cake all ready for him in the evening when  he came back from office.  I had been eyeing on this Coffee Cake from Passionate about baking , for long , and felt his birthday to be the perfect time to bake it. I personally love and prefer Coffee flavored in a Cold dessert or a drink, more than Hot Coffee Drinks.
I made very few changes to the recipe , and it was up to the mark , and we loved it.
Little Adya was all happy to help her Appa blow and cut the cake.
