Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch round pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl stir together flour, 3/4 cup sugar, cocoa, instant coffee, baking soda and salt. Beat in 1/2 cup softened butter, sour cream, egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then turn out onto a wire rack. Gently peel off parchment paper. Cool completely.
  4. To make the Fudge Nut Glaze: In a small saucepan combine cream, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, corn syrup, chocolate chips. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Continue to cook stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool 10 minutes. Stir in nuts and vanilla.
  5. Place cake on serving plate. Pour glaze evenly over cake, allowing some to run down sides. Arrange nuts on top. Refrigerate until glaze is firm, about 1 hour.

I made this cake for Christmas and it was a hit. On top of that, it was easy to make. I have already filed it away and plan to make it again.

This cake was wonderful, very chocolatey. The glaze was the best tasting I have used. Usually I make a 2 layer cake & end up throwing half of it away (its just me and my husband). This is the perfect size. I know, who would throw away chocolate? Thanks for the great recipe. Karen

I made this cake for a family gathering and everyone loved it! I did not use any pecans or nuts. It still tasted great! I am planning on making it again! Thanks for this recipe!!!
