So..this is the first year me and my husband are gluten free and his birthday is coming up on the 14th. I've been trying to find a really good recipe for soy and gluten free mocha cake. the Gluten is the bigger deal we can have soy if necessary. I tried looking at betty crockers gluten free stuff but I don't see anything mocha. I am doubting i can just get chocolate cake mix and mix coffee into it...suggestions? I'd really appreciate it!

I don't know what a mocha cake is - other than espresso powder added to cake and frosting. If that's what you mean, I'd buy King Arthur gluten-free chocolate cake mix and espresso powder. Add about 1 tsp. each to the cake and frosting.

Brewed coffee won't give you the flavor you're looking for. You need espresso powder.

You could try this. I subscribe to this mag and their recipes are usually quite good.

Happy Birthday to your hubs!

I would think any chocolate cake mix could be used, just use coffee instead of water for the cake mix, and put espresso powder in the frosting as previously suggested. Sounds good!
