ThePioneerWoman's Coffee Cake

This coffee cake by The Pioneer Woman lives up to it's name..it's really very good! My family couldn't wait for the cake to chill for 1 hour before trying it out, so we cut the cake before it 'set' - hence it is very soft and breaks very easily, but it's just as delicious. If you are a coffee lover, this cake is for you. I'm not a coffee lover and i think like this cake already..LOL! Oh ya, i reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup - i think it's already sweet with 1/4 cup less sugar.

I didn't use her icing as i don't really like butter/powdered sugar icing cos it's way to sweet imo, i used the meringue buttercream (which is not very sweet & more buttery in texture) i already had in my fridge - add coffee paste & coffee powder and voila, coffee buttercream and it taste really good! :D

[Note]: This cake gives a coffee-aftertaste after eating. I'm not too sure if i like the aftertaste since i am not a coffee drinker and i don't drink coffee because of this reason. On the whole the cake is indeed yummy..all the coffee lovers in my office said it's very good..only people like me who's not a coffee drinker finds the aftertaste a bit strong..LOL!
