I don't know whether it is the crunchiness of the walnuts or flavor of coffee or richness of chocolate, I got addicted to this cake forever. I came across this wonderful recipe from Divya's Easy cooking and is definitely a keeper.It does not have any fancy ingredients but still the cake looks rich,moist and soft and tastes awesome nothing less than brownies.
