    Very nice cake recipe. This was my first try at chiffon cake and I was very pleased with how it turned out. It came easily out of the pan after being loosened just a bit. I couldn't really taste a significant amount of coffee flavor, so I glazed it with an orange glaze so that even if there was a hint of coffee, it would still blend well with the kick of orange. I then topped it with hazelnuts. It looks lovely. Thanks for the recipe!  -  21 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm sorry...this is a light cake but it has such an ODD taste it's awful. I will not make this one again.  -  25 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
