Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Disappointment. Flavor was good, dark and bittersweet, with the coffee also a strong contributor. Baking time called for in the recipe was way too long - one hour and five minutes. Because most loaf cakes I bake are more in the 45 minute range, I decided to check it then, and it was already quite done. Batter is very stiff, and the cake wound up dry and crumbly. The frosting also sets up very firm. I'm not sure even less baking time would make this as appealing as many other cakes we make.
