    Just add espresso powder to any of your cake recipe. It's that simple.

    How much espresso powder? I know it varies by taste, but would be a good starting point

    One cake I make is a dry-ish vanilla cake in a tube pan. When cool it gets soaked with espresso or strong coffee mixed with rum. Then whipped cream is piped over the top and sides and is finished with chopped dark chocolate.

    Just an idea to consider. Would you like the recipe?

    I'd say as much as the main flavouring called for in your recipe. For example, if it calls for 1 tsp vanilla extract, then adding 1 tsp espresso power would be a good start.
