Ingredients

  • 2

    cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 8

    ounces butter - (2 sticks)

  • 1/2

    cup brewed espresso (or other strong coffee)

  • 1/2

    cup orange juice

  • 1/4

    cup baking cocoa plus

  • 1

    tablespoon baking cocoa

  • 1/2

    cup mascarpone cheese room temperature

  • 2

    eggs slightly beaten

  • 2

    teaspoons almond extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8- by 2-inch round pan and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Remove the pan from the heat and add the coffee, orange juice, and cocoa, stirring well to combine. Pour the butter mixture over the flour mixture. Add the cheese, eggs, and almond extract, and beat the ingredients until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into the pan and bake it for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan, then carefully unmold it onto a serving plate. Serve the cake as is, or sprinkled with confectioner's sugar. This recipe yields 8 servings.
