Recently I made this Tiramisu bundt cake. I have to make a confession here, I prefer homemade cake over box cake. My daughter on the other hand, prefers the box. This recipe uses a box. Because of my biast opinion, I have decided to give this cake a 3.5 out of 5, let me tell you why:
1) Easy, it's a box cake, a pint of coffee ice cream, and some eggs. Simple stuff.
2) The cake does taste like coffee. How couldn't it with a pint of coffee ice cream! :)
3) The tiramisu part I disagree with. There's too many elements missing, and believe me, I know, I love tiramisu! I think this really should have just been called coffee bundt cake. I did add a dusting off cocoa powder on top of the glaze, but that still didn't cut it.
Overall, this is good, but again, I'm not a box cake person and it was overly soft to me. Good flavor though, so if you like really soft cakes, you'll like this! Oh and just so you know, I didn't follow the frosting instructions, instead I "painted" on a simple powdered sugar glaze with a pastry brush, let it dry, then added a glaze flavored with instant espresso.
