    Chocolate Tiramisu Cake

    1 (18.25-oz.) pkg. German Chocolate Cake Mix
    1 1/4 cups water
    1/3 cup oil
    3 eggs

    Soaking Syrup
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon instant coffee granules or crystals
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup brewed coffee


    1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 tablespoons powdered sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa

    Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray two 9-inch round cake pans. In large bowl, combine all cake ingredients; beat at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour batter evenly into pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 29 to 33 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and top springs back when lightly touched in center. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans; place on wire racks. Cool 25 minutes or until completely cooled.

    Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine sugar, instant coffee and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in coffee ( or coffee liqueur.) Cool 30 minutes or until completely cooled. Brush flat side of each cake layer with soaking syrup until absorbed. Place cakes in freezer for 5 minutes.

    In small bowl, combine cream cheese, whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla; beat at low speed until blended. Beat at medium speed until thickened, smooth and of a creamy frosting consistency. Do not overbeat. Place 1 cake layer, rounded side down, on serving plate. Top with half of cream cheese mixture. Place second layer, rounded side down, on top. Top with remaining cream cheese mixture. Slice cake; place on individual dessert plates. Place cocoa in fine strainer; sprinkle plates and cake with cocoa. Store in refrigerator. Makes 8 servings
