Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8- or 9-inch square pan with vegetable oil spray. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together apples and sugar; let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together flour, optional cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a medium bowl, stir together remaining ingredients except confectioners’ sugar.

Stir apple mixture into flour mixture.

Add coffee mixture, stirring just until blended. Pour batter into pan.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Let cool on a rack for about 30 minutes. To serve, remove from pan, dust cake with confectioners’ sugar, and cut into squares.
