A question about a recipe: Deep Chocolate Cake with Orange Icing

02b82bf7 116d 45a4 adfb 1c229f592ae9  2014 0204 deep chocolate cake orange icing 005

I have a question about the ingredient "strong coffee (or use instant espresso)" on the recipe "Deep Chocolate Cake with Orange Icing" from merrill: does this mean ground/instant coffee powder or does one have to actually make the coffee and use the liquid? Thanks!

You want the liquid version. Either strong brewed coffee or dissolved instant espresso powder.
