Before the taste test!
I used 1 1/2 tsp. espresso powder dissolved in 1.5 oz of hot water for my "shot" of espresso.
After tasting I could have used more and added some to my glaze, too. This cake is rich and delicious!
I apologize for the glare and bad photos; not a professional photographer.
But I must say I could be a professional eater and I am really glad this recipe only made a small cake!
