Made it for a dessert instead of breakfast

It is very tasty when it's warm. There are MANY steps but they can be done in small snatches of time. I used about 1/4 C less sugar and it was still good. Topping: added the 2 Tbsp flour to the topping. It easier to mix the butter, flour, and sugar BEFORE adding the chocolate and nuts to the topping. The topping MAKES the cake! Also, it would be better to remove 2 C of batter and set aside, then add the chocolate/coffee to the batter in the bowl.
