    I used 375g of hot coffee...I assumed it didn't mean 375g of coffee powder. Perhaps that's why my cake was so dense?

    The cake texture is very dense and very moist - almost like a heavy mouse/cheesecake/blancmange. Just wondering if that is per the recipe or if I made a mistake? It seems more "flourless", despite the fact I used the self raising flour.The outside was cooked nicely. The taste is lovely, although I think I could have used even stronger coffee.
