Chocolate Café Au Lait Cake – Sara Brookes
Over the summer, I posted on Twitter that I was making a cake for my family and the reaction to the images I posted was tremendous. So, I thought I’d share the recipe for Chocolate Café Au Lait Cake. Warning, I’m a Southern girl, so there’s nothing “lite” about this recipe.

Chocolate Café Au Lait Cake
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 30 to 37 minutes
1 stick (4 ounces) margarine
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 package devil’s food or chocolate fudge cake mix
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee powder
1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
Melt margarine in a 1 quart glass bowl in the microwave oven on HIGH 1 minute. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and let cool. When cooled, stir in chocolate chips and walnuts, set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. Prep cake mix according to package directions then turn batter into prepared pans. Sprinkle graham cracker crumb/chocolate chip/walnut mixture over cake batter, dividing evenly between the pans. Using your fingertips, lightly press the mixture into the batter (crumb mixture should not sink all the way into the batter).
Bake cake as package directs, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove cakes from the oven and cool completely before unmolding. Keep layers crumb side up.
In a medium bowl, beat cream, coffee powder and powdered sugar on high until stiff. Place one cooled cake layer, crumb side up on a serving plate. Spread three-quarters of the whipped cream mixture over the cake. Top with remaining cake layer, crumb side up then frost sides of the cake with the remaining whipped cream. Do not frost top of cake. Refrigerate until serving time.
It isn’t a birthday celebration without a little pain to chase the pleasure—at least according to Dalton and Cade, the two men who stole Erin’s heart. Relationships are complicated and Erin has been retreating—both emotionally and physically—from her lovers. Pushed away for reasons they don’t understand and determined to overcome her resistance, the men devise a wicked plan. They’ll use two very special gifts and one captivating night to reclaim her submission. They don’t count on Erin’s trip to subspace exposing a heartwrenching confession…one that threatens to rip the triad apart forever.
Warning: Contains a well-trained, dirty-talking submissive who succumbs to the commands of her Master, custom nipple clamps, tongue wagging oral sex, a well-deserved punishment with a butt plug, men who share more than a few heart-racing kisses and a custom-made-work-of-art sex chair that shows this M/M/F triad just how powerful their passion for one another is. And that’s just chapter one.
