    Prep: 10 min.
    Baking: 35 min.
    Cooling: 1 hr.


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups granulated sugar
    2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    2/3 cup cooking oil
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 tsp. instant coffee crystals
    1 cup cold water


    1 3-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
    2 Tbsp. milk
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    2-1/4 to 2-1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
    3 Tbsp. miniature semisweet chocolate pieces (optional)

    For cake, grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl,
    stir together flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda,
    baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, the 3/4 cup milk, the oil, and the
    1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until
    combined, then on medium speed for 2 minutes.
    Dissolve coffee crystals in the cold water; add to cocoa mixture. Beat
    on low speed until smooth (batter will be thin). Pour into prepared
    pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until

    For frosting, in a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and peanut
    butter (mixture will become thick). Gradually beat in the 2
    tablespoons milk and the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in enough of the
