You can actually use leftover coffee for this trick, or brew a fresh pot.  If you use fresh coffee, make sure to let it cool before use – this trick will make sure you can a richer, nuttier flavour out of the coffee.  As much as you think this will make any cake taste like coffee, but the flavours really work, even if its not a traditional chocolate cake.

Simply switch the water in any recipe with the same amount of coffee – or go half as much if you are worried about the coffee being overpowering.  Taking this trick further, you can use other Kitchen Staples to make boxed dessert mix taste amazing – try using milk, liquors or, surprisingly, mayo.
