  • Beat cake mix, water, and eggs in a bowl on low speed for 30 seconds, then on medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Stir together espresso, coffee liqueur, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Stir together mascarpone, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla in a separate bowl until smooth; stir in espresso mixture.

  • Crumble pound cake into crumbs in a large bowl. Stir mascarpone mixture into cake crumbs until no crumbs remain; you may need to use your hands.

  • Scoop small balls of the mixture with a melon baller or spoon. Roll into balls; place on a baking sheet. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.

I was able to make 3 dozen cake balls as opposed to the stated 2 dozen yield. It's not listed but I dipped my cake balls into melted white chocolate and then into sifted cocoa powder mixed w/ a little bit of powdered sugar. They were amazing!!!! Read More

I tried this recipe when my cousin's wife made it. I loved it. Very moist. My husband suggested I tried it with brownie mix. So when I made it I substituted the cake mix for a box of brownie mix and prepared the brownies according to the package directions for "cake-like" brownies. I also didn't have espresso so I just put already ground coffee into a grinder and processed it on the fine setting. It worked very well. I followed the rest of the recipe and dipped them in dark chocolate. Very yummy!! It yielded 24 servings. Read More
