  3. Stir in the flour, the cocoa powder, and the orange juice and mix until homogeneous. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake cake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 40 minutes. Remove cake from oven and immediately spread coffee glaze over top.
  5. To Make Glaze: Five minutes before cake is done, mix together confectioners' sugar, Nescafe powder, and milk. Use immediately to spread over hot cake.

This was not to my taste. 1 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder? This is not a chocolate cake. It's an instant coffee and a hint of orange juice cake, which don't seem to go well together at all.
