Mocha Coffee Coffee Cake

This turned into a most interesting Coffee Cake.  I had a request for a Mocha Coffee Cake and set out for the perfect recipe.  This one spoke to me with 3 different batters, a Vanilla, Dark Cocoa, and Espresso and topped with an Espresso Glaze.  I was initially afraid of my glaze since it was Espresso and coffee and seemed very dark and well... like strong coffee.  My fears subsided after only a few bites.  It was not heavy as I suspected and delicious with the 3 distinctly different flavors.  The glaze was more like a not too rich buttery espresso flavor that enhanced the cake.  Here is the recipe for anyone who cares to make it and my thanks to Joy the Baker for a wonderful recipe!
