My Mom sent me the following recipe, along with a note saying: "It's a conversation starter! You can't taste the beans! The cake is very good. Unbelievable. You must try it. It tastes like spice cake! Everybody likes it!" I don't know who gave the recipe to her, but it looks like the kind of thing a bachelor could dig into...
