Can food with coffee in cause anxiety?

I've been avoiding coffee but had a slice of coffee cake today thinking it wouldn't be too bad. However I'm right on edge now. Could that have caused it?

I wouldn’t think so. Even with coffee you need to be drinking several cups to make you agitated. Could it possibly be something else that’s got you on edge

I would only think so if you have a real caffeine sensitivity x

Maybe I'm on edge and the coffee just tips the balance. There's one coffee shop that I really like but have to avoid it because I feel anxious after one cup because their brand is so strong.

I'm sensitive to caffeine, if there's enough coffee in the cake it might affect me. Dark chocolate can do it too.
