Black Magic Cake

Black Magic Cake

Courtney and Jaren come over a lot for Sunday dinner and Cort always wants chocolate cake for dessert so yesterday I just made this cake without even asking her what she wanted since I knew the answer already.  The recipe comes from “allrecipes” and is delicious!

1 3/4 cups flour

2 cups sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 cup strong brewed coffee

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray two 9″ round cake pans or one 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray with flour.

2  In mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

3  Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.  Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed.  (Batter will be thin.)  Pour into prepared pan(s).

4  Bake for 30 – 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.

5  Frost as desired.  I made my favorite buttercream icing then melted about 2 cups of milk chocolate candy melts and added that into the frosting and beat on medium for about 2 minutes until well combined and it was delicious just like the cake!
