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
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!
