This is one of my favorite cakes to make. It is a chocolate cake with a chocolate icing. It is chocolaty but not to overly chocolate or rich. It has a hint of coffee in it but not an over powering flavor. It is just right in every way….love it, love it!!
1 3/4 cups all~purpose flour ~ King Arthur
2 cpus sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup whole buttermilk
1/2 cup veggy oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup fresh hot strong coffee
Line 3 – 8 inch cake pans with parchment paper ~ butter and dust with flour ~ preheat oven to 350
Ok, on this cake I throw all the rules away with this recipe and it works really well ~ I put all the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl with the whisk attachment and mix well ~ mixing all the dry until looks like a brownie mix ~ dry light brown color.
Then I add all the wet ~ start with the hot coffee then the buttermilk, then the rest of the wet ingredients ~ do not want to cook the eggs right ~ mix until all mixed ~ do not over mix ~ run a spatula around making sure all is mixed well. Pour into the cake pans and bake for about 35 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool on rack and then ice ~
9 oz semi sweet chocolate melted ~ I used Bakers S/S
3 sticks butter room temp
1 egg yolk- you can leave this out if it freaks you out
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powder sugar
3 tablespoons hot strong coffee
In a mixer with paddle attachment ~ cream butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add other ingredients and mix well until light and fluffy ~ ice cake and eat! You can make as shown above which is a 3 layers.
This cake makes a great birthday cake too!
