The Best Chocolate Cake You’ll Ever Eat!

I found the recipe on this site.  It will, from now on, be my “go to” chocolate cake.  We polished this cake off with some friends in a matter of minutes…  This was the last little bit that was remaining.  YUM!

Disclaimer:  If you’re currently on a diet, skip this recipe!  Move on to the healthy pot roast!  However, if you need a treat, this is the recipe for you.  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

1 3/4 c all purpose flour
2 c sugar
3/4 c cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 c strong black coffee, cooled
1 c buttermilk
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 tsp real vanilla extract

Chocolate Frosting

1/2 c butter, softened
2 oz melted unsweetened chocolate, cooled
3 c powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS:

1) Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.
2)  Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.
3)  Beat at medium speed for two minutes.  Batter will be thin.
4)  Pour batter into a greased and floured 9×13 pan or two 9 inch cake pans.
5)  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes for a 9×13, or 30-35 minutes for layer pans.
