Serves:12 Cooking TIme: 35 minutes Preheat Oven:350*
1 3/4 cups All-Purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp of salt
1 cup of buttermilk (or substitute by adding 1 TBSP white vinegar in a cup then filling rest with milk, let stand 5 min until thickened).
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 TBSP vanilla extract
1 cup hot coffee (or 2 tsp instant coffee in one cup of boiling water)
Prep: Preheat oven to 350*/ Grease and flour 2, 9″ baking pans (or line with parchment paper) and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl of a standing mixer (or a hand mixer will do, that’s what I used), stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla extract and beat until smooth (about 3 min). Remove bowl from stand mixer and add hot coffee, with a rubber spatula. The batter will be VERY runny. Pour batter evenly in prepared pans.
Bake on middle rack in oven for about 35 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center and comes out clean with a few crumbs.
Allow it to cool 15 minutes in pans. Then place the cakes out of the pans on wire rack (or I used paper towels, cause I ain’t that fancy). Cool for an additional 20 minutes.
Ice your cake and enjoy! Here’s a recipe for a super easy quick chocolate buttercream frosting. Its so yum! 🙂 Note: Drink with a Huge glass of milk. You will need it! 🙂
