Ingredients Serving: 9

  1. 3/4 cups flour
  2. 2 cups sugar
  3. 3/4 cups cocoa
  4. 2 teaspoons baking soda
  5. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 cup buttermilk
  8. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  9. 2 eggs room temperature
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  11. 1 cup freshly brewed hot coffee
  12. Chocolate buttercream: 2 sticks of room temperature butter
  13. 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  14. 1/2 cup cocoa
  15. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  16. 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream


  1. In the bowl of your mixer, add the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix this mixture on low until combined.
  2. Combine the buttermilk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Pour in the hot coffee.
  3. Pour the batter into two prepared pans. I used 9-inch pans. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Cool in the pans for 30 minutes and then turn them out on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. Chocolate Buttercream : Cream together the butter and sugar. Gradually add the cocoa powder. Really, add it slowly or you and your kitchen will be wearing it.
  6. Add just enough cream to get the consistency for spreading. Add the vanilla.Yum. Ice your cakes. And pipe the edges for decoration.
