How to make it

  • For the cake, stir together the first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add egg, oil, buttermilk; mix on medium speed until blended.
  • Add hot coffee and vanilla; mix until smooth.
  • Pour batter into a lightly greased 9x11 pan.
  • Bake at 350° for about 35 minutes, or until toothpick can be poked into center of cake and it comes out clean.
  • Set cake pan on rack and allow it to cool completely before frosting.
  • For the frosting, melt butter in glass (microwaveable) mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Slowly begin mixing on low speed, adding half-and-half until frosting is right consistency. Spread over cooled cake. No need to refrigerate the leftovers - refrigeration tends to pull the moisture from baked goods.

    Beautiful, while I'm sure we all sneak in the ol' cake mix once in a while, there's nothing quite like a real homemade chocolate cake, and this one takes the prize! Thanks!
