Ingredients

How to make it

  • Stir together the first 6 cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add egg, oil, buttermilk; mix on medium speed until blended.
  • Add 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”.
  • While cake is baking, prepare the frosting.
  • Melt butter in the microwave in a glass mixing bowl.
  • Add powdered sugar, cocoa and vanilla.
  • Slowly begin mixing on low speed, adding ½ and ½ until frosting is right consistency.
  • Frost cooled cake.
The center will tend to "fall" a bit when cooling   Close

    This sounds like one I used to make when I was first learning to bake....without the coffee, though! Love that addition. My son has a birthday coming up, guess I'll have to make him one of these! (You never get too old for Mom to make you a cake, huh?). Good to see you!!

    You've surfaced... and with style. You've been missed, Krummie. This cake sounds wonderful and as we all know, Ina Garten always says chocolate's flavor is enhanced with a bit of coffee. Mmmmmm
