Black Coffee Chocolate Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kathy228

This is the EASIEST dark chocolate cake yet. It is super-chocolaty and very moist. I've been using this recipe for 30-years. NOTE: Here's a substitute for the one cup buttermilk: 2/3 cup plain yogurt plus 1/3 cup milk.

Delicious! So rich and chocolately, not to mention super simple to throw together! I used vegetable oil instead of grapeseed.
