I got this recipe from a very dear friend. This absolutely the very best chocolate cake ever. It is the most requested at family gatherings frosted with the Whoopie Pie Filling that I have posted with my cupcakes--Mimi's Whoopie Pie Filled Chocolate Cupcakes. It is also good with a Butter Frosting. This cake is so moist and dark because of the coffee. It is so easy because you dump everything in a bowl and lastly put in the coffee and it is ready to bake.
- Put everything into a mixing bowl EXCEPT the hot coffee; beat well.
- Add the hot coffee and mix.
- Put into a 9x13 greased pan or layer pans.
- Bake 375 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes or till done.
- Frost when cool.
This is also known as Black Magic Cake. It has been my favorite chocolate cake for decades, and the only one that I make.
Perfect... used this for cupcakes :)
wonderful its the best i've had homemade. So much better then a box mix. So moist and just the right sweetness this is definately my chocolate cake from now on thanks so much
