OMG!!! I made this cake....FABULOUS!!! At first I thought "buttermilk, mayonnaise & butter" whoa!!! But it is worth every decadent calorie!!! I used espresso ( LOVE COFFEE =) & frosted it with a Kahlua Marscapone Whip, garnished with an Espresso Anglaise....thank you thank you & thank you again!!!
What a yummy cake! I increased the recipe to 1 1/2 and cooked it in 3 round cake pans to make a triple layer cake. I used what I had on hand, which was instant coffee crystals (instead of instant espresso) and strong brewed coffee (instead of espresso). It was still delicious, especially the batter, which was VERY hard to resist! I frosted the outside with white buttercream and the inside layers with dark chocolate. Sprinkled grated chocolate on top. It was as delicious as it was beautiful. It would have looked even nicer with white buttercream between the layers. This was a moist & tasty cake. Quite a hit!
Yummy! Cheered me up after another mishap filled day and was devoured by my colleagues in record time. Was having a day where I was incapable of following instructions, so I let the butter melt in the coffee/buttermilk, then chucked in all the flour.
