    angelfan's Note:

    This is very moist, and takes on a bit of a red hue after cooling. You may use your favorite icing, the icing listed is my favorite, quick and tasty.

      I use 1/2 c. cold, STRONG, coffee instead of water, and instead of 1/2 c. cocoa I add 3/4 c. If you don't have buttermilk you can sub with 3/4 c. milk plus 2 t. lemon juice or vinegar that sits for 10 minutes before using. Make this with Sprinkles Vanilla Buttercream frosting and it is perfect for a birthday.

      I followed the recipe exactly and the cake was a bit dry. It might be an altitude issue. I'll definitely try again because it was tasty. I love the icing. I've never used evaporated milk for the liquid in an icing.
