DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F; line two 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper and lightly butter.
  • Beat butter, shortening, and sugars together until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until smooth and light.
  • Stir the buttermilk and vanilla together. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and spices together in a large bowl.
  • Alternately stir the flour mixture and buttermilk, in thirds, into the beaten butter. Blend well with each addition.
  • Pour batter into the pans and bake until center tests clean -- about 35 minutes. Cool cakes in the pans on a rack for 30 minutes, unmold, and cool completely before frosting (if desired).
