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--recipe #101798. 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.
