    This is the best chocolate cake! I've made it twice this week. The first time the cake had a sunken middle, so the second time around I substituted sour cream for the buttermilk. This fixed the problem beautifully. I also reduced the sugar amount. Yum-O.

    So if you use 2tsp of instant coffee, you have to use 1 cup of boiling water as well
