    The cocoa gives this one layer cake a really, really chocolatey flavor. I used 1/2 cup of boiling coffee instead of boiling water. It was easy and fast to put together.

    I doubled the recipe to make a traditional layer cake. I just started baking from scratch. I had always used a box before. My husband was skeptical I could pull it off. He LOVED it. He even bragged to the women at work about how good it was. <br/><br/>I was wasn't sure the batter was correct since it was really thin, but it worked great. I think the addition of the boiling water at the end did something special. I just don't know what.
