DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar and vegetable oil.
  • Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and red food coloring until combined.
  • Stir in the coffee and white vinegar.
  • Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients a little at time, mixing after each addition, just until combined.
  • Generously grease and flour two round cake pans with crisco and flour.
  • Pour the batter evenly into each pan.
  • Bake in the middle rack for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not over bake as cake will continue to cook as it cools.
  • Let cool on a cooling rack until the pan are warm to the touch.
  • Slide a knife or offset spatula around the inside of the pans to loosen the cake from the pan.
  • Remove the cakes from the pan and let them cool.
  • Frost the cake with cream cheese frosting when the cakes have cooled completely.
