OK! Here is the recipe:
Chocolate Buttermilk Cake
3 C flour
2 1/2 C sugar
1 1/2 T baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 C unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/3 C vegetable oil
1 1/2 C buttermilk
1 1/2 C hot coffee
1 T vanilla extract
Grease two 9" cake pans, line them with wax paper, grease again, then dust with cocoa powder (flour will show up on your cake). Get cocoa powder everywhere. Swear. Turn oven to 350.
|The pans are not dirty, they are READY.|
Put the dry stuff together and mix it up a little.
OK, the coffee should be done. Moving on. Add the buttermilk and oil, then mixalot.
|Baby got back|
|Eggs are photogenic|
Then add the coffee and vanilla. It will be super runny and sloppy, so turn your mixer on REALLY LOW at first, or you will regret it during cleanup. Actually, just mix it in on low.
|Slow looks fast on film! MAGIC!|
Pour into your pans, pop into the oven, set the timer for like 28 minutes (it should take 30-35).
|Slightly fucked-up looking DELICIOUS cake|
Let the cakes cool about ten minutes in the pan, then invert them onto wire racks. There is an easy trick for doing this but this post is already a mile long, so if anyone wants it, ask in the comments and I will oblige.
I will post the filling/frosting part later...Mmmm, German Chocolate Cake.
