Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe

2 C Sugar

1 3/4 C Flour, cake flour if you have it

3/4 C Cocoa

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

In the bowl of your standing mixer, combine dry ingredients.  Add eggs, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla.  Mix until wet.  Add coffee and mix. Put into 2 greased cake pans, sheet pan, or cupcake pan.  And that’s it! Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clear.  Let cool on wire rack before frosting.

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

I tasted my way through this frosting.   I started with 1 stick of softened butter, added cocoa (2/3 cup, but probably more), enough powdered sugar to sweetened it up, some vanilla, and just a splash of milk to make it a smooth consistency.  Double deeelicious!
