Today I am making a black magic cake. Normally I would make it in a bundt pan, but I opted for a loaf pan so I can send half of the cake home with my dear cousin for her family. I love that we have bonded so much these past months and I also have a new home to ship my baking off to to prevent me from eating it all!
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup strong brewed coffee
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your pans of choice 9x13, 2 9" rounds, or a bundt.
In large bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center. Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed. Batter will be thin. Pour into prepared pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pans and finish cooling on a wire rack.
Amun Re not wanting to be outshone by Jak Jak decided to try the tux out for himself in the hopes for a taste of cake. Sorry my little familiar no chocolate cake for breakfast for you.
