Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk egg, oil and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir well. Slowly add the coffee until combined (batter will be thin).

  • Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

  • For Frosting, melt butter in a small saucepan. Add the sugar and milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the melted chips and stir until blended. Pour over cake, spreading evenly. Drizzle with caramel topping and sprinkle with pecans.

Tips

TEST KITCHEN TIP To make drizzling easier, spoon caramel topping into a small resealable plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Press topping out for an even and less messy drizzle.

Very good tasting and moist cake. Due to the extra coffee liquid, mine required more baking time, but I just kept my eye on it. I'm sure I'll be making this again!! Read More

This cake was surprising! The batter was very thin, the thinnest I have ever seen, so I was a little skeptical about how it'd turn out. It came out a little shriveled in the middle but it was really moist and light! Great recipe! It's a keeper! Read More

I saw the picture of this cake and there's 2 or 3 different frostings... can anyone recommend a good filling other than this frosting before I try this recipe? Read More
