  • Combine butter and unsweetened chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in the microwave until melted, 20 to 30 seconds. Stir milk and vanilla extract into chocolate mixture.

  • Mix flour, 3/4 cup white sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl; stir in chocolate mixture until batter is smooth. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Stir coffee, brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, and cocoa powder together in a bowl; pour over batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Cool cake in the pan for 10 minutes. Turn cake onto a serving platter.

Cook's Note:

Be sure to have a plate or platter that fits tightly over the pan before you flip it. The topping will be runny until it cools more.

This was a good treat with interesting textures. It was very easy to make and was well-received. If I made it again I would increase the amount of chocolate in the cake before I felt it needed more flavor. Read More
