Excellent chocolate cake from scratch with a twist. The coffee adds an extra dimension to the flavor. This has been everyone's favorite for years. A great recipe when paired with a cream cheese frosting. Very moist and enjoyable. You won't go back to a boxed cake again. Also makes great cupcakes.

  • Combine flour, sifted cocoa, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl. Combine milk, coffee, and vanilla extract in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup.

  • Combine sugar, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with milk mixture, beating batter briefly after each addition. Batter will be very runny. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

Cook's Note:

You can also make a 2-layer 9-inch round cake or 24 cupcakes.

I made this cake just as written in terms of the ingredients, and it's delicious. The cake itself is not too sweet, so you can sweeten to your liking with a frosting or glaze. I made a bundt cake, so I increased the cooking time to 45 minutes which worked perfectly. Read More
