Ingredients

    3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole-wheat pastry flour, (see Ingredient Note)
    1/2 cup granulated sugar I used Splenda)
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    1 large egg, lightly beaten
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup hot strong black coffee

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with a circle of wax paper.

Whisk flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

Add buttermilk, brown sugar, egg, oil and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add hot coffee and beat to blend. (The batter will be quite thin.)

Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake the cake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from the pan, peel off the wax paper and let cool completely. Dust the top with confectioners’
sugar before slicing.



TIPS & NOTES
Ingredient Note: Whole-wheat pastry flour, lower in protein than regular whole-wheat flour, has less gluten-forming potential, making it a better choice for tender baked goods. You can find it in the natural-foods section of large super markets and natural-foods stores. Store in the freezer.

Tip: No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make “sour milk”: mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.

Serving Size: Makes 8 or 12 slices (I like them big)

Number of Servings: 8
