Introduction

This is an easy and delicious cake that gets even moister the next day. The trick is not to over bake. Bake it in a bundt or tube pan for a cake presentation, or in 24 muffin tins for cupcakes.

Ingredients

    Granulated Sugar, 2 cup
    Flour, white, 1.75 cup
    Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened, .75 cup
    Baking Soda, 2 tsp
    Baking Powder, 1 tsp
    Salt, .5 tsp
    Egg, fresh, 2 large
    Buttermilk, lowfat, 1 cup
    Strong Coffee, 1 cup
    Canola Oil, .5 cup
    Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp

Directions

Put all ingredients into a large bowl and beat until smooth, It is a thin batter. Pour into a large lightly oiled nonstick bundt or tube pan, and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Bake cupcakes for 15 minutes and test.

Test with a long skewer and keep baking at 5 minute intervals until just done. Do not over bake, because if this cake is over baked and dry it loses all of its charm. Even if it is slightly underdone, it is better, because then it is like a torte. Makes 24 slices.
Cool it in the pan for about 10 minutes, then invert it onto a cooling rack and let cool completely before transferring to a cake plate.
I serve it as is, or with fresh raspberries and cream or ice cream, or I pour a glaze over it when cool. If I want to go over the top, then I make a rich icing which is in a separate recipe.

Number of Servings: 24
