black magic chocolate cake

Best. Chocolate. Cake. Ever. My husband loves chocolate cake, but is kinda fussy and not fussy atthe same time! He said to me...wait for can just buy a Betty Crocker Mix and make that. I said "Uhhh, I don't think so" Yuck. But, knowing that was the "type" of cake he liked i have been making different recipes, just to see if they are as good as they say they are, trying to find that special go to recipe!

So when i found Kathleen's Gonna Want Seconds Cooking Blog! and her delicious Black Magic Chocolate Cake she had made from Hershey's....I had to try it! And, YES, it was WONDERFUL! =)

2 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup strong black coffee
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans or one 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2. Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes (Batter will be thin). Pour batter evenly into prepared pans.

3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes for round pans, 35 to 40 minutes for rectangular pan or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely. Frost as desired. Yields 10 to 12 servings.

I made my favourite chocolate frosting recipe and had enough to ice both 9 inch ruonds, DEEELICIOUS!! =)
