Dark Chocolate Cake
Recently my sister needed to made a Chocolate Cake and I helped her find a good recipe to use. I noticed the recipe for Dark Chocolate Cake I at allrecipes.com and decided that would make a good base recipe. I wrote up the recipe for her to use and subbed coffee for the water and cake flour for the all-purpose flour.
In a bowl pour boiling coffee over cocoa and whisk until smooth. Set aside and let mixture cool completely. Meanwhile, sift together cake flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the cocoa mixture. Spread batter evenly between greased cake pans. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Make enough batter for 2 9″ round pans or could be divided into 3 8″ round pans.
Frost with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.
