Posted by Debbye27This is my go to recipe for chocolate cake, it is very moist, extremely tasty, and has never failed me- I use this for stacking, fondant, sculpting, and it is even egg-less! It does not have a coffee taste to it- the coffee brings out the chocolate flavor- and this recipe uses only two bowls, no mixers needed!
|1 1/2 cup||flour|
|1 1/2 cup||cake flour|
|1/2 cup||unsweetened cocoa powder|
|2 tsp||baking soda|
|2 cups||hot water|
|3/4 cups||vegetable oil|
|2 tbsp||distilled white vinegar|
|1 tbsp||instant coffee|
Directions:Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 8 inch pans.
Sift flours, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to mix it all together.
Combine hot water, oil, vinegar, instant coffee, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
Add to the dry ingredients and whisk just until combined. Mixture will start bubbling, Immediately divide batter between pans, and bake about 30-45 minutes.
