Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
teaspoons baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
cup vegetable oil
eggs, room temperature
cup freshly brewed hot coffee
sticks of room temperature butter
cups confectioners sugar
tablespoons heavy cream
Combine the buttermilk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
Pour in the hot coffee.
Pour the batter into two prepared pans. I used 9-inch pans. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in the pans for 30 minutes and then turn them out on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Gradually add the cocoa powder. Really, add it slowly or you and your kitchen will be wearing it.
Add just enough cream to get the consistency for spreading. Add the vanilla.
