Chocolate Cake Layers
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cups cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup hot coffee
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Adjust oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and line 2, 8-inch baking pans with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the dry ingredients & mix.
  3. Add in the buttermilk, hot coffee, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until well combined 1-2 mins.
  4. Divide batter among cake pans and bake until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean, about 35 to 40 minutes.
  5. Let cake cool in pans about 10 minutes then remove from pans and cool on a cooling rack until completely cooled. I froze mine at this point until ready to assemble the cake.
