Thumbs up Katie's Black Devil's Food Cake TNT

Sorry, BettyR, I promised I'd post this several days ago, but time got away from me. Here's the chocolate cake recipe I told you about:


KATIE’S BLACK DEVIL’S FOOD CAKE
(Serves 10 to 12)
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
cup cocoa
tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1 egg
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1 cup boiling strong coffee


Grease and flour one 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Set aside.

Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add egg, oil and milk and stir until well blended. Gently stir boiling coffee into mixture. This will make a very thin batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. Frost as desired or serve dusted with powdered sugar. Note: To make sour milk, stir 1 tablespoon lemon juice into 1 cup milk. Let stand a few minutes to allow the milk to curdle.

Enjoy!

Oh Katie this looks luscious. I may have to make this today. I have a cup of buttermilk I need to use up.

It's wonderful, Alix. And when I say black devil's food, I mean BLACK! It's like coal. And so moist you won't believe it.

Thats how I like them! Thanks again Katie. I may incorporate this cake into my famous chocolate torte if it works out well.

Thank you!! My son is asking for another one of those chocolate cakes, I'm going to give this one a try.

Thanks for the recipe.

Anyone making this cake for the first time, it is wonderful..My family just loves it. We serve it with just a dusting of powdered sugar...
when it is all put together before baking, it will look watery, don't think you did something wrong, pop it in the oven and bake, and be prepared to not want to share it It is the BEST!

This may be our Labor Day dessert. We still have triple chocolate ice cream and the kids would love all that chocolate. They can all go home right after dessert.
