  • Have all ingredients ready (the dries, chocolate coffee liquid, buttermilk, vanilla, oil, and sugar).
  • Once eggs are foamy, add the sugar, followed by the oil and vanilla, followed by the chocolate mixture. Whisk till combined.
  • Alternate adding the dries and buttermilk slowly (dry, buttermilk, dry, buttermilk, dry).
  • Fold the mixture together a few times, being sure the sides and bottom are all homogeneous.
  • TO BAKE: Be sure to rotate your cake halfway through the time to ensure it bakes evenly! 13”x9” will take 30 minutes; two 8” rounds will take 30 minutes; and 24 cupcakes will take 15 minutes.
