A very delicious, dense and moist no fail recipe of chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream frosting
Preheat the oven to 350 deg F . Line the circular baking pans with parchment paper and spray oil or butter .
Combine the dry ingredients namely sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl after sieving so that they are mixed well.You can also incorporate using a whisk.
Make a well in the center and add the eggs and buttermilk and whisk it well. I used a stand mixer for the same.
Add hot coffee, oil and vanilla and continue whisking until it is incorporated well.
Divide the batter into the two pans by using a measuring cup .Bake the cake for 30 to 35 mins or until a tooth pick comes out almost clean or with a few moist crumbs.
Cool the cakes in the pan and later on the wire-rack .
Once completely cooled, frost and decorate as you like .
Melt the butter and add cocoa powder and whisk it until smooth
Gradually add the powdered sugar .Alternate with milk and beat until light and fluffy.
Stir in Vanilla and salt.
Place the cake on a cake stand with the flat side on the top.
Using a spatula , spread the frosting on the top evenly .
Place the second cake on top of the first cake and spread the frosting evenly.
Frost the sides completely using the offset spatula .
Decorate with Hershey chocolate candies and strawberries if you like.
Delicious chocolate cake is ready to be served. It tastes best when slightly warmed up and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream . Enjoy!
