- 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- 2 Cups White Granulated Sugar
- 1 3/4 Cups Flour
- 3/4 Cup Hershey's Cocoa Powder
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup Freshly Brewed Dark Roasted Coffee
Mix all the dry ingredients together and create a well within the ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients into the well and fold in the dry ingredients until they are combined. At this point, you can pour the mix into the pan and bake it for 30-45 minutes. I use the toothpick test for my baking and as soon as it comes out clean remove the item from the heat. The cake lasted less than twenty four hours in my house. It was by far the tastiest cake from scratch that I have tried. I topped mine with a Marshmallow Creme frosting that I will post in the next few days.
With this being my first blog, I would appreciate any comments towards improvements. If you, as the reader, would like to see pictures along with the directions let me know, or if you feel that I am leaving certain instructions out please do tell. I want this to become a blog that is accessible to both the seasoned cook and the cook just starting to cook from scratch.
Enjoy the delicious chocolate heaven!
