FUDGE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Heat oven to 325 ºF. 

Grease two 8 inch layer pans (line layer pans with parchment or waxed paper before greasing and flouring...I use Pam for Baking).

In a small saucepan, combine:

1 cup water
1 teaspoon instant coffee 
½ cup cocoa
2 sticks butter

Bring to a boil, then cool to room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, combine:

2 cups self-rising flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar

Blend well to combine.

Pour cocoa mixture over flour mixture and mix on low until blended. 

Add:

2 large eggs
½ cup buttermilk*
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix on medium speed one minute.
*(make your own buttermilk by combining 1/2 Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice with 1/2 cup milk. Let stand for 5 minutes)

Pour into pans. Bake until cake tests done with a toothpick.



I used the Fudge Chocolate Cake for the body of R2D2 in this fun cake I made.
See more about how I made the cake and decorated for the Star Wars Party here.
