Ingredients

  • 4 oz unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup hot strong coffee
  • 3/4 cup black cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 2 cups all purpose flour

Instructions

  • Grease and add cocoa (instead of flour) to the bottom of 2 8 inch round cake pans.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine butter, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a hand mixer). Cream until thoroughly combined.
  • Add eggs one at a time, mix well after each addition.
  • In a small bowl, slowly pour the hot coffee into the black cocoa, whisking well. Add the cream and whisk until combined.
  • Slowly add the cocoa mixture to the creamed butter and beat well.
  • A little at a time, add the flour and beat well after each addition.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Be careful...this cake can be over-baked quite easily and get a bit dry. Cool.
