  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup strong black coffee (can substitute with hot water)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease two 9-inch round cake pans with butter and dust with flour.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the eggs until they are light and frothy. Add in the buttermilk, coffee (or hot water), vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

  4. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until the batter is smooth and well combined.

  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.

  6. Bake the cakes in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  7. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in their pans for 10 minutes. Then, remove the cakes from the pans and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

  8. While the cakes are cooling, make the frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until it is light and fluffy. Add in the cocoa powder, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix well until the frosting is smooth and creamy.

  9. Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one cake layer onto a serving plate. Spread a generous layer of frosting on top of the cake. Place the second cake layer on top of the frosting.

  10. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting.

  11. Slice and serve the cake, and enjoy your delicious fudgy chocolate creation!
