Black Magic Cake
Super spooky dark chocolate cake. Suitable for all your black magic get-togethers.
This magic chocolate cake made with buttermilk and strong black coffee is a dark, rich treat that will become a new family favorite.
This is a very nice chocolate cake, very moist. It's better than my usual scratch chocolate, so this one will be "it" from here on. Followed the recipe except bumped up the cocoa, used coconut oil, and followed reviewers suggestion of vinegar in the milk in place of buttermilk, which I don't usually have on hand. No need for frosting for me and my husband - this is sweet enough. Thanks for posting.
Danger! Danger! This recipe is awesome, the best chocolate cake I've ever made from scratch! I did not have buttermilk, so I looked on a site for the substitute and it said to use 3/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup water to equal 1 cup of buttermilk (this is the only way I'll make it since I ALWAYS have sour cream on hand and I never have buttermilk!,) this cake is to die for, even without frosting. ,I have tried several chocolate cake recipes, but they always turned out dry. This is a perfectly moist cake recipe. I also brewed 1 cup of Gloria Jean's Hazelnut coffee and it was strong enough for me since I am also going to use a coffee frosting to make cake balls :-) UPDATE 9/13/14: I used this recipe for coconut poke cake and it was awesome!! After I baked the Black Magic Cake I poked holes in the cake with a chopstick while cake was still hot, then poured a can of cream of coconut over it. After the cake cooled I refrigerated it. Right before serving I frosted it with whip cream and topped with flaked coconut.Y
One of the best chocolate cakes I have ever made. I used cocoa that I got at an Amish Grocery called "Black Cocoa Powder XTra Rich" it is really dark and the cake came out almost true black. I did use wax paper in the bottom of my pans and had no trouble getting the cake out. Thanks for a great recipe
This is an amazing cake I have made it several times now and everyone loves it this time I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder, it just seemed like a good idea... and it was!
Perfect...perfect...perfect!! And it does get better with time. Try to make it a day before you want it. To die for!!
This is one of the best chocolate cake recipes I've come across. I bake cakes all the time, and I'm always looking for the next best cake recipe... but this is one I keep going back to. It is very moist and delicious. I line my cake pans with parchment paper to make removal a breeze.
