Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch cake pan.
  2. Whisk buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to buttermilk mixture and whisk in hot water. Spread batter in prepared cake pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean or with moist crumbs, about 35 minutes. Let cool.
  4. Beat confectioners' sugar, cream, butter, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl using an electric mixer until frosting is smooth and creamy. Spread onto cooled cake.

The cake recipe itself was great. I was concerned that it might not be quite chocolately enough with just the cocoa powder, so I took a dark chocolate bar and grated it into the dry ingredients before mixing them into the wet. The cake was very moist and everyone loved it. The frosting was very, very sweet--too sweet for me. Again, it wasn't very chocolatey so I actually almost doubled the amount of cocoa powder, but I think when I make this cake again I'll use a different frosting recipe. I did like the frosting consistency, though.

I thought this cake was really moist, rich and chocolaty. I loved the frosting - a combo of whipped cream and buttercream. next time I think I will make it in two 9-inch pans instead of the 13 x 9. It is a tad dense.

Finally took it out after 45 minutes and still wasn't done.
