How to Make My Awesome Chocolate Cake Recipe...


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 4 - 9 inch pans, by spraying with a non stick baking spray such as Pam with Flour or Baker's Joy.

    For Cupcakes...this will make 48 cupcakes.
  2. In mixing bowl...add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using the powder attachment, combine the ingredients thoroughly for about 1 minute.
  3. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla to flour and mix on medium until well blended together. ***IF you are using yogurt, this is when you want to add it.

    With the mixer on Low....Slowly add the coffee. Mix for about 1 - 2 minutes.

    ***Note*** This will make the batter very thin. It's ok. It's supposed to be that way.

    Remove from pans when cooled.
  5. For Cupcakes...fill cupcake papers 1/2 full and bake for 12 - 15 minutes. (depending on your oven)
  6. Frost and decorate cake, or cupcakes, as desired.
