2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 cup coffee – cooled but not cold
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
¼ c chocolate chips
1 c heavy whipping cream
1/3 – ½ c powdered sugar
¼ t salt
1 t vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour two round pans or one 9×13 pan.
Sift all dry ingredients and then slowly folding into wet.
Test at 40 minutes for round pans, or 50 minutes for 9×13 pan.
(If you want a vanilla one then just don’t add the chocolate and put the vanilla in to taste)
Melt the chocolate and whipping cream together. Set aside.
Mix butter and then add powdered sugar and vanilla. After you’ve mixed that then pour in the chocolate mixture. Mix it a little and then put it in the fridge for 20 minutes. When it’s cool then you can whip it again and it’ll actually look like regular buttercream icing.
