Easy & Simply Delicious Chocolate Cake


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup regular cocoa or 1/3 cup dark cocoa
  • 1 cup hot coffee
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup milk or cold coffee

Grease & flour a 9 x 13 pan or 2 round 8 or 9 inch cake pans. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, hot coffee,baking soda & eggs in a mixing bowl. Add baking powder, salt, oil & milk or cold coffee. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 - 45 minutes depending on pan size. The batter will be very thin but bakes up wonderfully. Test for with a toothpick.

NOTES* This recipe is VERY versatile and can be made gluten free, lactose free and egg free by substituting your favorite dietary required ingredients.

If you want a stronger coffee flavor add 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules to the hot coffee. Then top it with cappuccino mousse (off the shelf mix works great).

I use it as the base for turtle cake.

For Chocolate Raspberry cake add about 2 teaspoons raspberry flavoring to the cake batter. Then use a can of prepared fudge frosting (or make your own) and add another teaspoon raspberry flavoring to it after softening it in the microwave for a few seconds and you have chocolate raspberry cake.

Bake it in a jelly roll pan and you have moist cake type brownies.

The possibilities are endless. Just use your imagination!
