SUPER MOIST DARK CHOCOLATE CAKE


Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 cups ( 285 grams ) all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/3 cups ( 470 grams ) superfine sugar
  • 3/4 cup ( 90 grams ) dark Dutch-process cocoa powder ( I use Cacao Barry Extra Brute )
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ( 12 grams ) baking soda _ ( Diana bubuh 2 tsp )
  • 2 teaspoons ( 10 grams ) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ( 8 grams ) salt
  • 1 1/4 cups ( 300 ml ) buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup ( 180 ml ) brewed coffee or espresso
  • 2/3 cup ( 160 ml ) vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon ( 15 ml ) pure vanilla extract


Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare three 7-inch round cake pans with nonstick spray and parchment rounds.
  2. In bowl of electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, sift all dry ingredients, including sugar. Combine eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla in a measuring cup and beat lightly with a fork.
  3. Add milk mixture to the dry ingredients mix for 1 minute on medium speed ( you may need the plastic splash-guard that comes with mixer ). Divide batter evenly among prepared pans--each pan should contain about 600 grams of batter.
  4. Bake the first 2 layers for 20 minutes and rotate pans in oven. Continue to bake until toothpick or skewer comes almost clean ( a few crumbs ), about 5 more minutes. Cool on wire racks for 20 minutes. Repeat with remaining layer, and then gently invert onto racks until completely cool.
