Raya sent this recipe out a while ago, and since so many ppl from this group gave amazing reviews for it, I decided to take a chance and make it. SO glad I did, this is the best chocolate cake recipe that I have ever made, and I have tried gazillions of them.
Here's a pic of the cake as it just came out of the oven!! The smell was just amazing!!!
How pretty is this....Raya just sent me a pic of her beautifully decorated famous Chocolate Cake!!
Sprinkled with some powdered sugar....so pretty!!!
RAYA'S BLACK MAGIC CAKE

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup strong brewed coffee

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans or one 9x13 inch pan.
- In large bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre.
- Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed. Batter will be thin. Pour into prepared pans.
