Moist Amish Chocolate Cake Recipe (You Won't Believe the Secret Ingredient) by Tiffany Zook
My sister-in-law added this chocolate cake recipe to the Weavertown School Family Cookbook more than 20 years ago. This rich Amish chocolate cake recipe is a family favorite. Want to know the secret ingredient? Hint: Brew two cups of coffee before you begin baking. Drink the second cup of coffee while it bakes (or save it to eat with the cake).
The moist chocolate cake recipe is made with flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, vegetable oil, hot brewed coffee, milk and eggs. Mix all the ingredients together (just one bowl!) and bake in a 13x9-inch cake pan for about 35 minutes.
Try serving this moist chocolate cake in a bowl, soaking it in milk, topping it with ice cream – or frost it with this easy five-ingredient chocolate frosting. I sometimes take a very sharp serrated knife and cut the cake into two or three layers (as pictured) so I can frost in between the layers, too. You can never have too much chocolate frosting! This will be your new favorite chocolate cake recipe for dessert or midnight snacking.
