This Moist Amish Chocolate Cake Recipe Is a Family Tradition (You Won't Believe the Secret Ingredient)

My sister-in-law added this beauty to the Weavertown School Family Cookbook more than 20 years ago. It's a family favorite. Try serving it in a bowl, soaking it in milk, topping it with ice cream – or frost it with this easy five-ingredient chocolate frosting. 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).

comfort food, for sure. Making anything from scratch tastes better.

I have a cute story about this cake. A few months ago we went to a lake house with extended family for the weekend and I brought this cake. My brother in law who doesn't even like chocolate cake tried some and I guess later told his wife it was the best cake he ever had and he had seconds which never happened. Sadly he passed away this month and his wife asked me to make it for the memorial service!

Heather, sorry to hear of your brother-in-law’s passing, but glad you have a fun memory about this cake. It’s a cool morning in Texas, I think I’ll bake it today in his honor.

That's so nice. His name was Mark if you want to send good thought while making it!
