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. 

You'll need:

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

Here's how to make it:

  1. Mix all ingredients together. 
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F in a greased 9x13-inch pan for 35 minutes. 

Drink the second cup of coffee while it bakes (or save it to eat with the cake). Enjoy!
