Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) and grease pans. Line bottoms with rounds of parchment paper.
Step 2
Finely chop Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (1/2 cup) and in a bowl combine with Coffee (1 1/2 cups) . Let mixture stand, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
Step 3
Into a large bowl sift together Granulated Sugar (3 cups) , All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups) , Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1 1/2 cups) , Baking Soda (1/2 Tbsp) , Baking Powder (3/4 tsp) , and Salt (1 1/4 tsp) .
Step 4
In another large bowl with an electric mixer beat Large Eggs (3) until thickened slightly and lemon colored.
Step 5
Slowly add Vegetable Oil (3/4 cup) , Buttermilk (1 1/2 cups) , Vanilla Extract (3/4 tsp) , and melted chocolate mixture to eggs, beating until combined well. Add sugar mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined.
Step 6
Divide batter between pans, being sure not to fill pans higher than 2/3 full.
Step 7
Bake in middle of oven until a tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Step 8
Meanwhile, make the icing: In a small saucepan over direct heat set on low, melt the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (2/3 cup) . Stir in the Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/4 cup) . Stir in the Eggs (3) , whisking constantly.
Step 9
Cook over low to medium-low until thick. Stir in the Butter (1/4 cup) one tablespoon at a time. Set aside to cool. Transfer to a glass measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring.
Step 10
Cool layers completely in pans on racks, about 10 minutes.
Step 11
Run a thin knife around edges of pans and invert layers onto racks. Remove parchment paper and cool layers completely. Cake layers may be made 1 day ahead and kept, wrapped well in plastic wrap, at room temperature.
Step 12
If you are making a layer cake, spread icing over one cake layer. Top layer with other cake layer. Pour icing on top of top layer and with an off-set spatula spread it all over the sides. Cake keeps, covered and chilled, 3 days. Bring cake to room temperature before serving.
