Ingredients:
Cake:
2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick of butter, room temperature
1 cup of brown sugar, packed
1 cup of granulated sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup of buttermilk
2 teaspoons of vanilla (I used Mexican)
4 squares of unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 cup of hot brewed espresso*

Creamy Espresso Frosting:
2 1/2 sticks of butter, room temperature
1 8 ounce block of cream cheese
2 tablespoons of vanilla
3 tablespoons of very cold espresso
1 teaspoon of salt
2 pounds of powdered sugar
Chocolate covered espresso beans, optional
If you know me personally, you know I love, love, love coffee. If you like or love coffee, you will not be disappointed.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 9 inch cake pans with parchment paper. Grease pans and parchment and dust with unsweetened cocoa powder.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine and aerate. Set aside.
Beat sugars and butter until light and fluffy at medium speed. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add buttermilk, vanilla and melted chocolate. Beat until combined. Alternate flour mixture and espresso mixing well after each addition. Pour evenly into prepared pans.
Bake for 35 minutes or until done. Cool on wire racks until room temperature. Frost.
*you can substitute 1 tablespoon of instant coffee mixed in very hot water in place of espresso.
Creamy Espresso Frosting:
Cream cheese and butter together until combined. Add vanilla and espresso and mix until combined. Add salt. Slowly add powdered sugar and scrape down sides of mixer. Frost and store cake in refrigerator. Enjoy!
