Yield 12-14 slices

Number Of Ingredients 17

1 cup buttermilk
5 tablespoons instant coffee or espresso powder
1 cup butter
2 1/2 cups sugar
5 eggs, separated, one yolk reserved for icing
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
For the Icing:
1/2 cup butter
1 egg yolk (reserved from cake)
1 pound powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons coffee or espresso (liquid)


  • Pre-Heat Oven to 350º and butter and flour three 8 or 9 inch cake pans. Stir buttermilk and instant coffee together and set aside. In the bowl of a mixer thoroughly cream together butter and sugar, then add the egg yolks and vanilla and beat well. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Add the dry ingredients and the butter mixture alternately with the buttermilk-coffee mixture. Beat the five egg whites until stiff peaks form and gently fold into the batter. Divide batter between the three pans and bake for about 25 - 30 minutes, or until a tester inserted int he middle of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pans for 30 minutes, then turn out onto cooling racks and allow to cool completely. For the Icing: Whip together the butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, coffee, vanilla and egg yolk until fluffy and light. Frost the cake, using icing between each layer and around the sides and on top. Enjoy!

I would love to try this cake, but I don't have a stand mixer. Is there a way to make it without one?

I followed the recipe exactly, but my cake didn't rise properly. I'm not sure what went wrong.

The cake was a bit dry for my taste. I think I might add some extra milk or butter next time.
