Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate Cake

I am really enjoying this blog, and, posting a lot of 'non-business' things.  Here is a recipe for a chocolate cake, that looks and sounds absolutely yummy.  I just got the recipe today, so, I haven't tried it yet.  If you make it, let me know how it turns out.  Mmmmm!!!!


1 pkg. devil's food or chocolate cake mix
1 1/3 c. brewed coffee (room temperature)
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 eggs
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips


1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. shortening
4 c. confectioners sugar
3/4 c. baking cocoa
1/4 tsp. almond extract
7 Tbsp. brewed coffee, divided (room temperature)
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cake: In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, coffee, oil, and eggs; beat on low for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into 2 greased and floured 8 inch cake pans. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in pans for 5 minutes. Invert onto cooling rack. Go immediately to next step.

Sprinkle each cake layer with ¼ cup chocolate chips; when melted, gently spread chocolate over layers. Place layers in refrigerator to chill before frosting.

Frosting: Cream butter, shortening, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat in cocoa and extract. Add 5 tablespoons coffee, 1 at a time; beat until light and fluffy. Spread between layers and over top and sides of cake.

In a saucepan, heat chocolate chips and remaining coffee until melted; stir until smooth. Pour over cake; carefully spread over the top, allowing it to drizzle down the side.
