I had been searching for the perfect chocolate cake recipe and found Hersheys Chocolate cake recipe but decided to make some changes to it and here’s what I came up with. I hope you like it!

Mix all dry ingredients except cocoa powder.
Add cocoa powder to hot coffee and mix until it becomes a thick paste.
Add buttermilk, vegetable oil, and eggs to dry ingredients.
Turn mixer on and add some of the cocoa/coffee paste until batter is smooth, it will be really liquidy. Don’t worry because it will bake up perfectly.
