Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 3/4 cups 7.9 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I used Hershey's Dark
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Folgers Gourmet Selections Caramel Drizzle coffee

Caramel Drizzle and Garnish

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup sifted confectioners sugar plus a little extra if needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12 cup Bundt pan with flour-added cooking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder and stir well with a spoon, mashing up any lumps of brown sugar.
  • Make a well in the center and add the eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Stir well, then stir everything together with a spoon or silicone scraper.
  • Pour the hot coffee in and stir until mixed, then with a handheld mixer set on medium speed for about 1 1/2 minutes or until well blended.
  • Pour into pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Let cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then carefully turn onto a wire rack set over paper towels.
  • Prepare Caramel Drizzle. In a small nonstick saucepan, heat butter over medium until slightly melted. Stir in brown sugar and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring once or twice, for 30 seconds. Turn off heat. Stir in cream, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and salt and stir until smooth. Drizzle a little over the cake. If it sinks in or seems to thin, add another tablespoon of confectioners sugar and stir a little more. Quickly drizzle over the cake while the icing is still soft -- you have to work quickly or it will start to set in the pan.
  • Put the chocolate chips in a large heavy duty freezer bag (must be freezer -- not regular type) and microwave bag of chips for 30 seconds. Massage the bag a little and push partially melted chips down toward the bottom corner. Microwave for another 10 seconds and repeat until chips are fully melted. Snip a tiny corner off the bottom of the bag and pipe melted chocolate decoratively over caramel-drizzled cake.

Notes

This recipe is adapted from the old Hershey's "Black Magic" cake. Normally I use their dark (Dutch processed) cocoa, but I only had about half a cup left so I used a mixture of Hershey's Extra Dark and Hershey's Natural.
