Danger! Danger! This recipe is awesome, the best chocolate cake I've ever made from scratch! I did not have buttermilk, so I looked on a site for the substitute and it said to use 3/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup water to equal 1 cup of buttermilk (this is the only way I'll make it since I ALWAYS have sour cream on hand and I never have buttermilk!,) this cake is to die for, even without frosting. ,I have tried several chocolate cake recipes, but they always turned out dry. This is a perfectly moist cake recipe. I also brewed 1 cup of Gloria Jean's Hazelnut coffee and it was strong enough for me since I am also going to use a coffee frosting to make cake balls :-)
UPDATE 9/13/14: I used this recipe for coconut poke cake and it was awesome!! After I baked the Black Magic Cake I poked holes in the cake with a chopstick while cake was still hot, then poured a can of cream of coconut over it. After the cake cooled I refrigerated it. Right before serving I frosted it with whip cream and topped with flaked coconut.YUM!! Thanx for this great recipe!
