I made this cake yesterday and have to let everyone know how GOOD it is.I decided to do half a recipe so put it in a loaf pan. Used one and one third cups sugar,made my buttermilk by putting one tablespoon white vinegar in a half cup measure and fill I it almost to a half cup,I saved enough room in the cup to add 2 tablespoons cooled brewed coffee and omitted the instant coffee. Used three eggs...also when you beat the sugar and eggs,really beat the heck out of it,with my hand mixer I beat it on high for about four and a half minutes and beat after each egg about a half minute,after reading another reviewers tip..this process comes in handy for a lot of cakes,it DOES make a difference so don't rush this part. Also being half recipe I didn't bake quite as long. My cake did split on top but this always makes it taste better to me and looks pretty. Also this cake doesn't need icing,is sweet enough without it and moist also. It has almost a brownie taste..I have a couple of favorite chocolate cake recipes and this one is joining them..thanks for posting this recipe.
