Made this cake at 2 p.m. for a 5 p.m. christmas dinner today...Substituted coffee for water and soiur cream for buttermilk. Omitted cinnamon and added 2 tsp. vanilla, as well as 1/2 tsp. salt- I used unsalted butter. I boiled the coffee, butter and cocoa to melt butter, then cooled a bit and whisked in eggs, sour cream and dry ingredients- right in the saucepan. Before baking, I topped the batter with 1 c. chocolate chips. After it came out of the oven and cooled a bit, I topped with a sour cream/chocolate frosting (12 oz. melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 tsp. vanilla), then sprinkled homemade brown sugar/cinnamon struessel topping I made in 15 min. on a cookie sheet and broke into bits. Chilled the cake until dessert time and it was perfect!
