See how to make one of the moistest cakes around—and one of the spookiest. Black Magic Cake gets its unique color (and a caffeine boost) from a surprising liquid ingredient. Watch the video to see the best way to add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones. This cake requires buttermilk; if you don't have it on hand, the video tells you an easy way to make it using white vinegar and (you guessed it!) milk. This extra-dark cake is a favorite at Halloween, but it's so tasty you'll find other days to make it. An easy from-scratch cake, it's ready in 1 hour! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Black Magic Cake. For more ideas, check out the chocolate cake videos page.

Instead of using liquid buttermilk I recommend powder buttermilk . Just follow the directions on the can to make aliquid . This is much better than store brought liquid buttermilk and you can put the powder buttermilk in the freezer so you will always have buttermilk on hand. You can also use Kiefer .

Has anyone tried this? Just wondering how strong the coffee taste is as I love a moist chocolate cake, but am not a big fan of coffee.

why does the baker put her hand into the flour? That is not very sanitary.
