Easy Coffee-Chocolate Cake

Recipe by Deena Heisler


  • 3 cups flour

  • 2.5 cups sugar

  • 1 cup cocoa

  • 1 cup oil

  • 2 cups cold black coffee

  • 4 eggs

  • 3 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl

  • In a separate large bowl, beat sugar and oil. Then beat in eggs one at a time, using an electric mixer.

  • Add 1/3 of the coffee, and 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the egg/sugar/oil mixture. Mix until incorporated and repeat with the remaining 2/3 of coffee and dry ingredients, working in 1/3 batches. Be careful not to overbeat the batter.

  • Add the vanilla to the batter and bake in a greased bundt pan at 300 for 30-45 minutes, until the cake is mostly cooked, but still a little moist- be careful not to overcook!

  • If you’d like, go ahead and spoon a chocolate-coffee glaze (recipe below) over the cake

Chocolate-Coffee Glaze:

  • 2 cups confectioners sugar (sift or strain to avoid lumps)

  • 6 tablespoons cocoa

  • 6 tablespoons coffee

  • 4 tbsp oil

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • Add hot water-start with 3tsp and add more little by little until it reaches a glaze-like consistency
