Easy and delicious recipe for a sponge cake that had a wetback and intense chocolate flavor without being extremely sweet.

The secret to this cake is that it has coffee, yes, but so far nobody has noticed. The coffee adds a different flavor note that is NOT box-flavored homemade. The cake is flavored with chocolate, but more special. People say it is addictive.


2 cups Self Rising Flour; (Presto)
2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa (Chocolate without sugar); (Hershey Good for Baking)
2 large Eggs
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Coffee
