What Makes This Chocolate Cake So Special?
Yes, this triple chocolate layer cake is essentially a large chocolate cake. But the different layers that reveal themselves once the cake is cut into takes it over the edge. It is far more exciting than a typical chocolate cake.
The cake is tender, very very moist, and springy thanks to the tenderizing effects of buttermilk and using oil rather than butter. The chocolate flavor is deep, intense, and comes from both cocoa powder and coffee. Rest assured, the cake doesn’t taste like coffee. The coffee simply intensifies and rounds out the chocolate flavor.
