For the Cake

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour two 9-inch round baking pans. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.Add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes. You should have a thin batter. Pour batter evenly into prepared pans.


Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove cakes from pans to wire racks.

Cool completely before frosting.


Prepare the Frosting

Place chopped chocolate in a medium mixing bowl and set aside. Place whipping cream and butter in saucepan and cook over medium heat to just a boil. Pour cream mixture over chocolate; whisk vigorously until chocolate is melted and smooth.

Cover and refrigerate for an hour. Remove from fridge and stir; refrigerate about 1 more hour or until spreading consistency. Spread about 1/4 to 1/3 of frosting on one cake layer; top with the other cake layer and spread frosting on top and sides of cake. Cut and Serve.
