This is a delightful chocolate cake recipe. I often make this into cupcakes and it originally came from an old "soul-food" little cookbook I bought when living in Dothan, Alabama. I found it to be one of the best chocolate cake recipes ever!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9" x 13" baking pan or into a muffin tin which has been prepared with paper liners. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add hot coffee, oil, eggs and vanilla, mix until smooth. Pour into the prepared pan or muffin tin. Bake for 30- 45 minutes or into the muffin tins, 3/4 full. Frost with Buttercream Frosting.
