1 1/4 cups flour

2 cups sugar

3/4 cups cocoa

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

1 cup strong black coffee (brewed, not grinds)

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

Dump everything in a bowl, mix, pour into a sheet pan that has been buttered and lightly floured. Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Frost with Ridiculously Easy Chocolate Glaze below, also from “Dinner: A Love Story.”

Ridiculously Easy Chocolate Glaze

Dump a small bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 6 ounces) in a heatproof bowl. Meanwhile heat 1 cup of heavy cream so it’s bubbling but not boiling. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit about 2 minutes without stirring. Whisk together and pour over cake that has been set over a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil or parchment.
