Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Preparation

  1. 1. Beat sugar and butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until yellow disappears after each addition. Beat in vanilla and almond extracts.
  2. 2. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl; add to sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at medium-low speed just until blended after each addition. Beat 1/3 cup hot water into batter just until smooth. (Batter will be thick.) Use immediately.
