Old Fashion Chocolate Cake

My Mama had this recipe since I was a kid, and I haven't been a kid for a long time, so this is pretty old.  Not a dark chocolate cake, but moist and delicious.  Please, have with a cold glass of milk.  My Mama never made frosting for this cake, but just added a thick dusting of powder sugar.  This cake taste better with age.  So make one day ahead if you can hold out, and eat the next day. 

Old Fashion Chocolate Cake

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt
2 sticks unsalted butter room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter milk (room temperature)
1/2 very hot coffee
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour a 9 x 13 cake pan. In a bowl mix flour, baking soda and pinch salt with a whisk. Set aside. 

Heat coffee until very hot.  Remove from heat source and add 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels.  Mix with spoon to melt chocolate completely.

In mixer beat butter with sugars until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, continue to beat until creamy and fluffy.  On low speed slowly add chocolate/coffee mixture to creamed butter mixture.  Mix well.  Add flour and buttermilk, alternating in 2 batches. Add vanilla.  Mix well.  When batter is thoroughly mixed pour into prepared pan.  Bake for about 35-45 minutes.  Use a tooth pick to test for doneness.  I have baked this cake in a different ovens and it took up to 55 minutes.  So toothpick is recommended.
