The Devil Made Me Do It Cake

My sister gave me a cookbook of gathered recipes she found for sale online at the Saint John Jewish Historical Society dating back from 1947; it's photocopied pages are stapled together. I decided to give one of the recipes a try. It's called Black Devil's Food Cake and the cake itself is very dark, moist and delicious.
The recipe is attributed to Goldie Rozovsky. Thanks Goldie. Your cake was yummy!

1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup hot coffee
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Combine cocoa and hot coffee. Mix sugar, butter, eggs and coffee and dry ingredients. Pour into a 9" square pan and bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes.
(I dusted with icing sugar.)

It looks great, I'll definitely give it a go. Old, simple, cookbooks like that one are great and yet they are so often overlooked.

Add a cup of tea & 'perfection'.

I like your name for the cake - i.e., "The Devil Made Me Do It Cake". Appropriate because this cake looks sinfully delicious.

I love those plain chocolate cakes with liquid coffee as an ingredient. They don't taste mocha-ish, but they are usually dark and good!
