1 cup granulated sugar

4 large Eggland's Best eggs, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1/3 cup heavy cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. Lightly grease a Bundt cake pan.
  3. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl twice. Set aside.
  4. Dissolve the instant coffee in the buttermilk. Set aside.
  5. Add butter to the bowl of a standing mixer and mix on medium for 2 minutes. Scrape down sides.
  6. Next, gradually add sugar to the butter and mix for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides.
  7. Add one egg at a time to the mixer (wait until the egg is combined before adding the next, about 20 seconds).

  14. Heat heavy cream in a glass microwaveable bowl for 1~1.5 minutes watching carefully not to boil over.
