Why I Love This Recipe

I cut this recipe out of the newspaper eons ago and just made it recently. It turned out to be a "keeper"!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 egg
2/3 c. vegetable oil
1 c. buttermilk
2 c. flour
1 3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. baking soda
1 c. hot coffee

Frosting:
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. milk
5 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. caramel topping
1 c. toasted pecans


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 13-inch pan.


Combine egg, oil and buttermilk. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Combine the egg mixture and the flour mixture, mixing well. Slowly mix in hot coffee. Turn into prepared pan and bake 40 to 45 minutes. Frost when cooled.


Frosting: Mix sugar and milk in a saucepan, add butter and bring to a boil. Put chocolate chips in a bowl, pour hot mixture over them and mix until smooth. Spread over cooled cake. Drizzle caramel topping over the frosting and crunch toasted pecans over the caramel with your hand.
