Ingredients

  • 2

    cups granulated sugar

  • 2

    cups self-rising flour

  • 1

    cup butter

  • 1

    cup strong black coffee

  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2

    eggs

  • ½

    cup buttermilk

  • Chocolate frosting:

  • ¼

    cup butter

  • 4

    tablespoons buttermilk

  • 3

    tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

  • cups powdered sugar

  • Turtle topping:

  • ½

    cup chopped pecans

  • 1

    cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1

    cup caramel sauce, to drizzle

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a jelly roll pan or a 9×13-inch baking pan. If using the 9×13 pan your cake will be thicker and a little super fudge like. Both options are delicious. In a large bowl, combine self-rising flour and granulated sugar. Set aside. 2. In a saucepan, combine 1 cup butte, 1 cup coffee, and 1/3 cup cocoa. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour into the prepared dry ingredients. Using a hand-held mixer, mix on medium speed until wet and dry ingredients are thoroughly combined. Add eggs and the 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Mix on medium speed for another minute or so, until well combined. 3. Pour into baking pan, and bake for 25-30 minutes. When cake is done baking, a toothpick or fork inserted into the middle of the cake should come out clean. 4. Prepare the frosting. In a medium saucepan, combine 1/4 cup butter, 4 tablespoons buttermilk, and 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. 5. Remove from heat and use a wire whisk to gradually mix in powdered sugar, a 1/2 cup at a time. 6. Spread or pour the warm frosting over the cake. While the cake is still warm, sprinkle with chopped pecans, and chocolate chips. Drizzle with caramel sauce. Tip: If you don’t have buttermilk, no worries. Mix 1/2 cup milk with 2 tsp vinegar or lemon juice. Let it sit a few minutes, before you add it to the other ingredients.
