Simple Saturday - One bowl chocolate cake

This cake recipe is about as easy as using a box cake mix - AND I can pronounce all the ingredients. I rarely have buttermilk so "make" it by putting 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice in the measuring cup and fill it to make one cup. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to sour and use as buttermilk.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 cup hot water

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Stir in oil, buttermilk and eggs. Add water and stir until combined. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 35-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely and frost with a favorite frosting recipe.

I'm thinking I need to make this using hot, strong coffee in place of the hot water!
