Spiced Devil’s Food Cake


One of my mom’s friends gave her this recipe when I was a child and it has been a family favorite ever since. When your “chocolate sweet tooth” acts up, this really hits the spot!

Ingredients
1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup buttermilk

MOCHA ICING:
3-3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
6 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Toasted whole or chopped almonds, optional

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.
Sift together all dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes before removing from pans.
In a small bowl, combine all icing ingredients except nuts. Spread frosting between layers and over the top and sides of cake. If desired, top with almonds.
