Black Magic Chocolate Cake

Black Magic Chocolate Cake
My wonderful Aunt Renee used to use brewed coffee in place of the water in this cake. It made a great cake but I don't drink coffee and, after I found out what she was putting in it, I stopped eating hers. I think the water works. It does for me and then I don't have issues.) I still think she was a great cook and I still love her.
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cup sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 c water
1 c buttermilk
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 tsp real vanilla extract
Chocolate Frosting
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 oz melted unsweetened chocolate, cooled
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed for two minutes. Batter will be thin. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x13 pan or two 9 inch cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes for a 9x13, or 30-35 minutes for layer pans. Combine frosting ingredients and mix with a hand or stand mixer. Spread frosting on cooled cakes.
