Cafe Mocha Cake w/ Coffee Butter Cream Frosting

1 C brewed, cooled coffee
1/2 C cocoa powder
2 C flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C butter, softened to room temp
1 C & 2 T sugar
2 eggs
3/4 tsp vanilla

1. Fill steamer 1/3-1/2 full with water and bring to boil.
2. In bowl, combine sugar and wet ingredients with whisk. Add dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.
3. Split batter between two buttered/greased foil pans.
4. Steam each pan for 25 minutes after reducing heat to medium high.

1/2 C butter, softened to room temp
1/8 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
3 T cream or whole milk
1/4 C brewed, cooled coffee
2 1/2 C powdered sugar
3 T coffee creamer... if you have it... if not, just use 3 T powdered sugar.

Whisk all ingredients vigorously until creamy and smooth.
I cheated and used my blender after combining all ingredients. I just put small 1 cup batches in and blended until smooth and creamy. :)

Let cakes cool before frosting. Enjoy! :)
