  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Lightly grease two 9″ round baking pans or a 13″ x 9″ rectangle pan.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil, vanilla and CBD oil.
  4. Stir in the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt (I like to pre-mix these in a separate bowl).
  5. In a round pan bake for 30-35 minutes. In the rectangular pan bake for 35-40 minutes. Use the toothpick method to check if ready – do not overbake!
  6. Remove from and place on racks to cool.

The perfect topping for your dark chocolate cake!

  • 3 Tblsp Cocoa
  • 1 Tblsp Warm water

  • 1-1/2 C Powdered Sugar
  1. Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat and stir in the cocoa, water, liqueur and CBD oil.
  2. Slowly add the powdered sugar and keep mixing until smooth enough for spreading. If too thick add a little bit more warm water.
