Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Melt 3 oz. chocolate as directed on package; cool 10 min.
Meanwhile, mix flour and baking soda in small bowl. Combine water and vinegar in liquid measure.
Beat 1/2 cup butter and granulated sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Add melted chocolate; mix until blended. Add flour mixture alternately with water mixture, beating after each addition until blended. Pour into greased and floured 13x9-inch pan.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
Meanwhile, chop remaining chocolate; place in bowl with remaining butter. Pour coffee over chocolate and butter; stirring until chocolate is completely melted (mixture may look curdled). Stir in powdered sugar until smooth and blended. Spread over cake.
Prepare as directed with margarine.
For a contemporary twist, stir in 2 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Coffee grounds to frosting to boost the coffee flavor and add some texture.
If your frosting is too thin, stir in more powdered sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. If frosting is too thick, stir in additional brewed coffee, 1 tsp. at time, until desired consistency is reached.
