How to Cook!



For The Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Butter 2 9-inch circular baking pans line the bottom with parchment paper and dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, soda and salt- whisk until incorporated.
  3. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add in the eggs, buttermilk. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add the coffee, oil, and vanilla and continue mixing until everything is well incorporated.
  5. Divide the batter between the two pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  6. Cool the cakes completely before frosting.

For Ganache

  1. Bring heavy cream to a simmer on the stove top, stirring occasionally. Just as soon as you see a simmer, remove from heat and pour over chocolate chips, swirling the bowl to make sure all chips are covered.
  2. Place lid on chocolate chips to trap the heat and let sit undisturbed (no mixing) for 5 minutes. Remove lid and swirl the chocolate chips with a whisk starting in the center and working outward until smooth. It will turn into the velvety ganache.
  3. Once it’s velvety, let it sit uncovered at room temperature for about 15 minutes before pouring it over your cake. It is perfect for glazing the entire surface of a cake.
  4. Decorate the cake with a variety of items like nuts, chocolates, caramel crackers, etc…, just after you spread your ganache.
