The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake

IngredientsFor the chocolate cake:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 300 grams sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 400 ml. sour cream
  • 125 ml. vegetable oil
  • 420 grams all-purpose flour
  • 140 grams cocoa powder
  • 10 grams baking soda
  • 375 ml. lukewarm water
  • For the chocolate ganache:
  • 400 grams of dark chocolate
  • 375 ml. whipping cream

InstructionsChocolate Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170c degrees and grease the pan well.
  2. In a mixer bowl with a whipping attachment whip eggs sugar salt and vanilla into an airy light and somewhat foamy mixture.
  3. Add sour cream and oil and mix slowly at medium speed until they are absorbed in the mixture.
  4. Sift in flour cocoa powder and baking soda and slowly mix until almost uniform.
  5. Add water and mix slowly at medium speed until you get a completely uniform batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan.
  7. Bake the cake for 50-60 minutes or until it is very swollen steady to the touch and a skewer inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs.
  8. Cool completely at room temperature.
  9. Using a long serrated bread knife straighten the top of the cake if necessary and slice the cake into two equal layers.

Chocolate ganache:

  1. Chop the chocolate and put in a bowl.
  2. Add cream and melt together in the microwave or over double-boiler until everything melts and you get a uniform and shiny chocolate ganache.
  3. Cool the ganache for 4-5 hours at room temperature until it reaches the texture of a thick paste. You can speed it up by cooling in the refrigerator and mixing every few minutes.

Assemble the cake:

  1. Place the first layer of cake on top of a serving plate and pour about 1/3 of the ganache on top of it. Surfaces it in a uniform layer using a palate knife.
  2. Place the top layer of the cake over the ganache and cover the cake with almost the remaining ganache – sides and top – in a uniform layer.
  3. Transfer the remaining of the ganache into a piping bag fitted with 1 cm serrated piping tip and decorate the top of the cake with chocolate ganache.
  4. Serve the cake at room temperature so it is at its best texture.
