Type: Dessert
Diet: Vegetarian
Serving: Yields about 1/2 kg cake

Ingredients

125 gms flour
1/2 tin milkmaid
1 tsp chocolate essence
2 Tbps Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Drinking chocolate powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda (meetha soda)
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 Tbsp semi soft butter or 60 gms butter
1/4th cup milk

Coffee mixture

1/4th cup water
1 tsp coffee powder
1 tsp sugar

Chocolate ganache

2 cups/250 gms chopped dark chocolate (I use Morde Dark compound)
1 cup cream (I used Amul fresh cream)

Method

Pre-heat oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.

Grease spring-form cake mould with butter and dust with little cocoa powder. Tap away excess cocoa powder.

All the cake ingredients  ( except for dark chocolate) should be at room temperature.

Strain all dry ingredients i.e. flour, drinking chocolate, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and powdered sugar together thrice. Divide it in three parts and keep aside.

Empty 1/2 tin milkmaid in a bowl and whisk using electric beater for 5 minutes. Now add butter and whisk together till mixture becomes lighter in colour.

Now fold dry ingredients and milk in the milkmaid mixture one part at a time. Add chocolate essence in the end.

Pour batter in the cake mould and bake at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes or till baked through. Check by inserting a skewer or a knife.

    Take out of oven and let it rest for 10 minutes. Then release from the mould by unlocking the ring.

    Dust a plate/board with icing sugar and turn the cake upside down on that plate/board.

    Now gently remove the bottom plate of the springform cake mould.
      After 15 minutes, using a cake knife, carefully cut cake horizontally into two parts for frosting and keep aside.

      For making the ganache, heat cream in a non-stick deep pan over medium heat. Just when you see bubbles forming, turn off the gas.

      Immediately add chopped dark chocolate in cream and using a spatula stir in circular motion till chocolate is totally melted with cream. Mixture should be silky smooth without any lumps.


      Once the mixture comes at room temperature, check if it has a liquid or spreadable consistency. If its still quite liquid, refrigerate for half an hour.


      Assembling the cake



      To make the cake more moist, microwave 1/4th cup water with 1 tsp coffee powder and sugar for 30 seconds. Cool it down and moisten both halves of the cake with this liquid by spreading it evenly with the help of a spoon.



      Spread half of the ganache on 1st layer of cake evenly with the help of a palette knife. 


      Now place 2nd layer of cake over it and cover with rest of the ganache. Cover the sides of cake too with ganache for better finish and look.


      Stick chocolate chips on the side and decorate top of the cake with some ferrero rocher.


      For piping patterns on cake, put ganache again  in refrigerator for an 1/2 hour. Once set, fill a piping bag and pipe desired designs using different nozzles.
