First to bake the cake, we need:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 3/4 cup, unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 11/2 tsps of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of baking powder

Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pans and bake in the middle rack of the oven (180ºC) for 40 mins or until a skewer comes out clean. Start checking from 35 mins onwards.

Cool for 30 mins before inverting onto a wire rack.

Meantime lets prepare the ganache:

  • 450g dark chocolate
  • 2 cups of heavy cream

The chocolate must first be chopped into small pieces so that it will melt evenly.

Put chocolate into a large heatproof bowl. Bring 2 cups of cream just to a boil over medium-high heat or put for 3 mins in microwave; pour over chocolate. Let stand 10 minutes.

Stir the mixture very gently, incorporating the cream steadily, without overworking. The mixture should begin to appear glossy.


Make sure the cake is completely cool.
