Classic chocolate cake with chocolate ganache

My son has a sweet tooth so I seldom make something sweet at home.

I always like the basic moist chocolate cake which is very easy to make.It is a great chocolate cake which you will make over and over again.It has 3 basic parts

  1. Baking
  2. Making the ganach
  3. Assemble

I have made a ganache filling but you can always try different things like the vanilla butter cream,chocolate fudge or cream cheese as per your choice.


  • 225gm all purpose flour
  • 300 gm sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 75 gm coco powder
  • 20 gm coffee powder (coffee enhances the chocolate flavor)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 150 ml warm milk
  • 50 ml hot boiling water
  • 3 eggs
  • 180 gm melted butter

Hot water always breaks the gluten


  • Preheat the oven to 365F
  • Grease a 9 inch baking dish
  • Dust it with flour
  • Now mix all the dry ingredients
  • Beat the eggs breaking one by one
  • Add the melted butter slowly
  • Make a creamy texture
  • Add in all the dry ingredients
  • Add the warm milk
  • Add the vanilla essence
  • Now whisk the mixture
  • This time add the boiling water
  • Now pour it into the baking dish
  • Bake it for 35-40 minutes or until it’s done
  • Put a skewer in the middle see if it comes clean

Cool down the cake for at least 2 hours

Now for the ganache


  • 100 gm chocolate chips ( I took the dark version)
  • 80 gm double cream


  • Heat the double cream don’t bring it to boil
  • Pour it over the chocolate chips allow it to be like that for 5 minutes
  • Now mix them together
  • You will get a creamy chocolaty mixture

Cool it for 10-15 minutes

Assemble the cake:

  • Layer the cake into 2 halves
  • Spread the ganache into 2 halves
  • Now put one layer above another
  • Spread the mixture over the top and the sides

You can just go with the swish and swirl process or take a piping bag and go ahead with the decoration in both the case the cake will taste the same😉😉😉.
