PERFECT CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE
8 oz unsweetened chocolate
4 C sugar (3 3/4 C for high altitude)
3 C flour (3 1/4 C for high altitude)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda (1 1/4 tsp for high altitude)
1 tsp salt
2 C HOT water with 10 tsp coco powder dissolved in it (2 1/4 C water for high altitude)
1 C sour cream OR greek yogurt
1 C vegetable oil
4 Lrg eggs lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 345
Prepare three 8 or 9 inch round cake pans (if doing 8 inch pans I suggest 3 inches tall pans, or four of the 2 inch tall 8 inch pans) I use parchment paper circles on the bottom and a non stick spray on the sides
Melt the baking chocolate in double broiler (or in a bowl over a simmering pot of water) then let it cool.
In a large bowl, or bowl of a mixer add the sugar, flour, soda and salt and whisk together.
In a separate bowl (or a large glass measuring cup) mix the hot water and cocoa
Then add the sour cream and oil and whisk.
Add the wet mixture in a stream to the dry ingredients and mix until blended.
Add the lightly beaten eggs and beat.
Add the cooled melted chocolate and mix until uniform in color.
Bake at 345 40-45 mins (raise the heat by 25 degrees and lower the time by 5 mins for high altitude)
CHOCOLATE GANACHE BUTTERCREAM
20 oz chocolate chopped
1 1/2 C cream
2 tbsp corn syrup (stabilizing)
2 C butter – slightly softened
1-2 C powdered sugar
Place the chocolate into a large bowl
in a saucepan heat the cream and corn syrup - until just about to simmer
Pour it over the chocolate and let it sit for 5 mins - then stir
Let the ganache cool to room temp
Beat butter and add 1 C powdered sugar
add more if needed to achieve a thick buttercream
pour the ganache into the buttercream and beat.
Chill for 5-19 mins n the fridge, beat again, chill, beat, chill, beat - until your happy with the thickness
