Moist Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache


Ingredients:

Cake
300g of all purpose flour
100g of cocoa powder
400g of castor sugar (I have used 300g only)
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of vanilla extract
250ml of hot water
250ml of vegetable oil
250ml of low fat milk
3 large eggs


Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda and keep aside for later use.

In a mixing bowl beat eggs with sugar and vanilla extract then add water, vegetable oil and milk. Now add in the sifted dry ingredients gradually without over mixing the batter.

Pour this batter on a baking pan which have been applied with butter and flour (I have used bundt pan), dust off excess flour and bake this cake for 30-45 minutes at 150 to 170 degrees depending on your oven requirement. The cake is done when you insert a skewer and it comes out clean, let the cake cool overnight or at least few hours before pouring the ganache.



Chocolate Ganache Frosting
50ml of cream
200g of dark chocolate
1 tbsp of butter

Melt all dark chocolate and cream over double boiling method, once chocolate is perfectly melted add in butter for a glossy look. Let the ganache cool before pouring over the cake and decorate upon your creativity.


See how glossy is the ganache 


Do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
