  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon salt 1½ cups milk ⅔ cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 eggs Filling: 3 ounces of semisweet chocolate pieces ¼ cup of whipping cream ½ cup of cream cheese, softened ¼ cup of butter, softened ½ teaspoon of vanilla 4 cups of powdered sugar Chocolate Ganache: 1 cup of whipping cream 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate pieces Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour two 9x1½-inch round cake pans; set aside. In a very large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add milk, oil, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer 2 minutes on medium. Add eggs and beat again 2 minutes. Divide batter evenly between the prepared pans, smoothing tops with a rubber spatula. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean. Cool cake layers in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on racks completely. Filling: In a pot, combine the chocolate pieces and ¼ cup whipping cream. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate almost melts. Remove from heat; stir until smooth. Cool for 15 minutes. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and butter. Add vanilla. Slowly add 4 cups powdered sugar, beating until well mixed. Beat in the cooled chocolate mixture. Chill about 30 minutes or until firm enough to spread. To assemble: Spread cooled filling in between 2 cake layers. May have some extra depending how much you use. Ganache: In a saucepan bring cream just to boiling over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Add chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes w/o stirring. Then stir until smooth. Cool for 15 minutes before using. Once cool, pour ganache over the top of the cake. Top with chocolate curls if desired. #version#
