Truffle Cake

a recipe by Olivia Bogacki
makes one 8” 2-layer cake – 12 servings

For the Chocolate Frosting (make in advance):

  • 18 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate (finely chopped)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  1. Place chopped chocolate into a large heatproof bowl.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine heavy cream and butter. Cook on med-high, stirring often, until just simmering.
  3. Pour hot cream over chopped chocolate and cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let sit 5 minutes.
  4. Stir gently until completely smooth.
  5. Place plastic wrap directly on top of chocolate. Allow to thicken and set overnight.*
  6. NOTE: *You can speed up the process by placing the frosting in the fridge, but be sure to stir often.

For the Chocolate Cake:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder (sifted)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup buttermilk (room temperature)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup hot water

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease two 8″ cake rounds, dust with cocoa powder and line bottoms with parchment.
  2. Place flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla. Very slowly pour in hot water while whisking constantly.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix on medium for 2 to 3 minutes. Batter will be very thin.
  5. Pour batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
  6. Place cakes on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, cut each layer in half horizontally, if desired.
