How to make it

  • melt the chocolate.
  • cream the butter and sugar together then add the eggs one by one, beating well after each addition.
  • add the vanilla and chocolate and mix well.
  • sift together all the dry ingredients and add them in 1/3rds, alternating with the buttermilk.
  • You can also add some good quality chocolate chips if you like.
  • grease and flour a 10″ springform pan, you can line it with parchment if wanted but this is not essential.
  • Bake the cake at 350F for around 45 minutes until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Ice this with a good ganache: boil 250 ml of cream and pour over 150 gms of quality dark chocolate that has been chopped.
  • After 5 minutes, mix well and let cool.
  • When cold, beat well with an electric mixer until the ganache is the consistency of whipped cream.
  • Ice the cake only when completely cold.
  • Sprinkles or draguees optional.
