Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake
Ingredients
300 grams cooking chocolate (50%)
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 medium eggs, room temperature
200 grams granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
2 tablespoons plain flour

For the chocolate truffle filling
400 ml double cream, divided
For the Ganache glaze and decoration
100 grams dark chocolate (70%)
100 ml double cream

Directions

Step 1
Start by making the truffle filling – roughly chop the chocolate and place it in a large bowl.

Step 2
Heat up 300 ml of double cream, until it starts giving off wisps of steam, but it is not boiling or simmering, then quickly pour it over the chocolate.

Step 3
Gently stir until all of the chocolate is melted, then let it sit at room temperature for an hour or so, until thickened up.

Step 4
For the cake layers, place the eggs into a large bowl, and beat with an electric mixer on the highest setting, for about 2 minutes, until they become paler in colour, and the volume increases.

Step 5
Add in the sugar and vanilla, and continue whisking on high for another 2-3 minutes, until the batter almost doubles in size, and becomes thick. Sift in the flour and the baking powder, then fold everything through gently, using a spatula, being careful not to deflate the eggs. Pour the batter into three round cake tins (18 cm), lined with baking parchment.

Step 6
Bake in a preheated oven, at 180°C (350°F), for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven.

Step 7
Check with a toothpick to make sure done, remove from the oven, let cool in the tins.

Step 8
When the cakes have cooled, and the chocolate ganache has thickened up, prepare the platter for the cake assembly and decorating.

Step 9
Beat the chocolate ganache with an electric mixer on a high setting until it starts resembling buttercream, than take the reserved 100 ml of double cream, and add it into the filling in a few additions, without stopping the whisking.

Step 10
Once all is incorporated, the truffle filling should be velvety and smooth.

Step 11
Remove the cooled cake layers, which will have deflated slightly by then, and that is perfectly fine, from their tins, remove the baking parchment, and place the first one on the cake platter.

Step 12
Place one third of the truffle filling, and gently spread it all over the cake. Place another cake layer, and repeat the process until the cake is fully filled.

Step 13
Use the remaining third of the truffle filling all over the top and sides of the cake, as well as for some light decorations, and while it is still freshly spread, add some roughly ground walnuts on top and on the sides of the cake, then place it in the refrigerator for an hour or so.

Step 14
For the chocolate ganache, same as before, place the roughly chopped chocolate into a medium bowl, and heat up the double cream until almost boiling. Quickly pour over the chocolate, and stir until melted.

Step 15
Let the ganache cool down slightly, to thicken up, then take the cake out of the refrigerator, and pour the chocolate all over the chilled cake.

Step 16
Return the finished cake to the refrigerator for another 4 hours, and it is ready to be served. Yields 12-16 servings.

Me earlier today: I've missed baking so much. It's been over 2 years since I baked because of having had back surgery. But I'm getting in the lab today! Going to make carrot cupcakes for my neighbors. Then I'm going to make a vegan/low allergen version for the wife.

Me just now: Lord...I forgot what it was like to make carrot cake. Lol. Between this and my sweet potato cheesecake... LABORS OF LOVE!

Here's the final product of the ones for the neighbors. I'm going to make Wanda's tomorrow.

And no I haven't been baking the whole time. Had to make a store run and eat dinner.

Decided not to put nuts on all of them. Wanda reminded me that people might have allergies.
