Chocolate Lovers??? Cake

Cake

  • 4 oz. Baking chocolate
  • 3/4 cup Hot water
  • 2 sticks Butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2-1/4 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 3/4 cup Milk

Frosting

  • 5 POUNDS chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups of boiling cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ? stick butter

Instructions

Cake

Add the chocolate to the hot water and set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, oil, salt, chocolate/water mixture and vanilla. Add the remaining ingredients, alternating wet with dry. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

After the cakes are cool, put them in the freezer until ready to decorate. The best is yet to come.

Frosting

Put 5 pounds (that’s right, 5 pounds) of chocolate chips in your mixer. Add 1-1/2 cups of boiling cream, and mix slowly until the chocolate is completely melted. Add 2 teaspoons vanilla, 4 tablespoons of light corn syrup, and 1/2 stick of butter.

Take half of the mixture and spread onto a sheet pan. Let it cool in the refrigerator. When completely cooled, put it back into the mixer and whip at high speed until it reaches a spreadable consistency. Put one layer of the chocolate cake on a cake plate and spread the whipped ganache on the layer. Place the second layer over this one and spread ganache over the entire cake, making it as smooth as possible. Return the cake to the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Melt all the remaining ganache in saucepan. When the cake is sufficiently cool, pour the melted ganache over the entire cake, quickly and evenly. Gently shake the cake until the excess chocolate runs off. Return the cake to the refrigerator until serving time. Decorate with fresh raspberries or whatever you desire.
