Why Does This Recipe Work?
By using heavy or whipping cream, you may make this recipe with very easy ingredients.
Using semisweet or dark chocolate chips makes this recipe easy and pantry-friendly.
A teaspoon of salt prevents this chocolaty frosting from becoming too sweet.
Whipping the ganache frosting creates a light, fluffy texture that is easy to spread or pipe.
The addition of coffee accentuates the chocolate taste.
The use of a butter-oil mixture adds taste and moisture to the cake.

Chocolate Ganache Frosting is a delicious way to top your favorite cake or cupcakes!
Rustic Chocolate Cake Recipe|What Is the Best Chocolate?
I prefer 54.5 percent Cacao Dark Chocolate since it tastes nice without being too sweet and melts effortlessly. If the chocolate you want to use does not have a percentage mentioned on the packaging, I suggest waiting until you can find some that does.
To make the filling, you may use semi-sweet, bitter-sweet, dark, or milk chocolate chips. Keep in mind that milk chocolate will make a considerably sweeter filling.
Rustic Chocolate Cake Recipe|How to Tell If a Cake is Ready
Inserting a cake tester or skewer into the cake is one technique to see whether it is done baking. If it is clean, the cake is done.
If you don’t have a cake tester or skewer, gently press your finger on the cake. The cake is done if it bounces back. It takes a few more minutes if it leaves an impression in the cake.
How to Make rustic Chocolate Cake Recipe
- Chocolate Cake
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder, Dutch-processed
- 1 cup freshly made coffee
- 3 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla (I use Nielsen-Massey Mexican Pure Vanilla Extract)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 3/4 cup regular flour
- 1 and 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 big eggs (at room temperature)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Canola oil, 1/2 cup
Chocolate Slivers (Optional)
- 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate
Ganache de chocolate
- 8 ounces of semisweet chocolate.
- 1 cup heavy cream
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. You may use three 6-inch or two 8-inch circular cake pans. Line and oil a baking tray with baking parchment. Set aside. Use a 6-inch cake pan to make a towering cake.
2. If buttermilk is unavailable, make your own. Combine a scant cup of milk with a spoonful of vinegar (white or cider) or lemon juice. Leave it for at least 5 minutes, or until it begins to curdle.
3. Combine the hot brewed coffee and 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate in a mixing bowl. You should start dissolving the chocolate in the coffee. Set aside after thoroughly mixing.
4. Prepare your dry ingredients. Sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, flour, and salt. Combine all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer equipped with a paddle attachment.
5. Prepare your wet ingredients. In another bowl, combine together the buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
6. With the mixer on low speed, carefully add the wet ingredients. Following that, add the coffee and chocolate combination. Just combine everything. Overmixing results in tunnels and a peaked center, while undermixing results in an uneven mixture and a flat cake.
7. Divide the mixture into two or three pans and bake immediately away. Set them on the middle rack of the oven. Maintain good heat circulation by carefully spacing the pans.
8. Bake for 15 minutes, or until a cake tester (wooden toothpick) inserted into the center comes out virtually clean. While the cake cool completely, work on the chocolate shards and icing.
