  • 150 grams Plain Flour
  • 40 grams Cocoa Powder

  • 1.5 tsp Baking Powder

  • 3 Eggs
  • 30 ml Espresso
  • 150 grams Dark Chocolate
  • 150 grams Butter


  • 150 grams Dark chocolate

  • Preheat your oven to 160C/140C Fan. Grease & line an 8×8 square tin or what ever tin you like.
  • Melt your chocolate and butter and set aside to cool. Mix all your dry ingredients into a bowl together.
  • In a separate bowl mix your eggs, buttermilk and espresso.
  • Pour your wet mix and chocolate mix into your dry ingredients. Mix till smooth then add into your tin and bake for approx 50-60 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let your cake cool completely.
  • Lets make the ganache, warm up your cream then pour over your chocolate. Mix until smooth then place in the fridge until it reaches a spreadable consistency.
  • Place your cakes on a serving plate then load on your ganache, I just used a spatula to do this but use whatever you like.
  • Decorate however you like, I did mine easy and textured then added on some chocolate chips.
  • Slice up and enjoy! This cake will last for up to 5 days in a sealed container.
