The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake

Ingredients
For the chocolate cake:
  1. 4 large eggs
  2. 300 grams sugar
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 400 ml. sour cream
  6. 125 ml. vegetable oil
  7. 420 grams all-purpose flour
  8. 140 grams cocoa powder
  9. 10 grams baking soda
  10. 375 ml. lukewarm water

For the chocolate ganache:
  1. 400 grams of dark chocolate
  2. 375 ml. whipping cream

Instructions
Chocolate Cake:
  • Preheat the oven to 170c degrees and grease the pan well.
  • In a mixer bowl with a whipping attachment, whip eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla into an airy, light and somewhat foamy mixture.
  • Add sour cream and oil and mix slowly at medium speed until they are absorbed in the mixture.
  • Sift in flour, cocoa powder and baking soda and slowly mix until almost uniform.
  • Add water and mix slowly at medium speed until you get a completely uniform batter.
  • Pour the batter into the pan.
  • Bake the cake for 50-60 minutes or until it is very swollen, steady to the touch and a skewer inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs.
  • Cool completely at room temperature.
  • Using a long, serrated bread knife, straighten the top of the cake if necessary and slice the cake into two equal layers.
Chocolate ganache:
  • Chop the chocolate and put in a bowl.
  • Add cream and melt together in the microwave or over double-boiler until everything melts and you get a uniform and shiny chocolate ganache.
  • Cool the ganache for 4-5 hours at room temperature until it reaches the texture of a thick paste. You can speed it up by cooling in the refrigerator and mixing every few minutes.
