  • For the Chocolate Cake:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease and flour a 9-inch (23cm) round cake pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the eggs, whole milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until the batter is smooth and well combined.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For the Chocolate Ganache:
  • Place the dark chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate) in a heatproof bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream and unsalted butter over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove it from the heat immediately.
  • Pour the hot cream mixture over the dark chocolate and let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
  • Gently stir the chocolate and cream together until smooth and glossy.
  • To Assemble:
  • Once the cake is completely cooled, pour the chocolate ganache over the top of the cake, allowing it to drip down the sides.
