– For a richer chocolate taste, replace the coffee with hot water. It will not add a coffee flavor, but rather concentrate the chocolate flavor of the cake. – Use high-quality dark chocolate to make the ganache. You will feel the difference! If you don’t like dark chocolate, you can use milk chocolate instead. – The sour cream helps make this cake moist, but to make it even softer, you can use vegetable oil instead of butter for the batter. – This delicious cake is easy to make in advance. For best results, prepare it the day before you want to serve it. – Do not mix the dough too much. Otherwise the cake will become very thick.
How to decorate a chocolate cake
The easiest way to decorate a chocolate cake is with chocolate icing or ganache. You can easily make a rich chocolate ganache at home by heating heavy cream and whisking chocolate into it, then pouring it over the cake.
If you prefer frosting, take a packet of your favorite frosting (chocolate frosting is always great, but other flavors like vanilla or buttercream are nice too) and apply it to the cake with a knife. You can also make homemade chocolate frosting by whisking the butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.

How to make a chocolate cake with fresh cream
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the baking dish with baking spray.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
Beat in the eggs one by one.
Do the same with the vanilla and beat until the mixture is creamy. Boil water, drain ½ cup and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and baking soda.
Pour the flour mixture into the egg mixture, add ½ cup warm water and fold until combined.
Add the fresh cream.
Transfer the cake batter to the pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes, then remove it from the baking sheet and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
While the cake cools, heat the cream in a small saucepan. When hot, add the chocolate and stir until melted, about 2-3 minutes. Stir until everything is homogeneous.
Let the chocolate cool a little and then pour it over the cake.
Use the ingredients at room temperature. This will make the cake batter more even.
