Cake Preparation
1. Pre-heat your oven to 350F (conventional) and prepare a 9" cake pan with parchment paper and butter / oil.
2. If making your own buttermilk, mix ½ cup milk with ½ tablespoon vinegar, stir, and set aside.
3. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Sift the ingredients to make sure there are no lumps.
4. Break in the egg, and add the vegetable oil and buttermilk. Use a whisk to gently mix until the ingredients come together.
5. In a smaller bowl, mix boiling water with cocoa powder and instant coffee, and whisk until you get a shiny mix. This step blooms the cocoa powder and brings out its lovely chocolatey notes.
6. Add the bloomed cocoa powder mix to the cake batter, and gently fold until combined.
7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
8. Bake at 350F for about ~20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached.
9. Wait 10 minutes and then turn out the cake onto a wire rack.
Ganache Preparation
1. Bring the cream to a boil, and pour over the chopped chocolate. Cover and rest for 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt, then mix until you get a shiny ganache. Rest for another 5 minutes so the ganache thickens slightly.
2. Pour the ganache over your cake, and you're ready to dive in!
