The World’s Best Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake
The pictures doesn’t do it justice, but this was the last few slices of a very quickly demolished chocolate cake… 
I am also aware that ‘World’s Best Chocolate Cake’ is a very big statement, but I take chocolate very seriously, take my hot chocolate post as an example… 
But after years of baking and testing out different recipes, I’ve found the chocolate cake recipe and some pretty awesome fillings too! 
The recipe in question is the Hummingbird Bakery Brooklyn Blackout Cake recipe. Follow the instructions and you will get the most moist, chocolatey cake ever, guaranteed! 
But with batter in the oven, I like to experiment with my own filling recipes! 
For the inside. I went for a salted caramel and chocolate ganache filling, but don’t worry its easier than it sounds! 
Just melt 2 Mars bars in the microwave (30 seconds at a time, then stir). 
Then quickly added some double cream (I guesstimated here, but I’d suggest 2 part Mars bar to 1 part cream). 
Whap out your whisk and stir until smooth. 
Add salt to taste, but refrain from eating the lot!
Leave in the fridge to set. 
For the outside. I went for a classic dark chocolate ganache! 
Break up about 100g of chocolate and melt in the microwave (again for only 30 seconds at a time, then stir). 
Add your double cream (again I guesstimated, but go for 2 parts chocolate to 1 part cream).
Quickly whisk until smooth. 
Leave in the fridge to set. 
Once everything is cooled, start layering up! And enjoy.
