  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add eggs, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Stir in boiling water until the batter is well combined. The batter will be thin – don’t worry; this is what makes the cake moist and delicious.
  4. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the chocolate ganache. In a heatproof bowl, combine the chocolate chips and heavy cream. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Let it cool slightly.
  7. Once the cakes have cooled, spread a layer of chocolate ganache between each layer. Then, frost the entire cake with the remaining ganache. Decorate as desired.
