Black Forest Chocolate Cake


1 cup buttermilk
1 cup coffee brewed and cooled
2 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Chocolate Ganache:
9 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup heavy cream

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Butter and flour a bundt pan. Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt {set aside}.

Whisk together the eggs and applesauce; then add the cold coffee, vanilla and buttermilk.

Gradually beat in the flour/cocoa mixture until combined.

Pour the chocolate cake batter into the prepared bundt pan.

Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let cool completely before making the chocolate ganache.

For the Ganache: Chop the chocolate and place into a heat safe bowl.

Heat cream to a small boil and immediately pour it over the chocolate {keep in mind you want it heated not scalded}.

Whisk until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

Have the chocolate cool a little and then pour over cooled cake.

If you want a fluffier frosting or filling… cool the ganach completely then whip with wire whisk.
