The most tender chocolate cake imaginable with fresh strawberries and a light vanilla mascarpone buttercream.

For the Cake;
  • 1/2cupsour cream
  • 1cupbuttermilk
  • 3eggslarge
  • 1 1/2cupsstrong hot coffeeI use a moka pot so it's basically espresso
  • 3/4cupvegetable oil
  • 1tbspvanilla extract
  • 3cupsall-purpose flour
  • 2 2/3cupsgranulated sugar
  • 1/2cupcocoa powder
  • 1 1/2tspbaking powder
  • 1tbspbaking soda
  • 1tspkosher salt

For the Filling;
  • 3/4cupunsalted butterroom temperature
  • 1lbconfectioners' sugar
  • 8ozmascarponeroom temperature
  • 1tbspheavy creamplus more if needed

For the Ganache;
  • 1cupheavy cream
  • 1cupsemi-sweet chocolate
  • Strawberries!
  • 4cupsstrawberries hulled and sliced
  • 16strawberries with leaves removedapproximately

For the Cake;
  1. Butter and flour 3 nine inch cake pans. I highly recommend using cake strips for a more even bake.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients (including the sugar) into the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together.
  4. Add the wet ingredients the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine then mix on level 2 for two minutes.  
  5. Distribute batter evenly to the three pans and bake for about 35 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. I recommend rotating the pans half way through the bake.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then invert onto wire racks to cool fully.

For the Filling;
  1. Cream the butter until it lightens and changes texture, at least 5 minutes. Beat in the confectioners' sugar and pour in a tablespoon of cream. Add the mascarpone cheese and beat JUST until combined. If you over-beat the texture will loose it's silkiness. 

For the Ganache;
  1. Scald the cream and pour over the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Cover and let sit for two minutes, then whisk until smooth.
