Ingredients

  • 6

    oz. white chocolate, for garnish

  • 1

    cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

  • 1

    cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • cups all-purpose flour

  • ½

    cup plus 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 4

    large eggs

  • ½

    pint heavy cream

  • 10½

    oz. semisweet chocolate

Directions

1. Finely grate white chocolate onto a plate using a vegetable peeler. Chill until needed. Preheat over to 350 degrees. 2. Grease the base of two 8-inch round cake pans; line with parchment paper. Combine butter, sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and eggs in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer set on medium beat until smooth. Continue beating until increased in volume, about 2 minutes longer. Divide batter between pans. 3. Bake cakes until a toothpick inserted in centers come out clean, 20-25 minutes. Leave cakes in pans to cool for 1 minute then turn onto a wire rack. Peel off lining paper; let cool. 4. Meanwhile, heat heavy cream just to a boil. Break chocolate into pieces; add to cream and stir until melted. Let cool; chill for 30 minutes, then whisk until thickened to a spreadable consistency. 5. Use a third of chocolate frosting to sandwich cakes. Spread the remainder over the whole cake. Sprinkle reserved grated white chocolate to garnish.
