Ingredients

  • 2

    ounces 53% cacao dark baking chocolate, coarsely chopped

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 3/4

    cup boiling water

  • 3/4

    cup sugar

  • 1/4

    cup buttermilk

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2

    teaspoon orange extract

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • GANACHE:

  • 1/4

    cup half-and-half cream

  • 3

    ounces 53% cacao dark baking chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions

Place chocolate and butter in a large bowl; add boiling water and stir until smooth. Stir in the sugar, buttermilk, egg and extracts. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; beat into chocolate mixture just until blended. Transfer to a 9-in. round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Place rack on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. For ganache, place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Slowly pour ganache over cake, allowing some ganache to drape over the sides. Refrigerate until serving. Cut into wedges.
