Forget the name,it is heavenly!Its a moist rich airy cake with the luscious frosting!The rustic look of that frosting forced me to make this cake!
Its a dark coloured chocolate cake with a thick and stiff chocolate ganache.Chocolate lovers will go mad for it.The batter is thin which makes the cake moist and the ganache we need to make and keep it for sometime to get that thick chocolate spread.
It is actually a layered cake but I make it only half the volume and frosted on top still it was yum ,chocolatey and moist.Prepare the ganache before you making batter and then keep it aside,so that it will set well before we using.
