A Decadent chocolate layer cake covered with rich, delicious chocolate frosting.

Fudgy Chocolate Cake

serves 8

6 oz. white chocolate, for garnish

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

1 cup plus 3 tbsp. granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup plus 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

4 large eggs

1/2 pint heavy cream

10 1/2 oz. semisweet chocolate

1. Finely grate white chocolate onto a plate using a vegetable peeler.
Chill until needed. Preheat oven to 350 F. degree's.

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 comes out clean, 20-25
minutes. Leave cakes in pans to cool for 1 minute, then turn onto wire rack.
Peel off lining paper; let cool.

4. Meanwhile, heat heavy cream just to boil. Break chocolate into pieces;
add 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 whole cake. Sprinkle reserve grated white chocolate to garnish.

This is mmmmm so good and not hard to make *Wink*
Got a hard day ? This is a perfect example of the name
of my new cookbook, " A little Southern Comfort "....
Chocolate has always been known as a comfort food *Bigsmile*
If you try this, I know you'll love it, you can't go wrong with
chocolate ! *Heart*
