Chocolate Truffle Cake Recipe
- 2-1/2 cups 2% milk
- 1 cup butter, cubed
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2-2/3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
- In a large saucepan, cook the milk, butter and chocolate over low heat until melted. Remove from the heat; let stand for 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, beat eggs and vanilla; stir in chocolate mixture until smooth. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture and mix well (batter will be thin).
- Transfer to three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
- For filling, in a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate. Stir in confectioners' sugar and cream until smooth.
- 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, stirring occasionally, until ganache reaches a spreading consistency.
- Place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the filling. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread ganache over top and sides of cake. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 16 servings.

Amazing Cake - It was my first time at making a cake.. and I end up being a proud cake making girl.. yaaaayyy.. thanks.. and yes, I am here to share the applauds I got from my family.. :)
Thanks a ton!!!
I have tried this cake yesterdays. It looked just like in the picture above. My husband was impresses. Although it took me 2h to make it. I have a really small oven and had to cook each layer individually. It was worth it. I thought it to be really simple to make, it is tasty and not so sweet. I will make it again for my son's 1year birthday but this time ... with white chocolate
It was absolutely amazing! Everyone loved it... some said it was the best they had ever tasted!
Did I enjoy the cake, yes. Was it easy or worth my while, not so much. The cake part was moist and had great flavor, enjoyed the filling and the ganache had something to be desired. No matter what I used, I still had lumpy filling and ganache.
I thought 16 servings wasn't too bad a size. It was me and another I was making it for, and we thought it would be gone by the end of the week - we never even got through half, it was that huge of a cake. If you have guests, this would be a great receipe to have. If you're like me and don't have many people around, you either need to freeze a good portion of it or find something else to make. I'm sorry I am the party pooper in this review.
Made this tonight for my guests. I will definetly be keeping this in my recipe box! It's a little work, but totally worth it! Guests said it tasted like something you'd eat a restaurant! I'm not a huge fan of cake, and I thought it was delicious!!
I didn't use the frosting/filling though. I used the "Glossy Chocolate Frosting Recipe" (Taste of Home, Light & Tasty) as the filling and icing instead. It was fabulous on this cake!
