- 1 cup butter, cubed
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar

- 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.

"Simple for even 1 st timers.!"
"This cake took me a few hours to make. I'll give it 4 stars for taste, but it was a disaster when trying to layer it. Second layer kept sliding off and once I put the third layer on, the whole cake tumbled and the top layer broke into 3 pieces. Chocolate was everywhere. Presentation was not good. I think I needed to trim the layers before layering it. First time making a 3 layered cake. I have a challenge now because the flavor received rave reviews by those who ate it. My Sis's fianc?, who is a huge dessert guy, said it tasted better than anything he'd had in a restaurant."
"I made this for my family and it was a huge hit! The cake was extremely moist and just the perfect amount of chocolate and sweet. The ganache smoothed out and made the cake look gorgeous too."
