This cake is blissful indulgence. A delicious, rich and decadent cake! The cake itself is very moist and has a deep chocolatey flavor. The frosting has a much desired tanginess provided by the cream cheese. The dark chocolate ganache on top brings sweet, tangy and decadent together in this beautiful creation!
Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder, if using it instead of coffee. Set aside.
Whisk eggs together in a large bowl for about 30 seconds.
If you see big clumps of cocoa powder, you can use the whisk to try to smooth the batter out.
Just make sure you don’t skip step number 5, which is sifting the ingredients in the beginning of the recipe.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 20-30 min. Baking time will vary according to what size pan you are using. After the 20 minute mark, keep checking regularly, because you don’t want to burn your cakes or overbake them. Remove them from the oven once a toothpick comes our clean once inserted in the cake.
Once you remove it from the oven, wait 10 minutes, flip cakes onto a cookie cooling rack and let cakes cool.
