Steps

1

for the cake

Chop chocolate so no pieces are larger than a chocolate chip. Place chocolate in a medium bowl or a 2 cup measuring cup and pour hot coffee over chocolate. Let sit for 5 minutes then stir, making sure all chocolate is melted and well combined with coffee. Set aside to cool.

Sift all dry ingredients together-sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In the a large mixing bowl (or the mixing bowl of your stand mixer) beat eggs on medium speed until frothy.

Slowly add oil, buttermilk, vanilla and chocolate-coffee mixture to eggs, beating well to blend.

Add in sugar/flour/cocoa mixture, one cup at a time, mixing just to combine after each addition.

Pour batter into 2 9 inch cake pans that have been well greased and lined with parchment paper on the bottom.

Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 45-50 minutes, using toothpick to test for doneness.

Let cakes cool completely in pan. Using a plastic knife, run knife around edges to loosen before turning out onto rack or plate.

Add in the milk mixture and beat again until mixture resembles a whipped cream.

Place chocolate chips in a large measuring cup.

Slowly pour ganache over top of cake, letting it drip down the sides. If needed use a spatula to help spread ganache on top over sides.
