Steps

1
Done

Grease and flour the sides of a 8″ ring tin, or a 6″ round tin. Line the bottom. {I play safe line the sides too}.

2
Done

Preheat the oven to 170C.

3
Done

Sift the flour with the cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Reserve.

4
Done

Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.

5
Done

With beater on low add the flour and buttermilk alternately in three lots. {Stir in chopped nuts at this point if you like. Walnuts, almonds and pistachios go well with chocolate. Hazelnuts too.}

6
Done

Bake for 50-60 minutes till golden brown on top, and the tester comes out clean.

7
Done

Meanwhile, make the glaze…

8
Done

Ganache

100gms dark chocolate
3 tbsps low fat cream {might need a little more}

Method:
Gently simmer the two over low heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate melts. Take off heat and stir briskly till nice and shiny. The glaze should be nice and thick, yet of flowing consistency. Add a little cream if the glaze is too thick, or a little chocolate if it is too thin. It will continue to thicken as it cools down.

Done

Finishing off…

Overturn the cake out gently on rack, and remove the lining. Turn it back on another rack. Let it cool for about 15-20 minutes. Pour the glaze evenly over the hot cake, coaxing it all around, letting some drip over the sides. Dust the edges with chocolate shavings if you like.
