Chocolate Cake: (makes 3 x 20cm cakes)
Frosting (filling and crumb coat):
Pre-heat your oven at 180ºC and pre-line your molds. Mix all the ingredients except for the boiling water together, when well mixed and the boiling water slowly and in stages. When finished devide the batter (which by the way is very liquid but don´t fret it will all work out at the end) into the 3 x 20cm molds. Bake for 40-45minutes or until a tootpick comes out clean. Let it cool completely before filling or frosting. Cut the very tops off every cake to ensure the cake is even when assembling.
Cream butter and cream cheese together, then add the Nutella. When well combined add the sifted icing sugar on slow speed and lastly the vanilla essence. Whisk on high for a further 5 minutes. Cover and leave to set further in the fridge.
Warm the cream in the microwave just until it simmers, add your chopped chocolate, whisk until your mixture is creamy without any chocolate lumps. Cover with cling film and leave to cool at room temperature. When cooled to room temp transfer to the fridge to thicken further. Tip: Makes this the night before. Whisk on high in your stand mixture the next day to ensure your ganache is light and fluffy.
