Step 1: the Ganache
• 3/4 lb bittersweet chocolate (minimum of 54% cocoa mass; approximately 3 cups)
• 3/4 cup heavy cream (minimum of 33% milk fat)
• 5 oz unsalted butter (soft)
Cut the butter into small pieces and let it soften at room temperature. Next, chop the chocolate into small pieces. Heat the cream on a medium-high heat. Once it boils gently, pour it over the chocolate and let it sit for a few minutes. Whisk until it shows a smooth consistency. Add the soft butter, whisk it, cover it and set aside.
Step 2: the Cake
• 2 1/4 cups of sugar
