Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. 185 grams all-purpose flour
  2. 37 grams cocoa powder
  3. 7 grams baking soda
  4. 250 ml skimmed milk (1 cup)
  5. 1 gram salt
  6. 225 grams light brown sugar
  7. 50 ml canola oil
  8. 1 tbsp white vinegar
  9. 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  10. For the ganache
  11. 170 grams dark chocolate
  12. 125 ml whipping cream ( 1/2 cup, 35% fat)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a 3-inch deep 6-inch cake pan by brushing the bottom and sides with melted butter and dusting it with cocoa, then lining the bottom with a round of parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa into a bowl .
  3. Add the vinegar to the milk in the cup measurer, stir, and let it stand for a few minutes.
  4. Whisk together the oil and brown sugar in a bowl.
  5. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the vinegar milk, and stir til it is combined.
  6. Pour the batter in the prepared pan and bake it until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean (about 45 minutes).
  7. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes before unmoulding it onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  8. While the cake is cooling, prepare the ganache by heating the cream on a medium flame. Pour it over the chocolates.
  9. Let the mixture stand for one minute, then stir slowly with a wooden spatula until the chocolate is melted and the ganache is smooth.
  10. Let the ganache cool slightly to thicken while you set the wire rack with cooled cake over a rimmed baking sheet. When the ganache has thickened slightly, pour it over the cooled cake. Transfer the cake to a cake stand to serve.
