INSTRUCTIONS
For the Cake

  1. Butter and flour 3 nine inch cake pans. I highly recommend using cake strips for a more even bake.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients (including the sugar) into the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together.
  4. Add the wet ingredients the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine then mix on level 2 for two minutes.  
  5. Distribute batter evenly to the three pans and bake for about 35 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. I recommend rotating the pans half way through the bake.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then invert onto wire racks to cool fully.

For the Filling

  1. Cream the butter until it lightens and changes texture, at least 5 minutes. Beat in the confectioners' sugar and pour in a tablespoon of cream. Add the mascarpone cheese and beat JUST until combined. If you over-beat the texture will loose it's silkiness. 

For the Ganache

  1. Scald the cream and pour over the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Cover and let sit for two minutes, then whisk until smooth.
