     Hot Chocolate Cake

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

1 cups all-purpose flour
cup unsweetened cocoa powder (sifted)
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
cup granulated sugar
cup light brown sugar (packed)
teaspoon salt
2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
cup vegetable oil
cup buttermilk (room temperature)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup hot chocolate (hot, made with milk)
Marshmallow Fluff
Chocolate Frosting

1. Preheat oven to 350F, grease two 8 inch cake rounds. Dust with cocoa powder and line bottoms with parchment.
2. Place all dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, sugars and salt) into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix until well combined. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla. Very slowly pour in hot hot chocolate while whisking constantly.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix on medium for 2-3 minutes. Batter will be very thin. Pour batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean. Place cakes on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
Place one layer of cake onto a cake stand or serving plate. Pipe a dam around the edge with the chocolate frosting and fill with approximately 1 cup of marshmallow fluff. Spread evenly. Place remaining layer on top and crumb coat the cake. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Frost the cake with the chocolate frosting, smoothing the sides and top. Place back in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to set. Pipe a scallop pattern (using a large round piping tip and a small offset spatula, following this technique) on top and bottom edges using the remaining marshmallow fluff. Top with chocolate shavings if desired.
