1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup buttermilk (homemade: 1/4 cup milk added with a few drops of distilled vinegar (cuka biasa), leave to rest for about 20 minutes

1/2 cup warm water

Methods:

Set your oven at 170C (i set mine at 160C)

Prepare your cake tins.

Sieve flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate soda, salt, and set aside.

Beat butter with sugars until light and fluffy, add eggs.

When all well incorporated add the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder etc) and alternate with liquid ingredients (buttermilk + warm water) in three portions, last incorporate the vanilla extract.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until just cooked

Cream Cheese Frosting

250 g Philly cheese (i made only half-125g)

125 g butter (i use about 60g)1 cup icing sugar (i used 1/2 cup)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

juice of a squeezed slice of lemon

Beat the cheese and butter, just until creamy, add the icing sugar, vanilla and lemon juice.

Chocolate Ganache

200 ml double cream with at least 30% fat content

250 g dark chocolate, chopped finely

a pinch of salt

In a double boiler, warm the cream until just at boiling point, add the chocolate and salt and stir, when all chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and continue stirring until all well mixed.

Wait for the cake to cool completely, spread the cream cheese frosting and pour the ganache on top.
