French Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks,
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 6 squares semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • Ad
  • 1 cup cold strong brewed coffee
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Rum Glaze:

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tsp. rum extract

Filling:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 carton frozen whipped topping, thawed (8oz.)
  • chocolate curls

Directions

Line two greased 9 inch baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until crumbly. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Stir in chocolate and coffee. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to chocolate mixture alternately with buttermilk (batter will be thick). Pour into prepared pans.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring sugar, milk and butter to a gently boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in extract.

Invert cakes onto wire racks; drizzle with glaze. Cool completely. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips with milk; stir until smooth.

Refrigerate until spreadable, stirring occasionally. Place one cake on a serving plate; spread with filling. Top with remaining cake. Spread whipped topping over top and sides of cake. Store in the refrigerator. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired.
