Eat more Cake

I am that girl in the office who makes all the birthday cakes. I always try and make something a little different and am always on the lookout for new cakes! I just came across this one and I cannot wait to make it! [I may not be able to wait until the next birthday though!]

DEVIL’S FOOD BAVARIAN TORTE

For the cake: (or use 1 package (18 ¼ oz) devil’s food cake mix)

9 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1½ cups cake flour (not self-rising)
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1½ cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
½ cup strong coffee (or water)
½ cup whole or low-fat milk

For the filling:

8 oz mascarpone cheese, softened
2/3 c packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
2 c whipping cream, whipped
2 tbsp grated semisweet chocolate

Adjust the oven rack to the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter two 9-inch cake pans and line the bottoms with circles of parchment paper. To make the cake layers, sift together the cocoa powder, cake flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl. In the bowl of a standing electric mixer, or by hand, beat together the butter and sugar about 5 minutes until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. (If using a standing electric mixer, stop the mixer as necessary to scrape down the sides to be sure everything is getting mixed in.) Mix together the coffee and milk. Stir half of the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, the add the coffee and milk. Finally stir in the other half of the dry ingredients. Divide the batter into the two prepared cake pans and bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

{If using a mix, prepare according to instructions using two 9″ cake pans.}

To assemble the cake: In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt until fluffy. Fold in cream. Split each cake into 2 layers, place one on serving plate. Spread w/ ¼ of cream mixture. Sprinkle w/ ¼ of chocolate. Repeat layers. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
