    Orange and Chocolate genoise cake

    For the Cake
    30g unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for buttering cake pan
    50g unbleached all-purpose flour plus more for dusting cake pan
    20g Dutch-process cocoa
    Pinch of salt
    4 large eggs, at room temperature
    100g superfine sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter and flour a 8-inch cake pan that is 3 inches deep such as a springform mold.
    Sift the flour, the cocoa, and the salt together onto a sheet of parchment paper and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla at high speed until the mixture has tripled in volume and is very thick, about 8 minutes. When the whisk is lifted, the batter will form a thick ribbon as it falls back into the bowl.
    Lower the speed to stir and carefully tap the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. As soon as all the flour has been added to the eggs, stop the machine. Pour in the melted butter, making sure to leave the white, milky solids behind. With a large rubber spatula, using as few strokes as possible, finish folding the flour mixture and butter into the batter until evenly mixed.
    Immediately scrape the batter into the prepared pan, place the pan on a baking sheet, and bake until the cake feels just firm to the touch, about 40 minutes. Transfer the cake to a rack and let it cool for about 5 minutes. Then turn the cake upside down onto a rack to cool. This will flatten the slightly domed top.

    For the Orange Syrup
    50g granulated sugar
    50g brown sugar
    80mL water
    20mL Cointreau
    1tsp orange zest
    1tsp orange extract
    Put the orange zest, sugars and water in a pan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for about 15 mins until syrupy. Remove from the heat and stir in the Cointreau and extract. Alternatively if using orange preserves, dilute orange preserve syrup in low heat with 20mL Cointreau until it is pourable (and won't tear the genoise).

    For the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting
    450g Cream Cheese
    220g butter
    260g powdered sugar
    2tsp grated orange peel
    2tsp orange extract
    Pinch of salt
    Place butter in bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese and beat until well combined and fluffy, about 2 minutes more. Add sugar, orange zest, and salt and beat for 5 minutes.

    For the Chocolate Ganache
    200g bittersweet chocolate, chopped (use chips if available)
    200mL heavy cream

    Heat heavy cream over medium heat. Remove from heat as it starts to shimmer. Add chocolate and let it rest for at least 5 minutes. Slowly fold with a spatula until chocolate fully dissolved.

    Cut cake into four even layers. Set base layer on cake stand and brush liberally with orange syrup. Cover in one fourth of the orange cream cheese frosting. If desired, add chopped orange preserves. Repeat for three layers and top with final layer. Brush with remaining syrup, then cover cake evenly with remaining cream cheese frosting, smoothing with a cake scrapper/spatula. Cover and let rest and set in the fridge for at least four hours. Prepare the ganache and pour over cold cake, smoothing as needed with cake spatula until fully covered. Let ganache set and decorate with more orange preserves.

    Made it several months ago for a birthday and still dreaming of it. Doesn't look great, my ganache was not as smooth as I'd like (didn't have chips so it was just coarsely chopped chocolate and I don't have the patience for smoothing it perfectly). I added a bit of yellow food coloring in the frosting.

    My favorite easy everyday thing to make is Carbonara. It is so simple and you most likely have all the things you need in your fridge.


    -Spaghetti (the best pasta to use)

    -Bacon (or pancetta if you wanna get fancy)

    -Egg yolks


    -Salt & Pepper to taste
