I love any cake that has chocolate and coffee in it! This cake is so fluffy and moist, it makes a very irresistible dessert! I have only tried this recipe in these little ramequins but I think that this recipe would be perfectly fine if doubled and made into a big cake. If you try it let me know how it went! Enjoy!

Ingredients for cake (4 ramekins):
¼ cup brewed coffee
¼ cup of milk
½ tsp of vanilla
115g of flour
2 ½ tbsp. of cocoa
½ tsp of baking powder
¼ tsp of baking soda
Pinch of salt
56 g of butter
¼ cup of granulated sugar
¼ cup of brown sugar
1 egg

For the ganache: 
I decided to try out Pierre Hermes Coffee ganache, and it turned out to be so delicious, even when I did not use his high-end white chocolate and coffee… But I do suggest you use the best white chocolate and the best coffee that you can get your hands on.

Ingredients for the coffee ganache:
200 g cream
200 g white chocolate
10 g of instant coffee

Note: whatever is left over, you can keep in an airtight container and save in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks.

Para o ganache:
Eu decidi experimentar a receita do Pierre Hermes, e acabou por ser tão delicioso mesmo não usando tipo de chocolate branco que ele especifica.  Mas eu sugiro que você use o melhor chocolate branco e o melhor café que você pode colocar as mãos.

Ingredientes para o ganache de café:
200 g de natas
200 g de chocolate branco
10 g de café instantâneo

Nota: o que sobrar, podes guardar num recipiente e guardar no frigorifico por 2 a 3 semanas.
