Directions

  • Set oven to 325F
  • Spray a standard 9x5 loaf pan and line it with a sheet of parchment paper, leaving the ends to hang long. This way you can life the frosted cake out for cleaner cutting.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla and espresso powder.
  • Whisk together the sour cream and milk.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the bowl alternately with the wet, beginning and ending with dry. Blend only until mixed, dont over beat.
  • Turn the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread out evenly. Bake for about 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out without wet batter clinging to it. Check your cake on the early side to avoid over-cooking. Set aside to cool.
  • To make the ganache topping, heat the cream to a simmer and remove from heat. Add the chocolate and let sit for a minute, then stir until everything is melted and glossy. Pour over the cooled cake and then let the ganache firm up in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • If you have used a parchment paper sling, gently pull the cake out of the pan to slice it.
