Coffee Sponge Cake with White Chocolate and Cardamom Ganache!

Stacked cakes are best made with a base of sponge cake. Sponge cakes are easy to make and can be flavored in infinite ways leaving the door wide open for your imagination. As I really love the flavor coffee gives in cakes, I decided to go for coffee and marry flavors that work well with it. The first spice that I thought of as being coffee's ideal pair is cardamom. Between dark chocolate and white chocolate, I find that cardamom works better with the latter, therefore I used it.

The end result was a light, spongy and delicious cake with a spicy and creamy ganache. For extra flavor and a beautiful presentation I made chocolate mirror glaze from +Chef Rachida

Now for the sponge you need: (4 x 15cm pan)
5 eggs
150 g sugar
150 g cake flour
dash of salt
60 g melted butter
2 tsps of coffee melted in 1 tsp of water
1 tsp coffee liqueur (optional)
First you need to put some water in a pan and heat the water to a simmer, Combine sugar, eggs, coffee and liqueur if using in a big bowl and place over the pan with the simmering water. Whisk vigorously for about 5 minutes or until it doubles in size.The mix should reach 60 C.

Turn off the heat and remove the pan with the mix off heat. from the pan, and keep whisking with an electrical whisk until you obtain a pale and really think mixture that is triple in volume! Now fold in the flour and salt, and at the end drizzle over the melted butter and gently fold it in!

Separate the batter into the greased pans and bake for about 15 min. Let them cool for about 10 min then remove the cakes from the pans and let them cool completely. You can make the cake the day before.

For the ganache you need:
450 g white chocolate
300 ml of cream (you can reduce or add more to change the consistency of the ganache)
60 g of butter
1 tsp of ground cardamom
1 tsp of coffee liqueur or coffee melted in water
Chop the chocolate and place it in a bowl. Heat the cream and before it boils pour it over the chocolate, stir to melt then add the butter and stir again. Add the cardamom and coffee and let it cool a bit. Now you can add it as it is over the cake or beat it with a whisk until creamy and fluffy. This is what I did, the ganache becomes really creamy and easier to pipe!

For the assembly:
Place one of the cakes on a cake board, generously frost it then top it with another cake layer and so on.
Decorate as you wish. In my case after frosting the cake I poured some dark chocolate mirror glaze then piped some rosettes from the frosting, sprinkled some dulcey chocoloate and white chocolate shaves, and splashed some gold dust over the rosettes and the glaze!

For the chocolate mirror glaze I made half the batch, and even using half of the amount in this recipe I did not need all the glaze I made.

Now all you need is to cut a piece and dig in! Enjoy!
