- The oven should be set at 350°F (175 degrees C). Cake pans need to be oiled and floured. Grease the parchment paper and use it to line the bottoms.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- The butter should be creamed up in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add the granulated sugar and beat for about 5 minutes, or until it is light and fluffy. Beat well after each addition of the eggs, one at a time. The flour mixture should be added and just barely mixed.
Scatter the chocolate chips over the batter and mix well. Divide the batter among the prepared pans. A toothpick put into the middle should come out clean after 25 minutes of baking. Ten minutes of in-pan chilling time should be allowed before transferring the cakes to wire racks to finish cooling.
For the truffle frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Add the heavy cream and beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the cocoa powder just until incorporated after adding it. Add the chocolate chips to the frosting and thoroughly combine.
To assemble the cake: Place 1 cake layer on a serving platter. Frost the top of the cake with half of the truffle frosting. Repeat the process, frosting the second layer and placing it on top of the first. With the remaining frosting, frost the cake’s top and sides.
- Cake can be served refrigerated or at room temperature.
