Eggless Chocolate Cake

3 cups all purpose unbleached white flour 
2 cups powdered/icing sugar 
1/2 cup chocolate/cocoa powder 
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg 
1 teaspoon salt 
2 cups cold coffee 
1 cup melted bittersweet dark chocolate 
1 cup pure vegetable oil
1 teaspoon melted butter 

Preheat oven to 350 F

Sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Set aside. Blend all the wet ingredients together and fold into the dry.

Pour into a lined 8" round cake pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a stick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Ganache:
1/2 cup chocolate chunks (60%) or similar 
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Bring heavy cream in a saucepan on medium heat to simmer (don't boil). Pour over chocolate chunks and whisk until chocolate mixture is smooth and shiny. Pour over the cake. Decorate with fresh berries.
