    5. pinch of salt

    7. 1 egg
    8. 2½ tablespoons vegetable oil

    Filling

    Instructions
      Cakes
      1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
      2. In a large mixing bowl, sift the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt.
      3. In a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Add the egg, oil, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and dry ingredients, and beat at top speed until smooth.
      4. Place approximately 20 tablespoon-size scoops of the batter onto a parchment-lined sheet pan.
      5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cakes comes out clean. Allow to cool.
      Filling
      1. Using a stand mixer fitted with a wire whip attachment, whisk heavy cream at medium speed for 7-8 minutes, or until firm peaks begin to show. Add mascarpone and sugar, and whisk until just incorporated. Add lemon juice, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract, and whisk for another 30 seconds.
      Assembly
      1. Once cooled, turn over half of the cakes so the flat side is facing up. Place a dollop of filling on each face-up cake, and top with another cake (flat side face down). Press gently to "glue" the cakes together with the filling.
