Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Ganache
Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Ganache is a light cake with a deliciously rich topping. This was an easy cake to make from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. The ganache sounded tricky but it really wasn't difficult. The moment the hot cream sputtered furiously when poured into the boiling sugar mixture made me very happy. I was delirious to be in the ganache zone instead of a rock candy science experiment gone bad.
This inadvertently became a Green & Blacks chocolate cake. I haven't a clue how the math works out combining the 70% and 85% but it tasted great, which is what counts. I turned it out of the pan immediately to cool rather than leave it in the pan. This seems to help me keep chocolate cakes from being dry.
