Out-Cakes from Rose's Heavenly Cakes: Deep Chocolate Passion
Nov 18, 2009 | From the kitchen of Rose
The Deep Chocolate Passion Cake is one of the most exciting, revolutionary, and versatile cakes in this book. It serves as the base for:
The German Chocolate Cake
The Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
The Designer Cupcakes
The Deep Chocolate Passion Wedding Cake
Preparing the Cake Pan for the Batter
The exceptionally liquid batter fills the pan only 1/4 to 1/3 full.
But, the batter rises to the top of the pan when baked.
Coating the sides of the pan with Baker's Joy (oil and flour) gives the smoothest sides but shrinks in slightly at the top.
Not coating the sides of the pan results in a rougher crumb but perfectly straight sides. If coating with butter cream this is the best choice but if using a non-stick pan and care the sides will look fine uncoated as well
