Ok, a bit last minute, but here’s my September contribution. It’s the 31. of September today, right? And I baked it yesterday….
I got my Heavenly Cakes, and of course I wanted to try something new! So I made the Valentines Cake - forgot the exact name. It’s the chocolate cake that’s saturated with chocolate ganache after baking. I made 1/2 the recipe and baked it in a 6” pan instead of a 9” heart shaped pan, and it worked out ok.
It baked fine, but it looked horrible after I poured the ganache on. It was not even, and blotchy… And the sides were bad, too. The recipe calls for raspberries on it which I think would be great. However, in order to help with the looks and to complement the chocolaty taste I decided to put an amaretto white chocolate ganache on. So - Tadaaaa - here it is.
It tastes fabulous btw. Very chocolaty, nice and dense and fudgy, but not too sweet. Really really good!
