Has anyone tried the chocolate tomato cake with mystery ganache on page 87 of the new book? It calls for 1 can/1 cup of tomato soup preferably campbell’s. I’ve tried it twice with middling success. It came out fairly fudgey. At least fudgier than I was expecting.
Admittedly I may have an oven temperature issue but on the second attempt I’m pretty sure the oven was exactly at 350. But besides that issue does anyone know if by 1 can of soup, the intention is for one can of condensed soup or is the intention to dilute the condensed soup. and measure out one cup.
I haven’t eaten Campbell’s soup since childhood and was surprised to find that nearly all varieties including tomato are now condensed.
I made the cake a couple of times diluting the canned soup according to its instructions before proceeding.
As I said the texture was a bit creamier/fudgier than I was expecting. It wasn’t entirely fudge like. There was a crumb but it wasn’t even throughout.
Has anyone tried this cake yet?
