The best cake/anything with chocolate I’ve ever had is the raspberry chocolate cake from Madeleine Cafe in San Francisco. The cake is chocolate sponge layered and frosted with raspberry-infused chocolate ganache, then topped with fresh raspberries, blood oranges, and raspberry glaze. The cake was a whopping $38 for a 10-incher, but totally worth it! The cake was so moist and the alternating layers of moist sponge and creamy ganache just melted together in my mouth! The raspberry glaze was so intensely flavored too!
I’m just a beginning baker, but I hope to recreate this cake someday. I’m curious as to what Rose recipes I can use to put this cake together.
Here are my ideas…
- chocolate genoise (maybe soaked with a raspberry liqueur syrup) or the moist chocolate genoise?
- Rose has a lot of chocolate ganache recipes. I’m not sure which one to use.
- raspberry glaze: Could I turn Rose’s raspberry conserve into a glaze? Maybe strain out the seeds and reduce a bit more?
