As of today, when a chocolate cake is not an experiment…it must be F&W’s Mom’s or Rose’s DCP.  Somehow my pantry was totally lacking cake flour (except King Arthur Unbleached (also unopened).  ((Do not know how I let that happen). 

You see here the result of using All Purpose Flour…there is a dip just as Rose says there would be.  I made Raspberry Ganache because I had some raspberry sauce from a recent cake.  And, I wanted to practice the Lacquer Glaze again…... Of course, working in the kitchen until 2am results inpatience…  I poured at 94 degrees instead of 82. 

I am having a tea on Friday and will likely bake DCP or a small DCP and a small Mom’s.

Those pics look great and I’ll bet it tastes great, too!  I make the DCP with 100% AP flour all the time and it never dips but I make in little one cup pans, so it would prrobably work for cupcakes or something like that.

In theory, the KAF unbleached cake flour should work with any oil cake or cake with melted butter, just not with a softened butter cake.  If you try it please report back!

Tea sounds lovely smile

Thank you, Julie.  That is good to know re: the KAF unbleached cake flour.  I am sure I will have an opportunity to try it soon…

Thank you Anne, the Raspberry Ganache tastes delicious.  I did not even use the full amoutn of raspberry sauce the recipe in RHC called for.  I made up the difference with cream and used the called for amount Chambord.

I agree with CRenee, that is very good to know. I didn’t realize that. Thank you Julie
