So I tried.. Did not work out the way I had in mind:-( Only at the end of making my ganache I realised my scale was defect. Too late.. I was a bit tired en was weighing the cream. I had a cup of 250 ml cream and used my scale to get 232 gram. Put the ful 250 ml into it, still no 232 gram.. With my dull brain I just thought ‘Hey, strange, this cream is so much lighter than water, never realised that it takes so much cream to get to 232.” Yes, need some sleep…. And then added to much raspberrysauce as well.
Then finally some light shone trough and realised it was the scale.. “@*&^$(*)^%” Too late.
Let it firm up overnight and it was indeed too thin the next morning.
Used it anyway, but I couldn’t get my cake covered in a smooth way, even when refrigderated. The cake ended up looking very ‘home-made’ (understatement).
Anyway. The taste was excellent. Really really good. First time to make a génoise, turned out nice as well, needs some more practice to get the best bakingtime/ temperature. The combination of the cake was heaven in cake. The layers looked very pretty, even with the thin ganache.
Then the good news: I was given the Cake Bible book this weekend! So happy!
Then the strange thing; I saw the raspberry ganache recipe is in this book as well, but there it says a different % chocolate. Max 53 %, in stead of the 60-62 in RHC??? So according to CB I had the right % after all. ????
