Too Easy Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache - New EDC
« on: March 21, 2014, 03:45:54 am »
I thought I'd seen a review of this cake somewhere but couldn't find it under this topic, so have made a new one.  Please delete if I've missed it.  :)

This was very easy and quick to make.  I used a small heart shaped tin which was the perfect size for this cake.

I used the ganache that is in the same book, but instead I used sour cream in place of the thickened cream.  I really like using that as it leaves a lovely tang without it tasting sour.  If you've never used it before I suggest giving it a try sometime to see if you like it.

Again I haven't tried it myself, but my family gave it the thumbs up.  It looked lovely and moist when I cut it.  I like that it doesn't make a big cake too and the amount of ganache in the recipe is the perfect amount.

There are reviews of the recipe from the early edition Julie but it's better to keep the latest edition separate from that in case there have been  changes made.

I love the idea of using sour cream JulieO. I have a heart shape tin the same so I will be a copycat.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

JulieO, perfect as your always are.  Is it worth getting the new EDC?

Thanks girls.  :-*

Bedlam, I like the look of the new book, the way it's set out is more appealing than the old one and there are some changes.  It has made me want to go through and make some of the recipes that I haven't made before.

I know there's a special at the moment where you can get it for $25 from HO, but not sure for how longer that is.  I think it's worth it.  :D

Do you have a consultant Denise, no postage if you go through her.  I don't think there is much longer to go with their offer.

This recipe is far too easy!  I made 24 cup-cakes and stored them in the fridge.  When the grandkids left, I forgot about the left overs until yesterday.  They were still fresh after 1 week! Amazing!

Great idea Olga. I don't know why I didn't think of making this recipe as cupcakes when one doesn't have the correct size tin.
