I apologize for not commenting on your blogs as much lately. My life is a bit crazed at the moment, and now I’m fighting a cold. However, luckily for me, I was able to make this mocha brownie cake before my symptoms took over. And, I must say, I just love the look of the chocolate ganache, although my photo might not do it justice.
The cake itself was over-the-top chocolately, obviously, so make sure you have plenty of milk to drink. The baking of the cake and preparing of the ganache were easy enough, but this cake definitely requires a good amount of time, what with the cooling of the cake itself and setting of the ganache icing between layers and on top. Other than that, I can see myself making this again for a special occasion but not regularly as I’m not a huge chocolate fan.
