    Kay Demonbren's Note:

    This recipe is from Colette Peters, in a wonderful book called Cakes To Dream On. This is one of the many recipes I tested when making my daughter's first birthday cake. Fabulous filling, couldn't ask for any better. I made one batch using almond extract, and one using 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 orange extract.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate (chips or chopped blocks, I used 60% bittersweet)
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 2 teaspoons extract (optional) or 2 teaspoons flavoring (optional) or 2 teaspoons liqueur (optional)


    1. 1
      Put the chocolate in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan, heat the cream just until it starts to bubble.
    3. 3
      Pour the cream over the chocolate; make sure all the chocolate is covered by the cream (push some pieces down if you need to).
    4. 4
      Cover the bowl and let it sit there, undisturbed, for 10 minutes, until the chocolate has melted.
    5. 5
      Whisk the mixture until the chocolate is dark and shiny, then cool to room temperature, or stick it in the fridge until ready to use.
    6. 6
      If you refrigerate the filling before you put it on the cake, it will get very hard, and you'll need to pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it up.
    7. 7
      You can, of course, pour it over the top of cake while it's still warm for a beautiful, smooth, shiny ganache topping.

      This is very rich and very good. It takes a very long time to set up although that may be because I cut down the chocolate to 8 ounces (which is a whole box of Bakers semi-sweet). I did put it in the fridge and it did thicken so just be prepared for a wait. It did not need more chocolate in my opinion! No complaints at our birthday table. Thanks for the recipe.
