This is perfect for the Darn Good Chocolate Cake and the Chocolate Truffle Cake Filling

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 (1 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares, chopped
  • 12 cup whipping cream


  1. Microwave chocolate and whipping cream in medium glass bowl at High for 1 minute until melted and smooth, Stirring once. (I used a double boiler its just the same).

  3. Frosts the top and sides of double layer cake.

I havent met anyone who doesnt love ganache and its so easy to make! I love this recipie for dinner parties but when it is just my husband and i, i like to throw in a little red wine and layers of strawberries.

This was super easy, and kills the myth that Ganache is the exclusive territory of the professional chef! I made my husband a birthday cake, covered the cake in basic chocolate frosting and then put it over a cookie sheet on a wire rack and poured this over the top of the cake. Set it in the fridge for an hour and viola! Hubby said his favorite part was the ganache, thanks mizchella!

Wow this is good and so easy. I couldn't believe how quick this is to make, pretty fool proof. A nice chewy ganache that gets hard when placed in the fridge. A dark chocolate coating of goodness to cover any deserving cake. Thanks so much for sharing, I will be making this ganache again and again.
