    Noo's Note:

    I saw this recipe being made on Good Food Live one day and it looked delicious. I now use this cake in my baking rotation and there is never a crumb left. Try and use the best quality chocolate you can-it does make a difference. For a variation on the ganache, try adding some grated orange zest or chopped mint or even some finely chopped nuts.

      I had troubles with the conversions on this. I am going to attempt to make it again after I get a new kitchen scale. Made for PRMR.

      Very nice cake. I did convert this to U.S measurements, though they were precise measurements, came as close as I can. Ending result was a nice chocolaty cake,and moist. Also thought the corn flour was a nice touch to this too.

      Yum, not a sweet cake at all, very adult flavored. Using corn flour was great and provided a wonderful flavor and texture. We were out of heavy cream, so we added some cornstarch to the ganach and it still turned out wonderful. We topped it with chopped dry roasted peanuts and served with whipped cream. Great, easy, and quite a unique recipe, thanks so much for sharing! :)
