Part 1: 9:27am After searching high and low for the ideal Chocolate Butter cake recipe, I’ve decided to settle on this one http://www.cookstr.com/recipes/chocolate-butter-cake. It has all the ingredients that I think will make a wonderful tasty chocolate cake. If it turns out well, I’ll give a loaf to my neighbor for Christmas.
Part 2: 2:39pm Well, the recipe makes two loaf of 8″x3.75″ pan. It is now in the fridge to cool. Can’t wait to try. Now for the next part, i am going to look for a ganache recipe to frost the cake. Yum!
Part 3: 7:05pm
Well, I think the cake itself is just okay. There is something missing.. I just can’t put a finger to it. It’s supposed to be chocolate butter cake but it does not taste very buttery nor does it taste of brandy. I would say the recipe is about 3.5 stars. The ganache on the other hand was excellent. I think I have Ghiradelli to thank. All the same i’m sure we have no problems finishing of this cake for Christmas.. to bad Ben is still to little to have any.
