In our house special occasions and holidays often call for chocolate. Sometimes the special occasion is a birthday or our anniversary but sometimes, it’s just report card day. When I was a kid, my Mom would often have a treat on report card day, just because, and before she knew what my grades were.
So, it’s really only been the last few years that I’ve faithfully been using my Silpat silicone baking mats. They are so much more convenient than parchment paper, and create no waste. Plus it’s an investment that pays for itself. No more buying parchment which saves money. I was excited to get one of the new round ones for cake pans. Works like a charm, the cake released perfectly.
A little bit about this cake. It’s chocolaty! Rich and delicious but not overly sweet. If you’re planning this cake for a special occasion and are managing time, the ganache can be made a couple of days in advance. Reheat it to pouring consistency. Be sure to leave enough time for the ganache to set once you’ve poured it over the cake.
Like yesterday’s post for Cheddar and Chive Eggs over Cheesy Hash Brown Waffles, I used Eggland’s Best eggs in this recipe. They are an excellent source of so many vitamins and nutrients.
