Perfect cake victory

Posted on

 

So I have tried on various occasions to come up with a perfect chocolate sponge cake. One that can make hearts melt and mouth water.

And at last I managed to make the miracle happen.

So this is what my perfect sponge cake looked like.

I realized that right amount of fresh cream + right amount of eggs = perfect sponge cake

Now I wanted to push my luck further and decided to go with creating a ganache icing for the cake and ended up with another star on my shoulder.

End result????

When I look at my own creation, I can’t help but feel proud.

Here is the recipe for the cake and ganache:

Ganache:

  • 450 ml fresh cream
  • 50 ml Liquid glucose
  • 250 ml dark chocolate
  • Sugar to taste (only if you chocolate does not have sugar)

 

Method:

  • In a deep pan, mix cream and glucose till the mixture comes to boil.
  • Add sugar in the mixture and take it off the heat. 
  • Pour the cream mixture on the chocolate and mix till the chocolate has melted and texture of the mixture is nice, glossy and chocolaty. (yummy)
  • Put the mixture in the refrigerator to set.

 

Cake:

  • 250 ml fresh cream
  • 250 ml sugar (make powder of the sugar once you have measured it)
  • 250 ml all purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp good quality cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • one tsp vanilla essence
  • one tsp baking powder
  • one pinch salt
  • one pinch baking soda (soda bi-carb)

 

Method:

  • Put the oven to preheat on 200 degree
  • In a bowl mix cream, sugar, eggs, and vanilla essence. Whisk the mixture till sugar grains have melted.
  • In another bowl mix flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix the dry mixture well
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture (cream mixture). Mix the mixture well.
  • Pour the mixture in a greased cake mould and put it in the oven for close to 45 min or till well cooked.
  • Set the oven to 180 degree
  • Once your cake is done, take it out of the oven and keep it to cool.
  • When it has cooled down, cut the cake from middle.
  • apply a generous helping of Ganache.
  • Place the top cover and apply another coat of Ganache.
  • Make swirls on the top with the help of your finger and lick the left over ganache off your fingers

 

Tadda….. Your cake is ready 🙂
