Real Chocolate Chocolate Cake With Ganache
70 mins (prep 20, cooking 50)
7 ingredients
6-12 servings
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.
