If you’re looking for a decadent dessert to make, look no further. This Triple Chocolate Cake is the ultimate treat for a chocolate-lover. The moist rich cake studded with chocolate chunks and enrobed in chocolate ganache, this is a treat you’ll not soon forget.
I wouldn’t consider myself a HUGE chocoholic but there are times when I definitely crave the dark stuff. When those times hit, I want chocolate, like serious CHOCOLATE. I like my chocolate rich and dark. So when I was looking through a local cookbook the other day and found a recipe for “Really Good Chocolate Cake,” it stirred up that desire for chocolate. This recipe is a combination of several different recipes I found and it makes one tasty treat.
The cake is made with Golden Barrel Coconut Oil to keep it moist and delicious. And like I said before, there’s even chocolate chunks in the cake. But the real star of the show (for me) is the chocolate ganache on top. I was teaching Finn, my youngest son, how to make ganache. It’s really simple and fun! You simply chop up some chocolate (I used a 59% cacao bar), and put it in a bowl. Then heat up your heavy whipping cream until right before it begins to boil, pour it over the chocolate then let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then take a whisk and stir everything until it’s combined. It’ll be nice and shiny and you’ll want to pour it on everything in sight. After it cools, it hardens slightly and has the texture of fudge. It’s amazing.
This is one cake recipe that needs to be in your baking arsenal. It’ll put a fudgey-toothed smile on anyone’s face. 🙂
