Triple Layer German Chocolate Cake with Ganache
German chocolate cake is not only my brother's and my cousin's favorite cake for their birthdays (see Colleen's German Chocolate Cake), it is my sister, Christine's.
Her good friend, Vicky, made this decadent delight by using a Food Network recipe (see below) and enhancing it with ganache* for Christine's birthday earlier this month.
Vicky says that it makes three layers of cake, not two, as the recipe states.
Ganache is made with chocolate and heavy cream. For example, 16 ounces of bittersweet chocolate and 16 ounces of heavy cream. Heat the cream and pour it over the chocolate and food process until smooth.
Christine says "my favorite thing to do is eat the leftovers for breakfast."
Thanks for sharing the recipe and photo, Vicky!
