I mentioned watching FX’s The Bear in a previous post.
I mention it again because that chocolate cake Marcus makes. Omg.
Every time he pours the chocolate ganache on top, I die a little. And I’m not even a fan of cake. Or all-chocolate cakes. I much prefer cookies (as you well know) or a berry flavored anything to cut through sweetness.
However, after watching The Bear twice, I was tempted to make a chocolate cake of my own. Results:
I did end up adding strawberries. And for next time (there will be a next time!) I will know to make the ganache a better consistency. I added too much heavy whipping cream, and it was was too thin.
You live, you learn, and then you get thicker ganache. Obviously.
