I wanted to make ganache from a long time finally I made it, it tasted awesome and my chocolate ganache cake looked and tasted awesome.the recipe is simple and easy to do, so here goes the recipe.(the above pic is where I have decorated my chocolate cake with the ganache I prepared and also some chocolate icing).
Preparation Time: 5 minutes.
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
makes: 1 cup
Chocolate – 1 cup (semi sweet) chopped
Cream – 1 cup
Oil or butter – 1table spoon
Rum – 1 tspn (optional)
Place cream in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Pour over chocolate and let stand until chocolate has softened, about 5 minutes.
Then add the oil or butter and rum and gently stir the chocolate and cream until it is completely mixed well. Let it cool down and voila it’s ready to use.
*I used amul cream, if you’re using the ganache as it is its fine, you can use amul fresh cream.
* if you want to wipe the ganache, then you need to use the heavy whipping cream , the amul cream won’t do justice for the whipped version of ganache.
* I used ordinary cooking vegetable oil and the taste was good so it’s your choice what you’re going to use, or you can use olive oil too.
* using rum is optional; if you have any other liquor you can use it or totally omit that part.
