About this recipe: This cake is exactly what it says on the box - heaven! It makes a rather large cake, so it is perfect for birthdays, dinner parties or any other special occasion. The ganache is easy to make and really takes this cake to another level.
Cake still cooking in oven. Had a disaster with the water, sugar, etc mixture. Turned electric ring down to simmer, took my eyes off it for a milli-second and in that time it boiled over ... smoke alarm went off, still trying to get the mess off of my hob! Don't know what the cake will turn out like, I lost some of the mixture but decided to just carry on! Will report back when cake is finished! - 26 Jun 2015
Something else. Cooked as cupcakes for about 20 minutes. - 06 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
I found this recipe on this site about 6 months ago and have used it ever since for ganache/fondant decorated cakes. It is much lighter than a mud cake and tastes devine with good chocolate ganache. I alway baste with strawberry jam syrup before ganaching/icing(fondant) and the cake will stay moist for several days, probably even a week. - 08 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
