I made Betty’s Chocoholic Cake from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan as part of my Mother’s Day Brunch. This rich chocolate cake is not for the faint of heart, comprised of three layers of cake which are more brownie-like than cake and topped with ganache.
I served the cake with fresh whipped cream which it needed as it was so rich. I should have also used raspberries to bring a little tartness to the party. My son had a scoop of vanilla ice cream which he enjoyed. You really need to be a chocolate lover for this one. My guests enjoyed it but thought it was too sweet.
Thanks to my son who was my photographer for this cake. To see what others made go to the Tuesdays with Dorie website.
