I will be trying this since rum is added to it, thanks
What's this good on? Chocolate cake? Yellow cake? Thanks!
For me this came out very watery. I halved the recipe, and it did not look like ganache. When I whipped it, it never stiffened up. It did taste yummy, but I was not able to use it on my cake.
Ordinary Ganache is 1:1 (ex. 16 fl oz heavy cream to 16 oz chocolate). Rich Ganache is 1: 1.5 (16 fl oz heavy cream to 24 oz chocolate ) and Truffle Ganache is 1:2 (16 fl oz heavy cream to 32 oz chocolate). I found these ratios have worked the best. Just my 2 cents. :-)
Thank You Padraig. Ive been looking for a simple explanation for ganache. I'll have to try these ratios.
tried this but it ended up a watery mess, needed more chocolate in it
