Chocolate Ganache Cake

It was my hubby’s birthday and I thought of making a cake with strong chocolate flavour. This dense cake offers an intense chocolate experience.

This super soft moist cake is very simple to make. I had already  prepared basic chocolate cake yesterday, so today for assembling the cake the only thing that I want to do is the preparation of chocolate ganache. Here I have used dark chocolate for making ganache. You can even use milk chocolate if you don’t want a strong chocolate flavour. Let’s move on to the recipe.
