This is a 1 Layer Moist Chocolate cake recipe. It is easy to make and not too sweet. It was topped with easy to make ganache made of dark and white chocolate bits and heavy whipping cream. This is a very sinful dessert. Enjoy!
Call me old but I do not like the music we have in this era. I do not like that there are so many profanities in the lyrics and I do not like how girls are turned into sex objects and sex are so casual in those lyrics. Although we do not turn on the radio on in our household, I can listen to these music when I drop my daughter to school. In fact, sometimes I do it purposely to start a conversation and I also I think that there are teaching moments in this type of music.
My daughter has grown. Gone are the days when I have to command her what to do and she follows. Now that she is a teenager, I have to have a different approach in teaching her the hard knocks of life and share her my experiences. I’d rather teach her the real world than her learning “stuff” from her friends. For these reasons , in spite of how bad a music is, sometimes I turned the radio on a non Christian station. We listen to the music together and more often than not, she starts talking about her encounters in school and I listen and gently give her some inputs.I have to be careful though, because too much advice, and she shuts down.
She is growing so fast and it worries me. As much as I want to protect her from the world,the truth is that I cannot shield her from her surroundings. There will be kids who will be disrespectful or who speak filthy words or some kids who may live differently from our values, but these are the realities of the world she is in. Rather being averse and judgmental, I might as well be open and to teach her to be smart in her choices and to be respectful. She may roll her eyes but I know she is listening. My goal as a mother is for my daughter is to look back and say, ” My parents taught me well.”
Moving on. This chocolate cake my friends, is moist and not too sweet. The batter is good enough for one layer of cake which your family can consume right of the bat or some for a sweet desserts for the next day. This was frosted with chocolate ganache. I have been trying to teach myself to make some chocolate ganache for a long time, and finally, I made it. I was surprised how easy it was to make. I hope you will try making ganache too and you will feel good about yourself. I used the leftover ganache to coat the strawberry ( shown as decoration on the cake). The frosting tends to get hard when it is left sitting on the counter, so if you are going to coat your strawberry, just reheat the ganache in low heat and roll the strawberries.
