Notes

  • This cake is undoubtedly best finished with a rather bitter ganache. Use semi-sweet chips to create a gorgeously dark ganache which you then drizzle over top. Serve with true vanilla bean ice cream.
  • Because of the leavening agent, this cake will rise. After it has cooled, flip it back upside down and shave off the bottom to flatten it nicely for better presentation. Save garbage cake for later.
