betty's chocoholic cake

Hi.  My name is Stephanie and I’m a chocoholic.  I need to be kept away from that lady Betty…she’s such an enabler with her Chocoholic Cake!  I don’t stand a chance against three layers of brownie cake sandwiched and frosted with ganache.  That’s why I had to alter her original cake and make it an ice cream cake.  Actually, that makes no sense whatsoever–  don’t stand a chance against ice cream cake either.

We are only two, so I made a scaled back version of the cake…a third of the recipe got me two six-inch layers.  It is Dorie who mentions in her recipe intro that the brownie layers would be a good base for an ice cream cake.  I followed her fine suggestion and filled my two layers with some coffee ice cream and popped the whole thing in the freezer for a few hours.  I made the ganache recipe, but rather than cool it and use it as frosting, I used it warm as a sauce.  And then I put peanut butter cereal on top.  I’ve lost my chocolate-addicted mind, clearly, but it’s really delicious.  The frozen cake should temper a bit before saucing and serving though, because it’s pretty hard to get a fork through it otherwise.  Also, when it’s tempered, you get the really good fudgy texture and chocolatey taste of the cake layers.

Next time, I may try this the way Betty had intended.  Or else I’ll make a mint chip or raspberry ice cream cake out of it!  For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll.
