About Chocolate Ganache | Basic | Recipe

I use Ganache to fill up a cake or glazed a cake with it and even made truffles with it. I follow a very basic recipe which I first learned from Joy of Baking. 2 simple ingredients of cream and chopped chocolate makes for the best deal.

Ingredients to make Chocolate Ganache | Basic |

  • 250 grams - dark chocolate cut into small pieces
  • 200 ml - heavy whipping cream (I used Amul)
  • 1 tablespoon - unsalted butter

How to make Chocolate Ganache | Basic |

  1. Put chopped chocolate in a large heat proof bowl & keep aside.
  2. In a saucepan, heat cream & butter on medium heat. As soon as it starts to boil, remove from flame & pour over chopped chocolate. Allow it to stand without mixing for few minutes (3-4). Do not stir as we do not want to incorporate air.
  3. Using a wooden spoon/ rubber spatula or whisk, gently stir by beginning in the center & gently moving out to the edge of the bowl. When the chocolate is fully melted & mixture is smooth, add any liqueur or liquid flavourings at room temp.

My Tip:

Allow it to cool down completely & set properly. Before storing, cover with a piece of plastic wrap pressed on the top of the ganache so a film doesn’t form. It can be stored at room temperature in a cool corner for 2 days & freeze up to 3 months.
