Baking with Edel: Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache Frosting

I’ve always loved a good chocolate cake. When I learned how to bake my own, I loved it even more. I think I’ve finally found the chocolate cake recipe that suits my taste and those of my loved ones. If you remember this post, the chocolate cake recipe I used there was different.

a slice of chocolate-y goodness!

I think this new recipe I found is simpler and better. It’s also quite easy to follow. You don’t even need a mixer in making it. A whisker is enough, or even just an ordinary ladle.

The banana cake cooked for a total of an hour in it and tasted heavenly. Not bad for a first time baker like me. Well, I think I just got lucky with the recipe I got. Haha.
