Hot Cream Method
- Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl – set aside
- Pour cream in a saucepan and bring to an almost boil but do not boil. (I heat it in the microwave for a minute)
- Next, pour hot cream over the chocolate.
- Cover and let sit for a minute
- Stir until smooth.
- Tip: the heat in the cream should be just enough to melt the chocolate, so keep stirring. For some reason, if you still have unmelted bits of chocolate, place the bowl over another bowl of hot water and stir till melted. A little heat is all it takes.
- Break the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl,
- Pour cream over the chocolate
- Place the bowl in the microwave for a min on high.
- Stir well until you have a smooth ganache
- If necessary – continue to heat in microwave at 30 sec intervals until you have a smooth mix.
Consistency for covering a cake
- Ganache rested may not necessarily be ideal to just start using.
- The ideal consistency is peanut butter consistency.
- You want to be able to hold the ganache on the spatula and spread it around the cake.
- The best way to bring it to consistency
- In cold weather – stick it in the microwave for 10 secs
(when it comes to chocolate 10 secs is a lot so don’t’ over-heat)
- If the ganache was in the fridge resting it out for an hour works too.
- If you live in a hot an humid climate – just a vigorous stir with a spatula is all you need.
