I'd been drooling over one of the recipes in Hannah Kaminsky's My Sweet Vegan cookbook for a while now. So this was a great opportunity to try it and everyone loved it! It was the Decadent Almond Cake. I'll definitely make this again...I only made a few changes to the recipe. I used almond milk instead of soy and I used whole wheat flour in place of the all purpose and soy flours. I also replaced half of the oil with unsweetened applesauce (I probably could've replaced it all!). I only used 12 oz of chocolate for the ganache, and as it turned out, there was way more ganache than I needed! I wonder if it'll freeze well.....otherwise I'll have to eat it....hehehe......ohhh, maybe I can dip the Louisiana strawberries in it for a dessert!!
And it was definitely a great ganache recipe....I'll use it whenever I make a cake again....any cake! Wonder what would happen if I added a little coffee to the recipe...hmmmm.....
So thanks Dave, for giving me the opportunity to make this cake, and thanks Hannah Kaminsky, for this amazing recipe :) (check out her blog: BitterSweet)
