Best Traditional Chocolate Cake – Karen’s Chocolate Ganache Cake

I’ve previously declared Classic Confection’s Nono’s Oblivion as the best chocolate cake. That was a special kind of chocolate cake made with praline and mousse.

For the traditional 3 layer chocolate cake with filling and frosting, the best cake I’ve ever eaten is Karen’s Kitchen’s Chocolate Ganache Cake.

Thanks to Maribel who sent me this cake all the way from California through her dil,Rosh in Manila.

This cake has to be the moistest chocolate cake I’ve ever eaten. You can actually see the ganache filling ooze out from the middle of the cake. The cake nor the filling isn’t too sweet. I’d even describe it as semi-sweet. That’s perfect for me since I love dark chocolate.

A whole 8″ round cake costs P700. That’s really a good deal for such a scrumptious cake.

There are so many kinds of cakes on Karen’s web site but their chocolate ganache cake is still the bestseller.
