Another Birthday



…and another excuse to make our favorite mocha cake.
My mother-in-law flew in on her birthday and
we had this cake waiting for her.

Choc-cake-(1)

Whenever I make this cake, the kids always ask to lick the spoon, the bowl of unused chocolate ganache.  I let them.  Sometimes I might even join them.  Couldn’t get good Valrhona chocolate go to waste now, could we?

chocolate ganache - it would be 'wrong' not to lick the spoons. Looks delicious.
