This ganache can be used in two ways, as a filling and/or poured over a cake.

To use it as a filling, refrigerate it, transfer it to a pastry bag, and pipe it out.

To pour ganache over a cake, melt it in a double boiler and simply pour

it over a cake or layer. To top layers of pastry cream or chocolate mousse with

ganache, pour it on and smooth it with a cake icing spatula.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 9 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • Cooking Directions

    Put the heavy cream in a saucepan and set over medium-high heat. As

    soon as it begins to simmer, remove the pot from the heat. Add the

    chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon to melt the chocolate. Stir in the

    corn syrup.

    Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for about 1 hour. If using for filling,

    soften until pourable in a double boiler over medium heat.

    This recipe was styled by chef Karen Pickus for Good Morning America.
