My Chocolate Ganache Always Curdles. What am I Doing Wrong?
If you’re someone who always nails the chocolate cake, but messes up the ganache, we feel you.
A lot of us tend to struggle with it, and while it does seem simple, there is quite a bit that could go wrong, and you could end up with curdled or grainy ganache, which is not what you would want.
Usually, the ganache splits because of the improper ratio of fat to fluid. So basically, making a simple switch like swapping the butter for some milk, or switching to a chocolate that has lower fat content could help.
Another important point to remember is to avoid overheating or overcooking the chocolate, because that can again, cause the fat in it to separate.
Whether you’re adding cream or butter, always make sure you’re melting the ingredients at a lower temperature and not on high heat.
Topping Ideas & Suggestions
Okay, so you’ve got both your chocolate cake and the gorgeous ganache ready.
What’s next? Just taking a teeny bit of extra effort with the presentation and toppings can really help you take your easy dessert up a notch.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
- You could dust a little powdered sugar over the top, to give it a more elegant look and feel.
- Crunchy crushed nuts are again, an excellent and versatile topping option. You can opt for crushed almonds or walnuts- they taste great and compliment the flavor of the cake too.
- If you’re trying a bundt cake that has neutral, summer-y flavors like vanilla and lemon, you could replace the chocolate ganache for a basic vanilla frosting or cream cheese frosting, and then top it with some berries and lemon zest.
- And of course, if nothing else seems like the right fit, you can always top the cake with some cherries or sprinkles- or both!
