  • Instant Pot Inner Pot - I like to have an extra inner pot available because of how much cooking I do in my Instant Pot. It comes in really handy when I want to put a lid on the inner pot and refrigerate the leftovers, or mix up ingredients the night before to save time at the end of the day.
  • Silicone Lid for Instant Pot- I'm not sure how I lived without this one. Having a silicone lid for my Instant Pot has made life so much easier. It is perfect for adding ingredients a day or two ahead of time.

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!

  • Can a dog have Chocolate Bundt Cake? Definitely not. Please, prevent your dog from eating cake, much less chocolate. If your dog eats a small amount of chocolate, he may have an upset stomach, vomiting, or diarrhea. However, if you consume larger amounts, muscle tremors, seizures, irregular heartbeats, internal bleeding may occur, which can lead to death.
  • Can a cat have Chocolate Bundt Cake? Do not give your cat sweets or desserts, the high sugar content does not add any nutritional value to its diet. Above all, never give him chocolate. Chocolate contains theobromine and the cat has a metabolism that lacks the ability to eliminate this substance. Therefore, if it accumulates in large quantities in the feline's blood, it is toxic and deadly for him.
