A ganache is made from chocolate and heavy cream and can be used for a filling, a glaze or icing. Hot cream is poured over finely chopped chocolate and stirred until smooth. Whether ganache has French or Swiss origins, no one knows, but this rich creamy concoction should be in everyone’s dessert repertoire.
Katrina of bakingwiththeboys chose the chocolate ganache ice cream for this Tuesdays with Dorie. The ice cream is custard based and the ganache is added to the custard, then chilled and frozen in an ice cream maker. After an overnight chill in my refrigerator, the mixture was so thick, I don’t think it needed to be processed in an ice cream maker. Next time, I’ll just skip that step.
Next week, Natalie of ovenlove has chosen Oatmeal Breakfast Bread on page 44 of Baking From My Home to Yours. Sounds yummy to me!
