Birthday Cake For My Mother In Law


Yesterday, we celebrated my mother in law's birthday. Last year, she made my birthday cake so I thought I would return the favor! I have only made one other cake before but I was willing to try one out. I asked her what kind of cake she would like and she said Triple Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Ganache. I said it was my pleasure. 


I went on Pinterest and searched for Triple Chocolate Pound Cake - here is the recipe I found. You must use it! Triple Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe --- Nancy has a wonderful blog too so you should follow it! She was super sweet and helped me figure out the cooking time for this cake when you baked it in round pans. 


I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream because I forgot to get some. It was DELICIOUS!  Everyone loved it too. I had rave reviews! Let me know when you make it! 


The chocolate ganache was very simple! 9 oz bittersweet or milk chocolate and 1 cup heavy whipping cream. Bring the heavy whipping cream to just a boil and then mix it with the chocolate until smooth. Let it cool if you want it to be thicker then whip it up. So yummy!
