Coffee and Cocoa are made to be together, nature already decided that!
Wherever there are cocoa plantations, there are also coffee plantations, if nature believes this match is meant to be together, we ought to listen and recreate that in the kitchen. This is what this cake is all about. It is the appreciating and harvesting of these two exotic beans, then extracting the essence of their flavour to mix them together in perfect harmony. The chocolatey texture and flavour of ganache mixed with coffee syrup over a coffee syrup drenched chocolate cake… For all of us coffee and cacao lovers, it does not get any better.
You can always serve this cake only dressed with the coffee syrup without the ganache bit, and on other days lavish it up a bit with that smooth and creamy ganache… beautiful however way you make it!
