RECIPE: Giant Triple Chocolate Donut
Check out my Giant Triple Chocolate Donut! Doesn’t it look delicious?
It was just about the best Chocolate “donut” cake I’ve ever had.
Let’s make one!
I used these giant donuts molds I ordered from a neighbor girl’s school fundraiser and as well as a box cake mix. I know this picture is probably a “little” suggestive. Sorry – I promise that wasn’t my intention!!! Anyway, the donut molds!
I baked the cake for 30 minutes.
Then removed it from the mold.
Unfortunately, one of the donut halves didn’t come out in one piece. Dang it! But never fear, I “disguised” it with a ganache so nobody would ever know!
Ganache ingredients: 1/2 C. heavy whipping cream, 8 0z. (1/2 lb.) Chopped Chocolate, 1/2 Tbsp. butter, 1/2 Tbps. of either glucose, honey or corn syrup.
While the cream boiled in a sauce pan, I chopped up the Chocolate. I then added the Chocolate to the cream as well as the butter and one of the above mentioned sugars.
I stirred well until completely melted, then let it set for 5 minutes.
Then the fun part – I poured it over the Giant Chocolate Donut!
My daughter was itching to add some Chocolate chips. I have to admit it looked a LOT better! Plus, I could then call it a Giant Triple Chocolate Donut!
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you it was absolute Chocolate perfection, do I?
And for lack of any better words – absolutely delicious.
Pure Chocolate heaven.
