What’s funny to me is the serendipity of life because recently I’ve been brewing up a lot of Earl Grey Tea with Chocolate flakes, and it was perfect for this cake. For the ganache I used an orange/lemon black tea and it imparted a sultry/citrusy flavour. Together, this chocolate cake has such interesting and delightful flavours, it’s indescribable. – Earl Grey and Chocolate Tea from David’s Teas: Being that my friend Karen was celebrating her birthday (and me too), I carted the cake up to her BEAUTIFUL four season “cottage” on a clean, clear tranquil frozen lake (this is no slouchy place) and served it while playing a game of cards. The cake was warmly and enthusiastically received. After all, how often does someone bring you a beautiful chocolate genoise, syruped with black tea and covered with a citrusy chocolate ganache? It was a real treat.
