Chocolate Hazelnut Stack Cake
Very much inspired by Kristy of My Little Space (Thanks Kristy for sharing), I wasted no time to make this irresistible chocolate stack cake once I got hold of all neccessary ingredients. This fabulous cake is very simple to make and I had slightly modified the recipe.
- Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
- Add in vanilla extract and whipping cream, mix well.
- Fold in the dry ingredients to form a soft dough.
- Divide dough into 2 portions and wrap with a plastic, flatten and chill for 1/2 hour.
- Roll dough over to a 9×13″ pan lined with baking paper.
- Cover the dough with a plastic sheet and use roller pin to roll evenly.
- Bake at 170C for 20-25 mins then leave to cool completely and cut into half.
- Melt chocolate in double boiler until smooth and set aside, leave to cool down a little.
- Gently boil milk and whipping cream together, pour over melted chocolate and use hand whisk to stir well till smooth then add rum.
- Sandwich the shortbread pastry with chocolate glazing to create stack.
- Then pour the rest over the cake letting it fall down the sides and smoothing to cover with a palette knife.
- Put stack cake in fridge for few hours or over night before slicing.
Lovely blog you have. I recently bought BarryCacao Mexique66% and it has a sourish aftertaste, maybe it is the licorice.
What do you think howI can I use it for Chocolate Ganache.I dun want to waste it but am clueless what else to do with it.
Please help and advise.
I Dun like the taste. What can I use it for and what can I add to makethe chocolate sweeter?
If you want the chocolate to be sweeter, you can use the semi sweet chocolate. If you're from S'pore, you can get the selbourne brand from Phoon Huat.
Thanks for sharing this recipe! I have always wanted to do this cake, but not sure how to do it.
