Chocolate Fudge Cake II

 There was some leftover cream from quiche that I made a day before and I don't want to waste it since it is not cheap. I imagined the best thing that I could make out of it was chocolate ganache.... so I decided to try this Chocolate Fudge Cake that I found in one website.
 Although the cake is heavy & dense in texture,  the taste is quite mild & less rich. However, the combination of the cake and the ganache perfecting the overall taste. I cannot ask my two boys opinion on this as they are chocoholic and half of the cake was gone in less than an hour. Even my hubby asked for one more additional piece....hehe. I actually wanted to bring some to the office for my colleague but no chance...
 The compliment I give to this recipe is that it is so simple to make which can be prepared in 15 minutes or less (depending on your efficiency of course) because no machine is needed (or actually discouraged in order to achieve such fudge texture). Just use wooden spatula to slowly mix them all.
The above is a close-up on the texture.... make sure you don't over bake to avoid having dry texture.... I've got mine just right.
