I had a very specific idea in mind for the cake I wanted to bake today so I had to scout around to find a recipe for the cake as well as the filling. Since I was making a chocolate layer cake with no frosting, I was after a moist, dark chocolate cake with a rich, billowy cream filling. For the cake, this recipe fit the bill. I chose this basically for the reference, as I’ve made it many times over many years – it’s a darned good and reliable chocolate cake recipe that really passes for a homemade cake (unlike yellow cake mixes for the most part). The ganache made with Cool Whip and chocolate has always intrigued me and I’m sure it would be an adequate substitute for the real thing. That said, I’m probably not likely to try it, however, since the real thing, with real cream, requires no more effort and will have a bigger pay-off. This cake, just as I expected, was just what I needed paired with the filling from “Chocolate Sandwich Cookies l,” also from this site.
