Last week the ALPHA BAKERS were baking a ChocolateTea Cake Genosie.

I have never made a Genosie Chocolate Cake before and the first time I made it didn't look like it raised that much so I decided to make this ChoclateTea Cake again because I thought that the cake layers didn’t cook enough or I didn’t do beat the eggs right and also I think I cooked the choclate too much for the batter, but I know next time lol...lol.. Sorry Marie but I hade to.. P.S. I 'm very happy with the cake and it almost looks like the one in the Baking Bible 😎 !!!!
Cake, it is a Rich, Moist and Chocolatey and I forgot to say that the lemon liquor gives the Chocolatetea Cake more flavor..  
This would be good for people that love chocolate a lot, but not for me....
Would I make this ChocolateTea Cake again "ones in a while"...

I decided to make some changes to the cake, made the cake in two 8 " by 2"high round pans,  used lemon oil in the batter, for the syrup used lemon liquor, added some lemon liquor to the ganache and had to made the (Crème fraîche from the Cake Bible pg. 260)...
Look at that  puffy cake layers!
                 Absolutely Delicious
Spread the ganache on the sides of the cake and on top...
Look at those layers ,  they actually Rose a bit over 1 1/4 inch each layers/ Added the ganache in the middle of the cake and placed the second layer on top.
 I whipped when it was at 75F.
 Cooling off the chocolate ganache. .
 Crème fraîche is in a pan with the heavy cream simmering and added to the chocolate and processed while running the motor. .
 Making the crème fraîche from the cake bible.
 Processing the chocolate small...
 Ready to spray the chocolate layers.
 Ready with the syrup and cooling.
 The chocolate layers are cooling and Scraped the top hard crust off...
 Pans are ready and filled with the batter and into the oven.
 melted the chocolate and whisked in the flour then fold in 1 cup egg mix and them added the rest of chocolate mixture in 3 part into the eggs mixture with a balloon whisk gently mixed it...
Got all the ingredients ready..
Absolutely  Pretty
From The Baking Bible!!


  1. That looks delicious ☺, I always enjoy your postings on here can't wait for what's next, keep the good work up sis 😆

    1. Thank you so much big sister for your kind words, I'm so happy that I remade the cake again, I'm very happy with the results.

  2. I'm so impressed that you made it again right away. I'm glad you got it to turn out just right, but I thought the first one looked good too!

    1. The first one Marie was decorated really good but the layers of the batter didn't turn out so great now I know why , it's because of the chocolate that I think I overcooked and the eggs were a little over beaten too , so I cooked it less the chocolate for the batter and the eggs I whisked them lesser, the layers turned out just perfect and thank you for stopping by...

  3. I can't believe you made this cake again! This one is beautiful too. The crumb on the cake looks perfect and the ganache looks shiny and luscious.
