chocolate potato cake with chocolate ganache

My One Green Planet recipe for the month of June is this Chocolate Potato Cake with Chocolate Ganache. I made this same cake last year but with a raspberry preserve frosting. This time around I added more chocolate to the chocolate with the chocolate and the chocolate on top of chocolate chocolate chocolate.

All of that chocolate is for you, Mom.

Yeah, hi. It’s me, your daughter. I see you there, reading this blog.

Okay stop looking over your shoulder, I don’t ACTUALLY see you right now. But I know you’re reading because you tell me that you read this blog.

Won’t it be embarrassing for you if you never ever bring this up and so I know that when you say you’re reading the blog, you’re actually wrapped up in a blanket watching The Real Housewives of NJ/GA/NY/Californiatowns instead?

I know that’s not going to happen. That’s why I made this cake for you even though we are miles and miles apart. And then I ate it and I thought about how much you’d like it. But I couldn’t share any of it with you, you see. Because of the miles and miles.

So here’s a picture of a cake that I knew you’d like that I will make for you in the future. I promise.

Also, please tell Dad I love him and he can have some future cake, too.

Love,
Nikki

  1. The Real Housewives I watch are over for the season or you would be right in being wrapped up in a blanket with Moose (my dog named after Nikki’s husband) on my lap. Eating the cake at the same time would be awesome!
