Chocolate Boozy Orange Cake
« : 06 Kasım 2019, 05:54:31 »
Well basically it is an email conversation we had at about 4:00 ish. I had to make something quick. Mm .. fast and delicious. So the way back, I decided in the car that I would make a chocolate cake, sandwiched with Grand Marnier mousse that causes one of my favorite liquour Cointreau as well and I have not used it yet because it bought in duty free shops in Seoul. Have some eggs from the grocery store and I almost always have oranges at home, I know making things with oranges will not be a hassle.

at 5.30pm ish, make a chocolate cake, put in the oven. Walking the dog, bum around, the mother came back to cook, now I have to be really careful not to have tau chu sauce in my orange juice as she was cooking fish with sauce chu tau. Come 7:00, makes great marnier mousse, assembled cake. Make some candied orange peel and julienne fall orange segments with some sugar and Grand Marnier. Taking a bath, mousse checked if it has been set. Make a quick ganache poured over a cake, set to relax for a while more. Watching tv, oranges arranged above, appears a candle, then it's time to go for yum char.

Char place yum arrived, we asked to wait to light candles and bring a cake for the birthday girl (oh late actually). Birthday girl has been stoned look on her face more than surprised that he wants to tell the waiter that they got the wrong table and that there was no one's birthday here. Lol, well of course it is one that is overdue. Better late than not at all.

Photos are not too good, not smooth ganache, decor, whether it is as orange as it can get. But a great taste, mousse was so light and fluffy. The only downside is the rice crispy base that does not have the crispness. All in all, for the 'quick cake' was pretty good. I would skip the recipe for brown rice krispies cause I do not think it's good, it might be better feuilletine layer. one of those 'experimental' recipes. Feel free to.... take the plunge and give it a try. LOL.

2. Make a chocolate cake. You can use chocolate cake recipe, except for flourless. Torte for 2 slices, 2 cm each layer.If using rice krispies or feuilletine layer, the cake should be only about 1.5 cm thick

3. While the chocolate cake cake, make Boozy orange segments and candied orange peel. Cut the skin off an orange and cut out segments. Well I can not really explain how this is done correctly, but all you do is slide your knife against the inside of the white membrane from both sides, then the orange segments out nice n clean. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle with caster sugar and some Grand Marnier. Stir and let sit until ready to use.

4. Make candied orange peel. Using a peeler, peel the orange peel, then julienne orange peels into long strips. In a pot, bring the sugar, salt and boiling water, then let it reduce to 2/3.

6. To assemble, put a piece of chocolate cake in the bottom in the "ring of 6 cake (lets assume that no krispee here in the rice cake), using a brush, soak some syrup on the cake. Pour 1/2 of grand marnier mousse. Then add another layer of chocolate cake, syrup, mousse. then cover and let it set in the refrigerator for 1 hour. If there is rice krispies or feuilletine at the bottom, adding that the first to the bottom ring of cake, then only the chocolate cake.

7. Make Chocolate Ganache. In a bowl, pour in cream and chocolate buttons (or diced). Put in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well. When melted, stir in the butter. If not, heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds then add the butter. Stir and let it cool down abit.

8. when the cake has set, remove the cake ring and pour the ganache over the cake. Put it in the refrigerator to set further.
