I had my friend Lauren over for dessert, wine, and the finale of Revenge last night. Does anyone else watch that show? LOVE IT! I needed something quick and easy to make for dessert so I decided to try a recipe that I saw on Pinterest. You can find the recipe here.
Although it only required a few ingredients, I have to say that it was a bit pricey due to the purchase of the Triple Sec which is not something I typically keep on hand.
I liked that it used a store bought angel food cake which was definitely a time-saver and poking the holes and adding the orange liqueur/orange juice mix was a nice touch! Next time I'm going to add double the amount because I think it would have made it even better.
My only real critique, aside from the cost, was the thickness of the chocolate ganache. Hindsight is 20/20 and next time I will thin it down a little more with the cream.
All in all, the recipe was quick, easy, and delicious. Now that I have the orange liqueur I will definitely make this again. Caleb loved the ganache and was eating it out of the pan!
Sometimes the simple things are the best things.
