ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: White Velvet Cake with Milk Chocolate Ganache (page 17) makes a tasty ganache with high cacao % milk chocolate. i change the making method for the ganache.
1- melt chocolate in the oven set at 110 oF, takes about 4 hours, but it is completely unattended: no need to chop the chocolate, no need to stir, and zero chances of overheating (indeed, u can keep the chocolate at 110 oF for days!)
2- scald the cream, then cool til 110 oF
3- blend the two with an immersion blender
