Burned Christmas Cake

Due to a minor error involving old and new measurements and fan ovens our first Christmas cake was severely burned. A bit of internet searching came up with a superb rescue recipe

200 g dark catering chocolate
100g double cream

Make ganache

While still warm blend in 400-800g of less burned cake and some rum

Set on small flan tin on digestive biscuit base

Top with crystallised ginger

Chill/freeze

Eat in small quantities with good ice cream topping

It's better than the original cake. May not be on Weightwatchers approved list though.

Re: Burned Christmas Cake

Sounds reasonable to me. Care to quantify "some" as in Rum?

Re: Burned Christmas Cake

Some in the cake and some in the cook? About a metric glug.
