I usually like Barefoot Contessa recipes and have made lots of them.  Got this recipe from her book "Entertaining."  <div><br /></div><div>I want to warn everyone about this cake.   I just made it (actually 2 of them--there were about 2 dozen people at the party) for my sister's birthday.  Simply put, it was awful.  I should have known when I dumped 2 cans of Hersheys "chocolate sauce" syrup in (for a double recipe).  I was embarrassed--it was just so sub-par.  You know how most people say "What a great cake!  Thanks for making!"  Well, no one did that , because, frankly, it was just not good!</div><div>Anyway, a word to the wise--DO NOT make this cake.  </div> item not reviewed by moderator and published

I absolutely love your show, Ina. I love this recipe too. Saw you make it on TV the other day, and was quite unaware, and surprised, that you could whip this ganache right up into a frosting! My niece&amp;#39;s birthday is Oct. 3. I will be making my mother&amp;#39;s delicious hot milk cake, and will be frosting it with your ganache frosting. Thank you so much. See you on the television!.
