Chocolate and Peach Cake is delicious chocolate cake covered with ganache and finished with some tinned peaches and swirls of cream .

Chocolate and Peach cake was made last year on our holiday to London . I baked the cake at a relative’s house . They love eggless bakes , but don’t get them easily . When I offered to bake they were more than happy . We had to get almost all the supplies from the store , but it was fun . Back home we realised we didn’t have a baking tin , so we baked the cake in a baking dish . Anyways the cake turned out nice and moist , I frosted it with ganache , but had no time for it to sit and become thick , so as soon as both the cake and ganache came to room temperature , I just poured it over the cake . We had a can of peaches , so used those over the cake . We piped out some cream swirls and were done .

The cake was served immediately , since it was so fresh it got over in a jiffy and I felt I should have baked two cakes , so that they could have used the second one a little later . The chocolate and Peach combo tasted heavenly , a little cream on the side made it a perfect dessert and I could see many happy faces .

Frosting


Ideally you should place the cake on a wire rack over a rimmed platter and pour your ganache evenly over the top of your cake until desired coverage is reached, but I just placed it on my platter and poured the ganache .
I added some tinned peaches and some fresh cream to the cake and it made a perfect dessert .

Our hosts were very happy ,enjoyed the eggless cake and couldn’t stop thanking me . It sure is a joy when someone appreciates your efforts .

  1. That is such a decadent looking chocolate cake Vaishali. I’m sure your guests were thrilled when you baked this eggless cake. Love the peach topping.

  2. Haha I like that you didn’t even spare the time while on vacation! I wouldn’t even cook! If anybody asks me to do anything, I do it with a grumpy heart, somehow don’t like cooking or baking during that time, and unfortunately maybe because of the thought, I end up spoiling my dish. :/ I love how that cake looks and the peaches are like crown…

  3. Such a pretty gorgeous cake, i have never combined both chocolate and peach together in cake, now am very much tempted to give a try. Sounds like an interesting combination to bake some beauties without any fail. Love the way you have decorated the cake.

  4. We bakers can create awesome desserts even without proper tins.and pans. This chocolate cake with the peaches look so beautiful and I can understand how it was finished off within minutes.

  5. That cake must have been a treat for your relatives and if I am not wrong. they must have tried baking it later too. Peaches, ganache and whipped cream must have made it a decadent dessert.
