Life has a way of changing plans and surprising us when we don't expect it. I am sorry for being absent for so long. First I was sick (with croup!!???!!!) and then I was dealing with our sick dog. I know this is a food blog but I want to dedicate this post to our dear dog Bruzer and my sweet brother-in-law G (who did what the rest of us couldn't do). Bruzer - thanks for being a great part of the family for nine years. I love you buddy.
When I was making this cake, every part of it reminded me of the flavors my brother-in-law appreciates. The cake was light and soaked in the most delicious coffee/liqueur syrup, the ganache was creamy and not overly sweet and in the end, I decided to top it with G's favorite french truffles (from Costco-they totally rock). So G, this one was for you. You are a special man - Thanks.
