  • 3 slices of pound cake about 1/2" thick I used Entenmann's All Butter Loaf
  • Pastry Cream chilled

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  • Prepare Pastry Cream and chill until ready to use.

Chocolate Ganache:

  • Place the chocolate in a glass, heat proof bowl.
  • In a small sauce pan, bring the cream to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir often to prevent burning.
  • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Let sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Use a spoon or whisk to stir the cream and chocolate together until completely smooth. Refrigerate until chilled.

To assemble:

  • Place 1 slice of pound cake on a dessert plate and top with 1 to 2 tablespoons of pastry cream
  • Top the pastry cream with another slice of pound cake and 1 to 2 tablespoons of pastry cream
  • Finish it off with the third slice of pound cake and 1 to 2 tablespoons of chocolate ganache
  • Enjoy!


If the ganache gets too thick to spread, heat it in the microwave for about 15 seconds or until it is the consistency you like. I like it a little on the thick side for this recipe so I can spread it like frosting.
