Chocolate Cake with Ganache and Praline Topping.

Since Ice Cream Week was a little heavy on the sugar and the calories, I thought that I’d lighten things up with a Chocolate Cake.  With Ganache and Praline Topping.  Because, you know, sugar and butter and cream and chocolate are so outside the realm of what I do.

Change is good.  Mixing things up.  Since I rarely try anything with a little fat and sugar, a moist Chocolate Cake topped with rich and buttery ganache in addition to sweet and nutty Pecan Praline seemed like the perfect thing to stud an otherwise healthy summer.

Oh, wait.  What’s that you say?  Ice Cream isn’t healthy?  It’s not a vegetable?  Oh.

Well, hey, at least I restrained myself from throwing the cake in an ice cream maker.

Not that it’s necessarily a bad idea….
