TWD Tart Noire















This wasn't my most successful TWD ever - my crust was still in the oven when through miscommunication, the oven was turned to broil :)















It doesn't even look like a crust - it looks like a flat, burned, shrunken pancake. I can't believe how much it shrunk!

Anyway, I made 1/4 recipe of the ganache, which was incredibly rich, very smooth (even with the bubble), very dark. I managed to eat the whole cup while watching old tv on netflix. Thanks to Dharmagirl of bliss: towards a delicious life for this week's pick!

Awwwww-I think we've all had mishaps like that. At least the ganache was salvageable!

Oh man, that reminds me of my meringue that I left in the oven under the broiler for 7 seconds. I counted. And it was burnt to a crisp!! But at least the ganache was good!!

Ooooh, bummer. My FIL once turned on the oven when I had bread dough rising in it. Ooops. Glad you got the ganache!
