Caramel Ganache tastes like toffee.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I made caramel ganache using sugar, lemon juice, white chocolate and cream.
It looks so delicious and just right to cover the cake. However, I tasted it and it has a slight toffee taste. I didn't think that I burnt the sugar mixture because I added the cream straight after it turned brownish (which is what the recipe said to do).

Is there a way I can fix this or should I start over? Will it change in flavour once fully cooled?

Toffee and caramel are very similar in taste, honestly I wouldn't change it.

 

Do you not like how it taste now?

I am 50/50 about it. I know its not the flavour I'm looking for. But I am not sure what to do to make it any different. Would white chocolate ganache on a caramel cake complement the cake just as well?

Sounds divine - right up my alley, would you mind sharing your recipe?

Just what I was thinking.

My take on toffee is that it's just hard caramel, but that may be because I like buttery caramels.

I think I may change my idea and put white chocolate ganache on my cake instead. I havent got enough time to try recipe's out to get the perfect flavour.
