    Anyone have any recipes for creme fraiche cake? I've surfed and am having very little luck.

    TIA

    if you're having trouble locating a creme fraiche cake, try substituting it for sour cream in a sour cream cake or in place of heavy cream in biscuits.

    Several years ago Chocolatier magazine
    provided a chocolate creme fraiche cake recipe. The filling is creme fraiche flavored with chocolate (slightly thickened with gelatin), sandwiched between sponge cake layers, and the whole thing is covered in ganache. You can make it ahead/freeze it.
    If you're still looking, I'll dig out my back issues and give you the particulars?

    Found the recipe in the November 1993
    edition of Chocolatier Magazine. It's
    two typed pages long, and I don't have a personal scanner. By other means, I will attempt to scan it into a form I can cut and paste into this forum. However, if there's a need, and you've no objection, I can fax it to you??
