Ingredients for Cake:
- 1 box of chocolate cake mix
- 1 box of fudge brownie mix
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups of water
- 1 cup of oil
Ingredients for Ganache:
- 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
- 1 12-ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Prepare the Pan: Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray to ensure your cake doesn’t stick.
- Cake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cake mix, fudge brownie mix, eggs, water, and oil. Mix until you have a smooth, well-combined batter.
- Baking: Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
- Cooling: Once the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before carefully removing it.
- Ganache: In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the heavy whipping cream until it’s just about to boil. Remove it from the microwave and pour it over the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Let this sit for 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt. Then whisk the mixture together until you have a velvety ganache.
- Drizzle Ganache: Pour the ganache over your cooled cake. You can also add extra ganache to the center of the cake for an extra chocolatey surprise.
