Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 18.5 Ounce Box Chocolate or Devils Food Cake Mix- Without Pudding (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 8 Ounces Sour Cream
  • 2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 6 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

Ganache Icing:

  • 6 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate Chips at Room Temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter at Room Temperature
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream

Garnish

  • 6 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate Chips at Room Temperature

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a 12 cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, sugar, sour cream, and oil and mix on low speed for 1 minute.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each addition.
  • Increase mixer speed to medium and beat for 4 minutes.
  • Add vanilla and chocolate chips and mix on low speed until the chips are evenly distributed.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven 60-65 minutes or until a tester inserted into the middle of cake comes out clean.
  • Allow cake to cool in pan then invert onto a cake plate.
  • When cake is cooled, make ganache.
  • In a glass bowl, combine the chocolate and butter.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the cream to a boil. While cream is heating, microwave chocolate and butter for 30 seconds at 100% power. Immediately pour the cream over the chocolate and butter. Whisk until the mixture melts and becomes smooth.
  • Pour the ganache over the top of the cake. Allow the ganache to set for about 20 minutes, then cut cake and serve.
