Too Much Chocolate Cake Recipe
(About 12 servings)
Ingredients for the Cake:
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 cup oil
1/2 cup warm water
1 box (15.25 ounce) devil’s food cake mix
1 box (5.9 ounce) instant chocolate pudding mix
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Ingredients for the Ganache:
1 cup heavy cream
1 and 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/8 teaspoon salt
Directions for the Cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 10 inch bundt pan and set it aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs.
Mix in the sour cream, oil, and water.
Mix in the cake mix and pudding mix.
Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Note that the cake batter will be very thick.
Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan.
Bake it for about 55 minutes or until a tester inserted comes out clean.
Let the cake cool completely before inverting it onto a plate.
Directions for Ganache:
In a saucepan, over Medium heat, bring the heavy cream to a boil.
In a medium bowl, add the chocolate chips and salt. (Make sure the bowl is big enough to put all the cream in with room to stir.)
Pour the boiled heavy cream over the chocolate chips and salt and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Once the 10 minutes have passed, stir the mixture with a whisk until it’s smooth and shiny.
Let the ganache sit for about 15 minutes, until it thickens a bit. The goal is still be able to pour it over the cake, but not have it too thick that it’s frosting. Give it a stir again.
Pour the ganache over the top of the chocolate bundt cake.
