Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix, both 15 ounce and 18.5 ounce work
  • 1 box (18.3 ounces) fudge brownie mix,
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

Ganache

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) semi sweet chocolate morsels

Instructions

Cake

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare a bundt pan with bakers spray or use the butter/flour method.

  2. Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl and whisk for 2 minutes or until lumps are mostly gone.
  3. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for 50-55 minutes.
  4. When done baking, remove cake and allow to cool in pan for up to five minutes. Carefully turn cake out onto a cooling rack and cool for 30 minutes more.

Ganache

  1. Place heavy whipping cream in a large microwave safe bowl and heat for about 2 minutes. You want the cream to be just boiling.
  2. Carefully pour chocolate morsels into cream... it may rise up and bubble and this is ok.
  3. Let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk the chocolate and cream until shiny and smooth, about 1 minute.
  4. Pour over cooled cake and serve.
