Dark Chocolate Ganache Cake
I am starting your week off with a delicious, moist and borderline decadent Dark Chocolate Ganache covered cake recipe. It is sometimes hard to believe that a pod from a tree can result in such a delicious recipe. The cacao tree gifted us with its cacao pods and when processed they turn into cocoa powder or cocoa butter. I am a happy Taste of Home blogger and this ganache yumminess is sure to be a big hit!
What You Need
For The Cake
Dark Chocolate boxed cake mix ( Like duncan hines classic dark chocolate fudge cake mix)
1 Cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
16 ounces bittersweet chocolate ( chopped)
2 Cups heavy whipping cream
5 tsp. Light corn syrup
Before You Start-
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare cake pan according to directions.
Lets make it! Prepare cake according to directions set aside to cool for 10 minutes then remove from cake pan and place on serving plate.
Add chocolate pieces to a large mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and corn syrup just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; stir with a spoon or whisk until smooth.
Let stand at room temperature to cool and thicken slightly, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Mixture will be very soft, but will thicken when spread onto cake.)
Spread ( pour) ganache over the top and sides of the cake.
