15.25ounceschocolate cake mix(Any chocolate cake mix should do. I always use Betty Crocker - it has pudding in the mix. I used Triple Chocolate Chunk variety for this.)
18.3ouncesfudge brownie mix
1cupvegetable oil,or canola oil
1cupchocolate chips(I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you could use milk chocolate or dark chocolate)
1cupheavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine chocolate cake mix, brownie mix, eggs, water, oil, and mayonnaise. Stir or mix with an electric mixer until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Lightly spray a 12-cup bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread batter evenly into a bundt pan.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, or with just a few crumbs.
Cool cake for 10 to 15 minutes; remove from bundt pan to cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.
When the cake is cooled, prepare the ganache.
Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan or in a microwave-safe container until steaming.
Pour cream over chocolate chips in a small bowl.
Cover with a plate for 2 to 3 minutes to contain the heat and allow the chocolate chips to soften.
Whisk until the mixture forms a smooth, glossy ganache.
Pour the ganache over the cake and serve.
Please note that it is very important that you are using a 12-cup bundt pan for this recipe. If you are using a smaller pan, it will take longer than the indicated time to cook.
Carefully run a rubber spatula around the sides and center of the bundt pan before removing the cake to help it come out cleanly. Place a cooling rack on top of the bundt pan and then invert it to remove the cake from the pan.
Don’t allow your cream for the ganache to boil! When it’s steaming, it’s ready.
Place a clean baking sheet under the wire cooling rack before pouring the ganache over so that the drips are caught for easy cleanup.
