Chocolate Cherry Fudge Bundt Cake With Chocolate Ganache

A family favorite, I usually make it with strawberries, 
but this time I made it with cherries.

For Cake

1 (18 ounce) box devil's food cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup water
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
whipped cream
maraschino cherry

For the chocolate ganache:

6 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream


Preheat oven to 350°; butter and flour a 
12-cup Bundt pan; set aside.

In a bowl, mix the cake mix briefly to 
break up any clumps; add in the remaining ingredients; 
beat at medium speed for about 3 minutes.

Pour batter into prepared pan; bake for 45-50 minutes, 
or until pick comes out clean.
Let cake cook in pan for 10 minutes, then invert to a rack 
or serving plate to finish cooling.

 Chocolate Ganache

Place chocolate in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
Heat the heavy cream on medium high 
heat until it reaches a boil, then pour the cream over 
the chocolate. Stir until mixture is completely smooth.
Allow the ganache to slightly solidify by letting it sit on 
the counter for about 20 minutes. 
Drizzle over cake and add sprinkles and cherries.

  1. YUM! I love those recipes that start with a boxed cake! Will be trying this! My son loves anything with maraschino cherries because we told him when he was little (he is 14 now) that every time he ate one it stayed in his stomach forever. He loves the fact that he has thousands in there!
