Double Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Ganache Glaze

Super easy, impressive and enjoyed by all - that is the perfect kind of dessert in my book.  Now if you truly dislike chocolate, walk away now.  This is full of chocolate through and through!  A local charity is hosting a "Chocolate Festival" this coming weekend with vendors, chocolatiers, and a couple of contest for amateur and professional bakers.  My daughter and I are entering selections in the amateur chocolate decadent dessert's category - Alex's Awesome Brownies and this Double Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Ganache Glaze.  My young sons are having a difficult time understanding that all the chocolate sitting in the kitchen is not for their consumption!

Double Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Ganache Glaze

1 box yellow cake mix
1 large box instant chocolate pudding
1 cup oil
4 eggs
8 oz. sour cream
6 oz. chocolate chips
Directions For Cake

Mix above ingredients with spoon in the order given. Bake at 325 degrees F for 60 minutes in a lightly oiled bundt pan.   May need to bake 5 minutes more until middle no longer moves when pan is jiggled.

Chocolate Ganache Glaze

This is so amazingly simple!  Melt chocolate chips (I used semi sweet) and add room temperature butter - YUM!

1 cup chocolate chips melted (I use the microwave method)
Add 3-4 tablespoons of room temperature softened butter

Pour over cake.
