Chocolate Ganache

  • 4 oz (120g) semisweet chocolate

  • Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Butter and dust with flour a 9 or 10 inch (23-25cm) bundt pan.

Prepare the chocolate cake batter.

Make the cream cheese filling.

  • In a large bowl mix cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar, egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • Pour about one third up to half of the chocolate batter into the prepared pan. Use the back of a spoon to create a ditch. Carefully place the cream cheese filling into the center. Gently place the rest of the chocolate batter over the cream cheese filling and on the edges.
  • Bake for about 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool slightly into the pan onto a rack for about 10-15 minutes. Invert and cool completely.

Prepare the chocolate ganache.

  • Place chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl and place over a pan with simmering water. Melt over low heat.
  • Pour ganache over the chocolate bundt cake. Let it set slightly before serving.
