Add the flour mixture to the bowl alternating with the sour cream beginning and ending with flour. 

Pour the batter into your greased 12 cup bundt pan and bake the cake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. The cake is done once an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Steps to make the Chocolate ganache:

In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream under medium heat until it begins to bubble around the edges. Once it begins to bubble turn it off and pour the cream over the semi-sweets.

Do not stir. Allow it to sit for 3 minutes so give the chocolate time to soften.

After three minutes, stir until combined and silky chocolate forms. Pour the chocolate as desired over the cake allow it to cool then serve.

Tips for the Chocolate Cake

Semi sweets were used for the ganache for this cake, but you can use different types of chocolate as long as you use the same measurement of chocolate.

If using large pieces make sure to cut the chocolate into smaller pieces so that it doesn’t take as long to melt.

So tell me, are you going to eat this cake with a side of ice cream or as is?
