Easy Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake with Homemade Ganache

I am not the greatest baker in the world. I can bake, but I would much rather not spend all of that time in a hot sweaty kitchen. That said, there are times when I really don’t want to take a store bought cake to a party or event. This chocolate peppermint bundt cake is not only delicious, but it’s super easy to make and everyone will think you spent forever in the kitchen making it.

INGREDIENTS:



1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix (I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme)
3 Eggs (follow box)
1 cup Water (follow box)
1/3 Cup Oil (follow box)
1 tsp Peppermint Extract
8 oz Semi Sweet Morsels
4 oz Heavy Cream
10 Peppermint candies


DIRECTIONS:


Step 1: Follow Box directions to mix cake for bundt pan, but add peppermint extract to batter. Bake according to box directions.




Step 2: Place morsels in microwave safe bowl. Add heavy cream. Heat in 30 second increments and then stir until shiny and well blended. If mixture seems too thick add a bit more cream.




Step 3: Drizzle chocolate ganache over cake allowing it to drizzle down sides.


Step 4: Crush peppermint candies in food processor. Sprinkle over chocolate ganache as a garnish.

  1. We're making a lot of gluten free goodies this holiday for my daughter. Mainly vegan too. This looks so yummy though!! Ahh!

  2. Oh Wow, I don't think I'd want to share that! I just made pumpkin cookies with cream cheese chips the other night for Christmas Eve snacking – my kitchen smelled so good!

  3. Bundt cakes are my favorite. My 4yo gets annoyed that I'm always making "donut" cakes. She keeps asking me to do a regular layered cake.
