This article contains a recipe for an incredible chocolate brownie cake!

To make it, you need the following ingredients:

A box of chocolate cake mix, either 15 ounces or 18.5 ounces.

A box of fudge brownie mix, 18.3 ounces.

Four room temperature eggs.

One and a quarter cup of water

One cup of vegetable oil.

One cup of heavy whipping cream.

One 12 ounce bag of chocolate morsels, semi-sweet.

The last two ingredients form a chocolate ganache. The rest go into the cake.

Here’s how you make the cake:

First, you have to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Put the cake mix, brownie mix, eggs, water and vegetable oil into a large bowl. Then whisk this until it’s a pretty smooth batter.

Then pour the batter into the bundt pan.


Put the pan in the oven and bake it for 50 to 55 minutes.

Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool. Remove the cake from the pan after about five minutes and let it cool on a rack.

And to make the ganache you do the following:

First, you pour the whipping cream into a bowl that can go in the microwave. Then heat the whipping cream for two minutes. The cream should be just about boiling.

Then pour the chocolate chips into the cream and let the chocolate melt into the cream for five minutes. Then whisk the chocolate and cream together until it’s all smooth.


Lastly, pour the ganache over the cake.

And all that’s left after this is to eat the cake.
