Chocolate cake batterprepare according to box directions or use the Chocolate Cherry Cake batter recipe below
1can of cherry pie filling
Easy Chocolate Ganache
1cupbitter or semi- sweet chocolatechopped or chips
**optional whipped cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease & flour a mini-bundt pan.
Prepare cake batter, and fill the pan cavities ¾ full.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, until pick pulls clean. Then cool a few minutes & remove to rack to finish cooling.
Fill each mini-bundt cake with cherry pie filling. Focus on getting some cherries in and gently press down, a little will absorb into cake giving you a bit more room to fit more. Fill right up to the top.
Prepare ganache in microwave: Place the ingredients in microwave safe bowl and zap for 20 seconds, stir. Repeat until smooth but not completely soupy.
Spoon over each cake, and gently swirl spoon to ensure the whole top is covered.
Allow to cool a minute or two before serving, or do ahead of time.
Top with whipped cream & leftover cherry filling if you like.
*a box of cake mix is fine if you prefer. The recipe makes just the right amount for my Nordic ware Mini-Bundt pan (6 mini-bundts)
