  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing them from the pans and placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Ganache:

To make the chocolate ganache, you’ll need:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just begins to boil.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips until they are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Let the ganache cool for about 10 minutes before pouring it over the cooled cake.

And that’s it! You now have a delicious chocolate cake with chocolate ganache that will satisfy any chocolate craving. Enjoy!
