  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3⁄4 cup mayonaise
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips melted
  • For the ganache icing:
  • 7 ounces semisweet/dark chocolate chopped
  • 3⁄4 cup whipping cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  • Grease and lightly flour a bundt cake pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add milk, mayonnaise, and vanilla.
  • Mix just until combined.
  • Add the melted chocolate chips and mix well until combined. The batter will be thick.
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Cool cake in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan. Cool thoroughly on a wire rack.
  • Place the chopped chocolate into a medium sized, heat proof bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the cream until it just begins to simmer and then pour it over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit a minute and then gently stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has fully melted and the ganache is smooth.
  • Then cover and set aside until it is set enough to drizzle over the cake, but isn't too runny.
