My pops had a birthday recently and being that he is a lover of chocolate {and Kahlua of course} I thought that this would be the perfect cake for him!
 
I love baking in a bundt pan.  Everything just looking more posh I think.  More professional and put together.  What’s your take on it?  Maybe it’s just the Kahlua talking so here we go…

While the cake is cooling lets make the ganache.  Place the chocolate chips into a medium bowl.  In a medium saucepan bring the cream just to a boil.  Watch it closely and when the cream comes to a boil immediately pour it over the chocolate chips.
