Chocolate Bundt Cake

For the past few years I have been in
purge mode.
Getting rid of all that extra *stuff*
that just clutters your house and your mind.
Well, maybe not my mind so much.
But house stuff for sure.

I have a system by which I put clothes
in a box in the basement.
If I don't open that box for two years
it goes to Goodwill.
No ifs, ands, or buts.

I should do that with kitchen 
accoutrements as well.
(man, had to Google that one!)
I decided to make this cake.
Thing is, this cake requires a very specific
piece of equipment. 
Namely, its namesake.
Bundt pan.

I had one. 
Once upon a time.
Facebook to the rescue and
Amy loaned me hers.

On to the cake.
It had every reason to succeed:
four eggs, 
pudding mix,
sour cream,
vegetable oil.
Oh, and chocolate.

It did not disappoint.

The original recipe just called 
for a dusting of powdered sugar
on top. 
I poured 
ganache over it before the sugar.
Why wouldn't you?

Oh, and I put a hit of rum
in the ganache.
why wouldn't you?
Heads up if you choose to make this cake,
note the cake mix package size,
all boxed cakes are not created equal.
