Happy Tuesday!  I know that we are all busy getting ready for the big day.  Thanksgiving is only 2 days away and I am sure that the cooking has already started.  Just in case you were needing a dessert I have a great and super easy Bundt Cake for you.

Last year I made an Egg Nog Bundt Cake and it was so good that I had to reinvent it again for Thanksgiving this year.  When you have a hit you have to keep working at making better and better.

That’s just what I did!

The cake is made with pudding!  It is what makes it so dense and amazingly moist.  I used  Jello Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding Mix. Mixed with the chocolate it has the most wonderful bite of spice smoothed out with luscious chocolate.

Of course you know how much I love frosting, glaze, ganache, basically anything sweet that tops off a cake or cookie drives me wild.  This ganache was thick and rich and so delectable!

Rich Dutch Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and heavy cream.  Need I say more? Just take a look.

I know that you are drooling a little bit now aren’t you?  Well if you are you can taste a bite of this cake in just over an hour.  I bet you have all the ingredients in your pantry right now.  Maybe you don’t have Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding but I am sure you have chocolate. {an easy substitute.  Although I highly recommend using the pumpkin}

I wish I had some of this cake left! I am jonesing for some right about now!

    In the narrative about the ganache, you mentioned pumpkin pie spice along with the cocoa and heavy cream, but I don’t see it included in the list of ingredients for the ganache. Sounds wonderful, though, and I can’t wait to try it.
