Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cake topped with Chocolate Ganache

At home, we call this cake Daddy’s cake. It’s named for, non other than, my Daddy. There’s nothing on earth that he loves more than a rich, chocolaty, moist cake.  After many tries with many different recipes, this is the recipe he declared was “the one“.  Let me tell ya, this cake is wonderful!!! It’s different from the other “doctored cake mix” cakes and I think is much more delicious. I’ve tweaked and tweaked this recipe for the better part of ten years and finally have decided its just right!
