  1. For cake:

    Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour a bundt pan well. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients for the cake. Mix well. Add water, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Stir in half of the cherry filling. Pour half of the batter into bundt pan. Spoon remaining cherry filling and 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips over the batter. Pour remaining batter over filling and chips. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes clean. Allow the cake to cool completely before removing from pan.

    For Ganache: Place chocolate chips in a heat-safe bowl. Heat over a slow simmering saucepan until chocolate melts. Remove from heat and pour in the cream. Mix well until smooth.

    Pour glaze over the top of cake.12 servings
