Step 5:

Place inside the oven and bake at 350F for about 40 minutes.

Step 6:

Make the chocolate ganache. In a heatproof cup, add the semi-sweet chocolate and warm heavy cream. Mix until well combined. Cover until the cake is done baking.

Step 7:

To check if the cake is done, insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean, your cake is ready. Remove the cake from the pan. Slice the top part off to make it flat.

Step 8:

Poke holes in the warm cake. Pour the chocolate ganache onto the cake little at a time, making sure to fill the holes. Spread all over the cake even the sides. Keep in the fridge for half an hour. Garnish with some chocolate shredding.
