15m prep time
30m cook time
FOR THE CAKE:
1 box dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 (3.4 oz) box chocolate fudge instant pudding
4 large eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
FOR THE FILLING:
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
FOR THE GANACHE:
4 oz chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
FOR THE FROSTING:
1 can coconut pecan frosting
Preheat oven to 350Â°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding, eggs, yogurt, vegetable oil, milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until combined and pour into prepared pan.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and poke holes all over the cake with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk all over the cake and allow to soak into the holes. Let cool.
While cake is cooling, place chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. Heat cream in a saucepan until just beginning to bubble around the edges. Pour over chocolate and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, stir until chocolate melts. Allow ganache to thicken 5 to 10 minutes before spreading over the top of the cake.
Spread coconut frosting over the ganache, serve and enjoy!
