For the Cake:

1 box chocolate cake mix (and ingredients called for on the box)
For the Filling:

5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
For the Ganache:

1/3 cup heavy cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon corn syrup


For the Cake:

Prepare and bake the chocolate cake according to the instructions on the box, using two 9-inch round cake pans.
Once baked, remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then, remove them from the pans and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
For the Filling:

In a small saucepan, combine the flour and milk and cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens (stir continuously to prevent lumps).
Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla, and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Gradually add the cooled milk mixture to the butter mixture, beating on high speed until it is very fluffy.

For the Ganache:

Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until it just starts to simmer.
Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips, not stirring until the chips begin to melt.
Add the corn syrup and stir until smooth.

To Assemble:

Place one cake layer on a serving plate and spread the filling on top.
Add the second layer and pour the ganache over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides.
Let the ganache set before serving.
