- In an electric mixing bowl fitted with the whisk attachment, add the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt.

- Stir in the chocolate and pour batter into prepared pan.
- Place cake in the preheated oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Remove cake from pan and place on a cooling rack after 10 minutes.
- Cool completely.
- For the ganache, place chocolate in a stainless steel bowl, heat cream to boiling and pour cream mixture over chocolate.

- To assemble cake, make sure your ganache is at room temperature and just a bit fluid.
- The frosting needs to drizzle down the edges of the cake.
- Slice cake in 2 equal halves, horizontally. Place the bottom layer on a cake plate.
- Spread with some of the ganache and place top layer over bottom.
- Spread the ganache on the top of the cake, allowing the chocolate to drip down the edges of the cake.
- Sprinkle the pecans over the top of the cake. Drizzle Old-Fashioned Caramel Sauce generously over top of the pecans.
