following Sloka(in bold ) is probably the most popular among all Ganapaty Slokas
"Vakratunda Mahaakaaya Surya Koti Samaprabha
Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva sarva Karyesu Sarvada".
Meaning:O Lord Ganesha, of curved trunk, large body and with the Brilliance of a Million Suns, please make all my works free from obstacles, always.
Question-Which scripture contains this Shloka?

I found the Vakratunda incarnation in Mudgal Brahmana but not the mantra. The closest I could come to this mantra is the following line from the Mahaganapati Shastranam Stotra from the Rudrayamala Tantra that contains the first sentence:
vakratuṇḍo mahākāyaḥ koṭisūryasamaprabhaḥ ।
ekadaṃṣṭraḥ kṛṣṇapiṅgo vikaṭo dhūmravarṇakaḥ ॥ 99॥
Here's the link to the text -
mahAgaNapatisahasranAmastotra. The entire hymn I couldn't find anywhere so this is the closest I could get.
