Double chocolate bundt cake – wow your guests with this sinfully delicious, intensely chocolatey cake.
Bundt cakes have got to be the best kind of cake; they are easy to make, perfect for feeding a crowd, and they look beautiful without the need to do any fancy decorating! This double chocolate bundt cake is a chocolate lovers dream – an incredibly moist, chocolatey cake topped with a silky smooth dark chocolate ganache – heavenly!
The cake is so rich and moist because I use sour cream in the batter which helps to keep it lovely and soft. I find that the best chocolate flavour is achieved by using both cocoa powder and melted dark chocolate to give a perfectly rounded, intense chocolate hit; make sure that you use Dutch processed cocoa powder rather than natural for the best flavour.
The rich chocolate ganache glaze really completes the cake, making it the ultimate chocolate experience and giving it that wow factor that will totally impress your guests or family. Obviously this cake is absolutely delicious eaten just as it is, but my favourite way to serve it is slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream – ultimate comfort food!
