The creator of the bundt cake and I would probably be kindred spirits. What a brilliant concept for a fancy presentation with minimal effort.
I make all kinds of bundt cakes: orange, lemon poppy seed, coffee cake, glazed and marbled. This is a Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake, from a recipe that I got from America’s Test Kitchen. I think that any time you add sour cream or buttermilk to batters it makes it 100 times better. This chocolate cake really rocks, and I am not a chocolaholic by any stretch of the imagination. I crave chocolate cake only a few times a year, and this one is the one of the few recipes that I will make. The chocolate cake is delicious all by itself; it’s so chocolaty, deep, rich and tender. I make this bundt cake a lot of times before work, when I don’t have a lot of time to fuss, but want to have something sweet in my lunchbox. Let me tell you, a slice of this Chocolate Cake with a cup of coffee really hits the spot sometime around 2 in the morning. It’s also something for me to look forward to in the beginning of my shift, when it’s usually really busy.
You can elevate this cake a notch by serving it with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream and some fresh berries. That would be worthy of a special occasion. …
