Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake
Chocolate Cake like you’ve never had before.
BIG Chocolate Flavor. This Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake is so moist it melts in your mouth.
An easy recipe that bakes up with a delicious crumb, as they say on the Great British Baking Show!
I just love potlucks. It’s such a wonderful way to get folks together, to celebrate an occasion, or just because. AND it’s a great way to find new recipes from those amazing cooks and bakers out there. My neighbour Sue brought this amazing Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake to the Canada Day Potluck at the trailer park this past July 1st. And it was a show stopper! Just look at that Chocolate Glaze. You can Pin It right now to save for later!
I love to whip up a cake from scratch. Everything goes into one bowl and gets whipped up in no time at all.
For this Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe, the addition of a cup of hot water along with the cup of buttermilk and a cup of oil, makes for a very moist batter. And that of course contributes to one very yummy cake!
You can make this in a 13 X 9 pan, or use a Bundt (10″ X 4″) pan. Sue made hers in a 13 X 9, so I thought I would try the Bundt. I always think Bundt Cakes are so pretty, don’t you? After all, you want to make a cake that not only tastes great, but looks great too! CHECK THIS OUT! Or better yet, Pin It to Your Board for later!
Make sure you line whatever pan you use and grease it really well (butter or shortening and I usually use aluminum foil to line the pan). Once the cake is baked and cools, Invert the pan on a platter or plate so that you can peel away the foil and then set it right side up.
I made this cake on the weekend, and invited some neighbours over for dessert and coffee. Everyone really liked the Bundt pan version and gave it a thumbs up! Especially my hubby Mark!
