Ingredients

Chocolate Bundt Cake

  • butter and flour for coating and dusting the pan
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup warm water or coffee
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Chocolate Ganache Glaze

  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate roughly chopped
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup

Instructions

Chocolate Bundt Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Use butter to grease a 10-12 cup bundt pan well. Dust with a little flour or cocoa powder and tap out the excess.
  • Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl until combined.
  • Add eggs, warm water, buttermilk, sour cream, oil, and vanilla. Use a hand mixer to beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes.
  • Pour batter into prepared bundt pan. Tap the pan on the countertop a few times to allow any air bubbles to escape.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes in a 350 degree oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes and then turn out onto the racks and allow to cool completely.

Chocolate Ganache Glaze

  • Place roughly chopped chocolate into a mixing bowl. Pour heavy cream into a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Once cream comes to a simmer, remove it from the heat immediately and pour over chocolate. Let stand 5 minutes, until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Stir until smooth. Once smooth, stir in corn syrup. Drizzle over the top of the cooled cake.
