Easy Chocolate Bundt

Like a sun, this cake brightens up one's day! It's an Easy Chocolate Bundt that uses only a pan/pot and a mixing bowl.. It was pretty easy to put together and a delight to have! The recipe takes about 1.5 hours in all and I'd rate it a difficulty level 2 of 5. 



Easy Chocolate Bundt
This recipe yields one 10 cup Bundt Cake

227g unsalted butter
40g cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
220g water

220g plain flour
250g castor sugar (already greatly reduced)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs (55 - 60g variety)
120g sour cream

Method

In a pan/pot, bring water, butter, salt and cocoa powder to a boil. Mix well. 

In a mixing bowl, mix sugar, flour and baking soda together. Whisk to mix well. 

On medium-low heat, cook butter mixture till mixture is homogeneous. 

Dry ingredients all whisked! 

Pour in half the butter mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix in.. It will be clumpy. Fear not. 

Mix in remaining butter batter and mix well.

The mixture will be thick.. Mix till there are no more clumps. 

Add an egg and mix well till mixture becomes homogeneous. 

Add in the other egg and mix well.

Add in sour cream and mix well. Batter should be homogeneous. 

Spray bundt tin with non-stick spray. 

Pour batter into tin. 

The is the spray I got.. love it to bits! It's even got flour in it XD 

I've got a simple time lapse video I filmed of the process (: 


Baking another one of the chocolate bundt cake I did yesterday cos it was thattttttt delicious!
Bake cake in pre-heated oven of 175 degree Celsius for 45 - 50 minutes till a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool IN THE TIN on a cooling rack for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, invert cake onto cooling rack to cool completely. 


Enjoy the light and fluffy cake that's so chocolatey good!

    1. No.

      there will be too much batter. This recipe yields about 10 cups.

      9-inch round cake pan (1½ inches deep) is about 6 cups.
      You may want to use it for reference.

    1. Have fun!

      Why would it be hard with mixing by a whisk?

    2. You know how recipes always say to mix with light gentle strokes so gluten will not form which will lead to a cake that will not be light & airy, or something along that line. Pls correct me if I'm wrong. Tks!

    3. Yes you're right.. but little mixing is needed to bring the batter to the right stage (:
