Double chocolate bundt cake – a moist, sinfully delicious, intensely chocolatey cake with silky smooth, rich chocolate ganache.
I think that bundt cakes have to be my favourite kind of cake. They are easy to make (apart from the slightly nerve-wracking moment when it comes to turning them out of the tin!), feed a crowd, look good without the need for any fancy decorating, and most importantly, they taste amazing! (more…)
Everyone needs a go-to chocolate cake recipe, one that is guaranteed to work every time and is perfect for any celebration, this one is mine. Three layers of rich, moist, intensely chocolaty cake smothered with smooth chocolate ganache. Obviously what constitutes the ‘ultimate’ chocolate cake is fairly subjective and not everyone will agree; but I think that this one is pretty perfect.
It can be difficult baking cakes when there are just two of you to eat it…you either end up eating way more cake than is healthy, or it ends up in the freezer. I try to bake larger cakes and batches of cupcakes only when there is a party to take them to, or when we have people visiting. But sometimes there is no occasion to bake for and you just really want cake…. And that’s where these mini cakes are perfect. The recipe makes exactly two portions of cake, and you don’t even need to buy any special cake tins as they are baked in regular (clean, empty) food tins, the kind that tinned tomatoes, baked beans, soup etc come in. (I used 400g ones – the most common tin size)
