Happy Bundt Day!
Really, the best day of the entire month. Special thanks to Tara from Noshing with the Nolands for being such an awesome hostess.
This month we’re all about hot chocolate! That’s a lot of exclamation marks for early in the day but doesn’t hot chocolate deserve it?
My very favourite hot chocolate is a really rich, thick and slightly bitter type that I was introduced to in Italy.
It’s so thick that you almost spoon it up instead of drinking it.
Years ago a certain coffee chain with a green emblem had it and was able to indulge everyday. It’s likely a good thing that that drink was discontinued or I might not be able to fit into any of my clothes.
But a bit of cake is just fine C:
I decided to bring in all the elements that I love of my spicy, bitter chocolate drink and have a self-saucing cake. There’s no elegant way to eat this treat-but it’s so good that noone really notices how messy it ends up looking.
Start with a basic chocolate cake and bump up the flavour with cocoa nibs, crystalized ginger, cinnamon, chili powder and dark chocolate chips.
A bit of a mix and the addition of oil, eggs and milk and you’ve got a super rich batter.
That would be lovely anyway but even better with a sauce that runs right through and oozes all through the cake. So easy to make with brown sugar, cocoa, more chocolate and hot coffee.
Pour over the top, look slightly alarmed at the whole thing as you’ll never believe this is going to work and…
after a bit of a heart stopping turnover onto a serving plate-a fab cake to share.
- 1 T chopped crystalised ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ cup cocoa nibs
- ¼ cup dark, chocolate chips
- 1¾ cups sugar
- ½ tsp chili powder
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup oil (I used olive oil)
- 1½ cups milk
- 2½ cups hot coffee
- 1¼ cup brown sugar
- ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
- 5 T cocoa powder
- Cake: stir together all dry ingredients, fold in wet ingredients and mix to JUST combine.
- Turn into a greased bundt pan.
- Combine sauce ingredients and pour over the top (this will look like a mess). Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
- Turn upside down on a deep platter and watch the sauce ooze everywhere.
