Bundt Chocolate Cake

The Bundt Chocolate Cake is exactly the same recipe as the Chocolate Cake Recipe. I was eager to try my Bundt pan and experimented with that recipe.

I am pleased with the results. The only difference is that it is not baked in 2 pans, but in one Bundt pan, just for some variation. However since the batter is a larger amount in one pan, do note that the cooking time is slightly longer. Bake the cake for 20-30 minutes at 400°

I have included the same recipe for your convenience & have called it Bundt Chocolate Cake. The pictures illustrate the steps involved.

Here is the recipe for Bundt Chocolate Cake


  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. ½ cup cocoa powder
  3. 2 tsps/10 ml. baking powder.
  4. 1 tsp. baking soda
  5. 1 can condensed milk(14 oz./396g.)
  6. warm water to fill empty condensed milk can
  7. 4 oz. soft butter
  8. 1 tsp. vanilla essence
  9. ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Sift numbers 1-4
  2. Blend together butter & condensed milk, essence. Add warm water & mix again
  3. Add milk mix to dry ingredients. Ensure there are no lumps. Use a whisk for better results
  4. Heat oven to 400°F./ 180°C.
  5. Use empty butter wrappers to wipe around a 10" Bundt pan. Pour cake mix evenly
  6. Bake for between 20-30min. Use a butter knife to test if cake is done. If it comes out clean, remove cake. If not leave a few more minutes & test again with a clean knife
  7. Allow cake to cool. Then use a spatula to gently ease cake from the edges. You may need to tap the bottom of the pan. If you intend to apply frosting ensure that it has cooled completely

Ingredients for Ganache

  • ½ pound fine-quality semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tblsp sugar
  • 1 tblsp light corn syrup
  • 1 oz.(1/½ tblsp.) unsalted butter
  • 6 tblsps apricot jam to sandwich cakes. Adjust amount to suit your taste

Method for Ganache

  • In a microwaveable bowl bring cream, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil in the microwave for 90 seconds, stopping every 30 sec. to mix until sugar is dissolved
  • Remove pan from heat, add chocolate chips, whisking until chocolate is melted. Cut butter into pieces & add to frosting, whisking until smooth
  • If ganache is very liquid, leave for an hour. It will thicken making it easy to spread. Use apricot jam to sandwich the cakes
  • Spread ganache/frosting over top & sides & between cake layers if there is there is extra. Keep cake covered in a cool place. If you like fresh cream, whisk cream & apply to top
