Chocolate coffee bundt cake

Chocolate Coffee Bundt Cake - For The Love Of ExpressionThis past weekend was Jons birthday, which in our house means chocolate cake! I didn’t want to make a whole cake since it would just be us eating it (way too dangerous), so I decided to make these adorable little bundt cakes. Whatever we didn’t eat I could freeze for another time.

For this recipe, I used butter and confectioners’ sugar in the pan instead of the normal butter and flour. I forget where I learned this trick, but it works nicely for cakes and other sweet desserts. Also, instead of using water in the cake, I decided to use coffee. Chocolate and coffee are a great combo and one of Jon’s favorites.These little cakes turned out perfect and were hubby approved.

 
Chocolate Coffee Bundt Cake Modified from All Recipes Extreme Chocolate Cake
 

1 cup raw sugar
3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup strong coffee, boiling hot

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, butter and sugar bundt pans.

In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the egg, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer. Stir in the hot coffee by hand. Pour evenly into the prepared bundt pans.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely.

Chocolate Frosting

1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder                                                                                        1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-2/3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup almond milk
Melt butter, stir in the cocoa and vanilla, then stir in the confectioners’ sugar alternately with the milk. I made mine a little thinner because I dipped the bundt cakes in it then set them on a cooling rack to dry.

This recipe makes five, three inch bundt cakes.

The only thing I’ll do different next time is add coffee to the icing as well. Have you made any desserts lately? Share the recipe in the comments, I’m always looking to add to my arsenal.
