Beautiful Bundt


This is one of the easiest and best bundt cakes I have ever made.

It comes from the Food Librarian's blog and I followed her recipe exactly.
I will make it all the time (well, not all the time, that might be a health hazard).

The combination of cinnamon and chocolate is beautiful. It's so fragrant.
Only a dusting of powdered sugar is needed for the top.

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt Cake: (adapted from The Food Librarian)

1 cup water
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup butter
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs, beaten
1½ teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small saucepan, bring the water, oil, butter, and cocoa powder to a boil. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the boiling mixture to the flour mixture and stir well.

Add in the buttermilk and baking soda.
Combine the eggs, cinnamon and vanilla in a small bowl and add to the batter. Stir until just combined.

Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake for
30-35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing.

Dust with confectioners sugar and serve!

This is such a beautiful cake! I love desserts that look nice on their own and only require minimal decoration!
Love cinnamon and chocolate. Every time I make a bundt I think of the movie my Big Fat Greek's a bundt(LOL)! Did you see that?

Cinnamon & chocolate just smell like something special together don't they?

I'm laughing because I posted this one in April called "When Bundt Cakes Go Bad". Mine stuck and broke apart! But, it was still delicious. Yes, it's easy and very tasty. Yours is far prettier than mine.

Oh, yum. I love anything baked in a bundt pan- though I keep convincing myself that I don't "need" one, as it's only my boyfriend and I here, and two people really can't eat that much cake, can they? Hopefully not, anyway.

That's a beautiful cake and it is so easy. I love bundt cakes :)

Fantastic and amazing! I'm totally going to steal that recipe. I JUST replaced my old and sad and super sticky bundt pan with a new shiny and non-stick one. Sometimes I want cake but anything overly fussy or frosting-y. Looks great!

I love cinnamon and chocolate! Good times. I haven't made a bundt in ages, maybe that will be my next project.

Stacey, I haven't made a bundt cake in years. Your is gorgeous. Makes we want to buy a pan - I have no idea what happened to my old one. I really like the combination of cinnamon and chocolate -very much in the holiday spirit.
