CHOCOLATE CREAM BUNDT CAKE — This rich, moist chocolate bundt cake has a swirl of sweetened cream cheese throughout, plus a decadent cream cheese icing on top. It’s like two delicious desserts in one.
I was so excited by how this cake turned out–like something from one of those fancy cake shops, if I do say so myself. And it’s tastes as good as it looks!
Speaking of entertaining, this cake would be perfect for just about any holiday, birthday or other special occasion. And yes, I’m already dreaming up other flavors. I think Red Velvet will be next!
The chocolate portion of this cake was already moist and delicious, and the sweetened cream cheese swirl put it over the top. Plus a cream cheese frosting and a chocolate drizzle! What’s not to love about that?
The biggest trick to making a bundt cake is successfully removing it from the pan when it’s done baking.
I’ve found the best way to do this is to use a generous coating of Baker’s Joy cooking spray. It’s a simple way to grease and flour your pan at the same time.
But you can always grease and flour your pan the traditional way to. I find bundt cakes are easiest to remove after a 10-15 minute cooling period. I just love that satisfying thud when the cake releases from the pan onto my plate or platter.
This cake is sure to become a tradition at many celebrations at our house. My family couldn’t stop raving about it.
If you’re looking for an easy dessert to impress your friends and family, you’ve got to make this Chocolate Cream Bundt Cake! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
