The batter is way too much for one bundt cake. Good thing I put a pan under it or my oven would be a disaster....It is still baking but the overflow is terrible. I will edit and add a flavor review once it cools. Edited to add! It was the best tasting cake I have ever had!!!
Thanks to previous reviewer, I half filled a loaf pan before pouring the rest of the batter into my bundt. This is exactly the kind of cake I was looking for: dense, moist, not overly sweet and melts in your mouth. I made it the night before a dinner party we were invited to, glazed it with a chocolate ganache and topped with mini chocolate chips. I recommend letting it sit in the fridge for a full day, it only improved the texture. Also, don't attempt to use baking spray on your cake pan. I did not get as good results turning out the loaf cake I used spray with but the bundt i greased and floured, left to sit 30 mins after baking and it slid out perfectly.
I just baked this cake. So easy to make. I only used 1 cup of sugar and I used canola oil instead of the butter. It took 50 minutes to bake. I was afraid of having a mess in my oven after reading the reviews about the batter being too much for a bundt pan but I didn't have any problems with mine. After removing my cake from the oven it sank a little, I don't like when this happens!!!! About the flavor is good even with just one cup of sugar. Next time I would make it with butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar.
Tried to find a chocolate bunt cake to make from a box but could never get it right. So found this recipe for scratch bunt and it turned out right so easy to make, and a good review. And they were right, tastes great, so moist , melts in your mouth.
