Chocolate Lovers Bundt Cake

"This recipe is from Tast of Home, I've made a lot of chocolate bundts from a cake mix but I wanted one that was from scratch. It almost like a chocolate pound cake."

    This is a great recipe!<br/>Made a couple of tiny changes to xmas it up a bit...<br/>changed the almond extract to peppermint extract, glazed with a mint chocolate glaze and sprinkled crushed candy canes on the glaze before it set to make this a xmas recipe- Yummy! and pretty

    This is a great cake--though next time I might use half of the almond extract--the flavor was a little much for me. (I can't speak to the glaze as I made the cake for Valentine's and used a "pink" chocolate ganache with white chocolate drizzle instead!) I will definitely make this again! (Second time with just a hint less almond was perfect! Thank you for this fab recipe!)

    The almond added a nice sophisticated note. Lots of chocolate, too, obviously. My family ate it right up. Mmmm...

    I actually had to throw half of this cake away because my husband, who is a Marine and has to maintain excellent shape, could not stop eating it. I even tried hiding it and he found it. I'm talking he ate half this cake in an afternoon. I used a plain vanilla/powdered sugar drizzled icing over it. Excellent flavor, excellent texture.
