This recipe is for a decadent chocolate bundt cake that is perfect for chocolate lovers. The cake is rich, moist, and has an intense chocolate flavor that will satisfy all of your cravings.



For the Cake:

1½ cups hot water (360ml)

1¼ cups unsweetened cocoa powder (125g)

3½ cups all-purpose flour (420g)

2½ cups granulated sugar (500g)

2½ teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter (213g)

1 cup sour cream room temperature, (220g)

½ cup vegetable oil (120ml)

4 large eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For the Ganache Topping:

4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped bars (113g)

7 tablespoons heavy cream (105ml)

1 tablespoon butter softened


Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).

In a medium bowl, combine the hot water and unsweetened natural cocoa powder. Whisk until smooth and set aside to bloom for 10 minutes.

Grease a bundt pan with butter and dust with cocoa powder or flour.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, melt the butter and add it to the cocoa mixture. Stir in the vegetable oil, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla extract.

Pour the chocolate mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and smooth the top.

Bake for 55 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Slice and serve the cake as desired.
