Who does not love chocolate cake? I am a fan of the bundt cake because it does not require any fancy cake decorating skills. As you can see mine are not so great.
1 c butter unsalted butter, melted
1/3 c cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 c water
2 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c powdered sugar
1/4 c cocoa powder
2 tablespoons buttermilk
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 350°F.
Butter and flour a 10- or 12-cup Bundt pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs, vanilla and water together.
Place the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Add half of the melted butter mixture and whisk until completely blended. Add 1/2 the butter, stir, add eggs mixture, stir add butter and stir till smooth. Whisk in the sour cream until smooth.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then invert onto a rack. Let cool completely before glazing.
Combine icing ingredients in a food processor until well combined. Drizzle over the cooled cake, allowing it to drip and dribble down the sides.
Serves 10 – 12.
