If you follow my recipe exactly, you will be able to create this amazing cake yourself. You will become the Chocolate Cake Whisperer. Well maybe not, but it sounds cool right? 🙂
You will need: a Bundt Pan, white flour, white sugar, eggs, oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, corn starch, vanilla, baking soda & butter.
Make sure you line whatever pan you use and grease it really well (butter or shortening and I usually use aluminum foil to line the pan).
Once the cake is baked and cools, invert the pan on a platter or plate so that you can peel away the foil and then set it right side up.
Make the hot water frosting right away so that lovely warm chocolate can cover your deliciously moist chocolate buttermilk bundt cake.

The combination of rhubarb with either fresh or frozen strawberries results in an old fashioned fruit pie. The flavour is a sweet and tangy ambrosia, with a strawberry rhubarb pie filling that tastes just like homemade strawberry rhubarb jam. Yum!
A traditional French-Canadian dish, Tourtière, or Quebec Pork Pie is usually served around the festive season. It's such a hearty meal and easy to make in batches, so batch bake several and put them in the freezer. You can pull one out and pop it in the oven one night when you are pressed for time. Just add a salad! We have an Instant Pot Tourtiere and a Stove Top Tourtiere - take your pick!

I just made this cake and can't wait to try it after dinner! I added a half a bag of milk chocolate chips to the batter and I only made half a recipe of the frosting and drizzled it over the cake then sprinkled powdered sugar on it, OMG it looks amazing! I absolutely love chocolate and this recipe was so easy, so of course I had to try it. Can't wait for the tasting! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

This is finally in my oven baking! I wanted an easy to make no fuss chocolate buttermilk Bundt Cake and this hit every button. Hoping it tastes as rich as the batter looked! I greased my new bundt pan with melted shortening, I used a pastry brush to get into all the cracks and dusted with cocoa powder! Fingers crossed. I have a chocolate Irish cream glaze that I could drizzle over this, mmmm! Thanks for the recipe!
