Chocolate Bundt Cake

This chocolate bundt cake is the best chocolate cake ever. Its perfectly moist, sweet, rich and chocolatey with the best chocolate ganache on top, just like a chocolate cake should be.


For the Chocolate Cake:

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Glaze:

  • 2 TBS sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz chopped semi sweet baking chocolate bar (chocolate chips will work too)
  • 2 TBS corn syrup


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt cake pan with non stick spray and sprinkle with cocoa powder.
  • Combine butter, cocoa powder, salt and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cook until everything is just melted and remove from heat. Set aside.
  • Combine flour, sugars and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in half of cocoa powder mixture at a time, stirring until completely blended.
  • Add in the eggs, and stir until just combined.
  • Mix in the sour cream and vanilla and stir until completely smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes then invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Heat the heavy cream and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Put chocolate and corn syrup in a medium sized bowl and pour heavy cream over the top.
  • Allow to set for 2 minutes, before whisking until smooth.
  • Allow to cool until a little bit thickened, about 15 minutes. Then drizzle over the top of the cake to cover.


Drizzle ganache with cake on a cooling rack, and a pan underneath. Then if desired you can scoop up fallen ganache and drizzle over again.
