Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake – You Asked For It!

As promised, here’s the recipe for the chocolate cake that
was featured in the orange Crème Anglaise video recipe we did a few weeks ago.
In case you missed it, here’s what happened: We uploaded a perfectly fine
looking custard sauce video, which no one cared about once they saw this
gorgeous looking cake.


Not only did the vast majority of the audience lose all
interest in the Crème Anglaise, but they also started requesting the cake be
shared in video recipe form. And by “request,” I mean they demanded under
threat of grievous bodily harm. Well, it worked.

By the way, you can use any pan for this cake, even a
cupcake tin, as long as you’re prepared to adjust your baking time. I’d love to
give you specific times, but that will depend on the exact size/type of pan.
Best to test early and often with the old bamboo skewer, until it comes out
clean.


I joked in the intro that if you messed this up, you
should never try to bake anything else again. The funny this is, that’s not a
joke. You’ll have to try really hard for this not to come out awesome. In fact,
the ganache is probably the trickiest part, and all that entails is pouring
boiling cream over chopped chocolate and stirring. I hope you give this
ridiculously easy and delicious chocolate cake a try soon. Enjoy!
