Chocolate Mocha Bundt Cake
A devilishly delicious and moist chocolate mocha bundt cake. With a rich, and boozy, chocolate ganache..
We are finally into the Christmas season, and I could not be happier. The music, the overindulgence in tasty food, time with family and friends. Hopefully, hopefully, a bit of snow as well.
A couple of weeks ago we were visiting some friends in the next town over for dinner and drinks, and it was delicious. Just a massive amount of raclette cooked meat and cheese. So delicious. So not healthy for us. But, it was a Saturday night and it was a great way to unwind. All very wintery!
I was asked to bring a dessert, which provided me with an opportunity to try out a new bundt pan. Yes, my life has come to that. In any case I decided if I was going to have a rich meal, I wasn’t going to have a healthy dessert. Hence the titled dessert, of a chocolate mocha bundt cake with a boozy chocolate ganache.
It went down a treat, paired with a bit of vanilla ice cream. Now it is a lovely chocolate cake on its own, but what really brings it together is the ganache. Chocolate and cream, mix with a shot of liqueur poured over top. Yeah, I did have any leftovers to bring home!
Well, with chocolate cake I’d normally suggest milk. However, with chocolate mocha bundt cake I might suggest a liqueur on the side.
I know I started this by talking about Christmas, but the music playing at the time was a bit of Billy Ocean and Love Really Hurts without you. Yup, that it now going to be stuck in your head!
