One-bowl Mocha Bundt Cake #internationalbundtday

One-bowl Mocha Bundt Cake
There was a time when I used to hoard cake pans.In whatever shapes and sizes it fancied me during that time.Later on I realized,whenever I was up to baking something,I turned to the same set of pans.The 'bundt pan' is definitely one of them.I've always wanted a bundt pan and during the times it wasn't available here,I bookmarked a bunch of recipes for those times when I owned a bundt for myself.

I got my bundt pans through a giveaway and haven't looked back since.Though I rarely use the bigger pan(12 cup bundt),the smaller one(6 cup)gets used at least once in a fortnight.I love the pan for the beautiful shape it lends to the cake without much effort from us,excluding the greasing and flouring of the pan.

Few times,I've had disasters where the cake stuck to the pan or refused to come out despite greasing.Over a period of time,I've learnt a few tips and tricks which ensure the cake comes out of the pan in one single piece each and every single time. 
  • Grease and flour your pan well.Use a pastry brush or a tissue and cover every nook and cranny of your pan with melted butter or shortening.Add flour to the pan and tap well so that every part is coated with flour.Discard the excess flour and make sure no chunks of flour remain.
  • After baking,place the pan on a wire rack and let the cake cool in the tin for 30-40 minutes.Use a knife to loosen the edges and center of the pan.
  • Invert the cake pan onto a wire rack and let the cake cool further before slicing.
One-bowl Mocha Bundt Cake November 15th is National(International)Bundt Day and I've posted my bundts for the event in the last few years.Mary,the Food Librarian is the one who's been hosting the event.If ever you feel stuck for bundt recipes,hers is the blog to check out,with over 100+ bundt cake recipes.

I didn't want to miss posting a bundt for the event,so decided on trying this simple one-bowl mocha cake.I'm always on the look out for simple(and small!)cakes for pairing with coffee and tea and this one is perfect for that.Though it tastes great on its own,I drizzled the top with some ganache and chocolate chips.

  6. Bookmarked this recipe. Will make an eggless version with an egg replacer. Dont have brown sugar. I think even organic unrefined cane sugar should work. Any suggestions?
