If you’ve never baked a cake in a bundt pan before, here’s a couple of tips to help you:

  1. Make sure you generously spray AND flour the pan before pouring the cake mixture in.
  2. If the cake does become stuck in the pan, try steaming the cake out! Lay a clean tea towel in the sink, boil the kettle and pour the steaming hot water in the sink, over the towel. Now, place the bundt pan in the sink, wrap the towel around the pan sides, then cover the sink with another bigger towel to keep the steam in. Leave for 5 – 10 minutes. Now, dry the bundt pan, and turn the cake out onto your desired plate!

I learnt to do these tricks after my first failed attempt of baking in a bundt pan. When I tried turning it out after leaving it to cool completely, the cake broke right in half! Now, if I know I’ve properly greased the pan, I can turn the cake out after 20 minutes of cooling.

I hope you’ll love this cake just as much as my family and I do!

Enjoy!

Author Marsha

Ingredients

  • 340 g self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 40 g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 115 g unsalted butter softened
  • 450 g caster sugar
  • 240 ml vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 240 ml buttermilk

For the Frosting

  • 180 g cream cheese softened
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons milk or more for drizzling consistency
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A handle of chocolate chips optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/176C. Spray and flour a 10" bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add the sugar and beat on high speed until well combined. Add the oil, eggs, and vanilla and beat until combined.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients in three additions alternating with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with moist crumbs. Let the cake cool for 20 minutes in the pan on a wire rack before removing. Leave to cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, icing sugar, cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth, and at the desired thickness. If the frosting is too thick, add more milk to loosen to drizzle consistency.
  2. Pour, or spoon over the cake, then sprinkle with chocolate chips.

  1. I seriously cannot express just how much I LOVE this cake! So gorgeous, so delicious!! Plus, I’m going to keep your tip about steaming the cake out of the pan…I’ve had some bundt disasters, but hopefully never again! Pinned!

  2. This looks heavenly, Marsha! I LOVE chocolate on chocolate and the bundt pan makes this look so gorgeous with the frosting drizzled down the sidesโ€”YUM! I used to make bundt cakes often, but after a few fiascos with them not coming out of the pan, I got too scared to risk it anymore. I will have to try your tip on greasing the pan and the steam trick..SO genius! Hopefully I can make it as pretty as yours!

  3. Perfect timing Marsha! I’ve searching left and right for a great chocolate bundt cake recipe, but non of them really hit the spot. I’ve got a good feeling about this one. I love that it uses a combination of two fats; oil for moisture and butter for flavor. I’m sure the tanginess from buttermilk is just perfect with the chocolate. I’ll be trying this very soon; thanks for sharing. Pinned!

  4. Ooh I have just bought 6 new Bundt tins and this cake definitely needs to be made in one of them. It looks so moist and lush. Thanks for the Bundt baking tips, I haven’t had one stick yet but you never know! Love your blog. Sammie ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Wow..These pictures tempting me to make this bundt cake. But sadly I don’t have buttermilk. Can i replace it with Greek yogurt? Please share your opinion.
