Chocolate Bundt Cake

Nothing makes me happier than a dessert recipe that’s simple, requires few dishes and gadgets to make, and involves chocolate. This one-bowl, moist chocolate cake has become my go-to recipe when company’s coming or if I just need chocolate cake in a hurry. I like to drizzle a rich chocolate glaze over this cake once it has cooled, but it tastes just as delicious without it.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee, warm
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp corn syrup
  • 3-4 tsp milk
  • sprinkles, for decorating (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 10-inch Bundt or ring cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, soda and salt.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add all the wet ingredients. Mix until batter is smooth and fully-combined.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, until toothpick inserted in centre of cake comes out clean. Let cake cool completely before glazing.
  5. For the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa, corn syrup and milk. Mix until the glaze is smooth. If the glaze is too thin, add a little extra sugar. If it is too thick, add a bit more milk. Drizzle over fully-cooled cake. Allow glaze to set for about an hour before serving.
