Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter (melted)
  • 2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 3/4 cup Hot Water
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Sour Cream (full-fat)
  • 2 large Eggs plus 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips (optional)

Chocolate Ganache Glaze:

  • 6 ounces * Chocolate Chips (semi-sweet, milk, or dark)
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a 12-cup bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray, making sure to coat all of the nooks and crannies. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, add melted butter, cocoa powder, and hot water and whisk together.

  3. Fold in sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine. Fold in sour cream, eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla.

  4. Pour into the greased bundt pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake.

  5. Let cake cool for 5-10 minutes. Then run a knife along the edges to loosen. Invert onto a cooling rack. Let cool before drizzling with chocolate glaze.

Chocolate Ganache Glaze:

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and heavy cream. Cook on 50% power for 45 seconds. Stir and repeat until chocolate is melted and silky smooth. Use a whisk for extra silky texture.

  2. Using a spoon or knife, drizzle the chocolate glaze onto the cooled bundt cake. Cut into slices and serve with vanilla bean ice cream.

Recipe Notes

  • 6 ounces equals 1 cup of chocolate chips. Chocolate is measured slightly different and 6 ounces = 1 cup.
