A while back, I received a request from a reader for a chocolate bundt cake recipe. Turns out, trying to find a great bundt cake recipe can be really difficult!
I found all sorts of bundt cake recipes – some called for tons of butter, others for ridiculous amounts of oil. Yet, despite having lots (and lots) of fat in them, the recipes came out dry. I tinkered with the recipes, but I just wasn't happy with how the cakes were coming out.
Then, as I was flipping through one of my Weight Watchers cookbooks, I noticed a Chocolate Buttermilk Bundt Cake recipe.
Now, I'm a sucker for chocolate buttermilk cakes. My absolute favorite chocolate cake has buttermilk in both the cake and in the frosting. So, I figured it was worth a try. Turns out, the cake is delicious! It's moist and chocolaty and just a great basic chocolate bundt cake! So, do yourself a favor. The next time you're in the mood for a soft slice of chocolate cake, give this bundt cake recipe a try!
