My love of chocolate, as you know, knows no bounds. This is a super easy and very fast recipe for a chocolate bundt cake, although I actually made a regular cake because I have a bundt cake pan but my bundt cake pan is…um…a castle. Yeah. So it seemed a bit…grand….for this. But don’t fear: while this is a small cake, comparatively, it’s big on flavor and happiness. Delicious delicious happiness.
Cinnamon Chocolate Cake
1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c. soft butter
2 large egg whites plus 1 large egg
1/2 c. lowfat milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp chocolate extract (or use vanilla if you can’t find chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Beat butter and sugar together; add eggs one at a time, then chocolate extract, cinnamon and milk. Add in the flour, baking soda, salt and unsweetened cocoa. Mix until well blended. Spray a bundt pan or 9″ round pan with cooking spray. Fold batter into the pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes depending on your oven.
Top with chocolate ganache. Eat. Smile. Be happy. Share.
