Ingredients

For the Cake
  • Butter and cocoa powder for "flouring" your bundt pan
  • 1/2 c. salted butter
  • 1 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper
For the Glaze
  • 1/4 c. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 5 oz. fine-quality bittersweet chocolate - finely chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare your bundt pan by buttering the inside and coating it with cocoa powder. Tap out any extra cocoa powder.
  • Set a saucepan over medium heat and add the 1/2 c. of salted butter. Once melted, whisk in the cup of cocoa powder. Once combined, whisk in the water and turn off the heat. Whisk in the buttermilk, sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. Slowly pour the liquid chocolate mixture into the bowl while continuing to whisk.
  • Once the batter is well-combined, pour it into the prepared bundt pan and bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes, then tip the cake out onto a plate. Let cool for another 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the glaze by melted the unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then adding in the cream, powdered sugar, and chocolate. Stir until smooth, then turn off the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Pour the glaze over the top of the bundt cake, then garnish with chocolate curls, sliced almonds, or finely chopped Macadamia nuts.
