Last week we were celebrating a birthday at the office, and she requested “Chocolate and simple”. When I think simple, despite my absolutely terrible luck with them, I immediately gravitate toward Bundt cakes – no decorating to worry about, bake the cake and you’re basically done!

In short, this cake is absolutely fabulous. I went looking for a moist cake because there are few desserts worse than a dry bundt cake without frosting, and boy did this deliver! It was honestly the moistest cake I’ve ever had (outside of those crazy lava cakes, of course) and you won’t miss the lack of frosting – it’s perfect as-is.

Super Moist Chocolate Bundt Cake
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar for garnish
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes - batter will be thin. Pour into a well greased and floured 10" Bundt pan.
  2. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until tests clean. Let set before removing from the pan. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack, then dust with powdered sugar.
