Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze
I made this Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze yesterday after Colt accidentally erased the pictures for a Roasted Shrimp Greek Orzo Pasta I had planned for you today.
OMGosh I was devastated because I'm trying to be more consistent for you guys and I thought I might finally be getting ahead again.
But it was the perfect excuse to make a cake for the family because who doesn't love cake and the kitchens always been my stress relief.
Vanilla Chocolate Marble Cake happens to be one of my favorites and I haven't made one in forever so I thought this was the perfect time to share my favorite Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake I perfected over the years.
It has a moist crumb, lots of chocolate flavor and easy to make glossy chocolate glaze.
Colt ate 3 pieces trying to get a photo perfect slice or at least that was the excuse he gave me.
I was barely able to get him to share a bite with me.
I pay him in food in exchange for food photo's and help in the kitchen.
It's a pretty good deal if you ask me!
Cream together 3/4 cup Cold Butter, 1 cup Granulated Sugar and 2/3 cup Brown Sugar until light and fluffy.
I find the cold butter adds better volume to the batter.
Add 3 whole Eggs, 1 at a time beating well between each addition.
Add 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract, 2 teaspoons Baking Powder, 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda and 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt. Mix until well combined and scrape sides of bowl.
Add 2 1/4 cups All-Purpose or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (make sure to fluff flour so it's not compacted) and 1 1/2 cups Buttermilk.
Mix until combined being careful not to over mix.
In a medium sized bowl combine 3/4 cup Cocoa Powder, 5 tablespoons Hot Coffee and 2 tablespoons Sugar until cocoa powder is dissolved and well combined.
Stir in 2 cups of the yellow buttermilk batter into cocoa powder mixture and stir until well combined.
Grease a 10 cup bundt pan well using butter. Place about 1/4 of the yellow buttermilk batter into the bottom of the pan. Then alternate dropping the yellow buttermilk and chocolate batter into the bottom of pan.
Repeat until all batter has been used.
No need to be perfect it will all work out in the end!
Using a knife make a continuous S shape running from the inside to the outside of the pan and then run the knife in 3 circles around the pan to form swirls of yellow buttermilk and chocolate.
Gently tap cake to dislodge any bubbles.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer inserted into the center of cake comes out clean.
Allow to cool 15 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack and removing from pan.
Allow to cool completely.
In a small saucepan heat 1/2 cup Heavy Cream until hot.
Add 2 teaspoons Corn Syrup and 3/4 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate or Dark Chocolate Chips.
Stir until chocolate is melted and allow to cool for 30 minutes to thicken.
Drizzle Chocolate Glaze evenly over cake.
Slice and enjoy!
And since it's cake I figured one more picture wouldn't hurt since to get this shot it required Colt eating 2 slices first and then this one!
It was well worth his patience and understanding as I tried to explain to him my vision and the numerous plating options we went through to get these shots!
