Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze

Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Glossy 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.

Gently tap cake to dislodge any bubbles.
Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze is perfect for company.
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. 
Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake cover with glossy chocolate glaze.
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! 
Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Cake is perfect for company.
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!

  7. Is it necessary to use that much sugar? I am trying to reduce sugar intake and this seems excessive.

    1. Well the Corn Syrup in the glaze isn't a necessity if you don't mind darker chocolate it sweetens it but also adds shine or you could substitute with agave just a little like it's much sweeter then sugar but doesn't cause a spike in blood sugar. You could probably also leave out the 2 additional tablespoons sugar mixed into the chocolate if you don't mind the chocolate to be a bit more on the bitter side or you could try reducing the sugar in the cake itself by 2 tablespoons- 1/4 cup. I haven't done it so I can't guarantee how it will taste but those are the things I would consider if I was trying to reduce the sugar. I hope that helps. -Serena

  13. Chocolate cake batter proportions are way off. So bitter and so stiff,could not mix with spoon until vanilla batter was added. I added at least double the sugar and hot water to gain desired consistency and taste. Cake in oven now and I am optimistic!

    To Severine Poul...I whisked my flour to lighten it up as it does say to fluff.
