Do you crave moist chocolate cake? Do you dream about it? I do! That’s why I’m bringing you this recipe for chocolate sour cream bundt cake!
Some recipes are so complex that they require detailed, step-by-step instructions, complete with a photo tutorial. In my experience, those types of recipes are almost always worth the extra time and/or effort required to complete them to perfection. Like my homemade puff pastry or my cream puffs and eclairs. But let’s be real… how many of us have time in our day (or DAYS) to master a recipe so gourmet and fancy that the title requires at least one word in Italian or French? Or if you DO have time to spare, do you really want to spend it hanging out waiting for your masterpiece to come to fruition?
I suppose that I’ll make that time once or twice a year, for fancy birthday dinners or special holidays. But there are days, like today, where all I wanted is a slice of decadent, moist chocolate cake, and I DON’T want to wait days for it! I often find myself browsing the recipes over at Leite’s Culinaria because they’re simply wonderful and tasty and never seem to disappoint. However, they aren’t notorious for QUICK recipes, and I definitely wanted a recipe for something quick and easy today because I was itching to use my new Pampered Chef silicone bundt pan. This isn’t my first bundt pan, but I have to be honest and say that after one use, I’m proclaiming it to be my favorite. It created a beautiful cake and the clean-up was a complete dream.
The cake simply glided from the pan, leaving nothing but a few sparse crumbs to clean up.
While over on the Leite’s website, I did a quick search for “Bundt” recipes and sure as Sunday, this one came floating across the screen like a lovely Cumulus cloud. Chocolate, sour cream for moistness, and wham bam… NO MIXER NEEDED! I was sold.
That dirty pan had to wait to be washed, though… I had some cake consumption duty awaiting me.
