Today is the day where we get together with my side of the family. We did not plan anything fancy as it falls on a weekday but Mom has been telling me about all the delicious meals she prepared for us. As for me, I’ll show up with these eggrolls tonight.
Well, bundt cake is back. I’ve been keeping this secret for a long time and I’m glad I can finally let it out. This dark chocolate bundt cake is da bomb! I made this a while ago when I had huge cravings for chocolates (I take that back because there’s no day that I don’t crave for chocolates).
This bundt cake puts a big smile on my face. It stays so moist even for this the next day. Its rich chocolatey texture along with the pomegranate syrup adds extra crunchiness and sweetness. It also enhances the presentation. And big thanks to Tanya Gal of DessertStalking Blog for hosting this month. Be sure to check their site for some awesomelicious sweets recipes.
- Bundt Cake:
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 cups flour
- 1/3 cups cocoa powder
- 1 tbs baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup liquid coffee
- 1 cup milk
- Pomegranate Syrup:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1 tbs water
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Generously greased and flour a 12-cup bundt pan.
- In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. Scrape the chocolate into a medium bowl and let cool slightly.
- Whisk in the oil and sugar until smooth, then whisk in the egg.
- In another bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Add half of the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture, followed by 1/2 of the coffee and 1/2 of the milk. Whisk until smooth.
- Add the rest of the ingredients until well combined.
- Bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Let the cake cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then turn it out and let cool completely.
- Pour the pomegranate syrup the cooled cake.
- Pomegranate syrup: In a small saucepan, add the brown sugar and water over high heat and keep swirling. When it begins to caramelize, lower the heat and let the syrup thicken for 5 minutes before you add the pomegranate seeds.
