chewy brownie bundt cake

Over the weekend, I needed to bake something quick and easy (but still tasty, of course) for a friend.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do exactly, but I was thinking something with chocolate, and something that is suitable for both adults and kids would be ideal.

After surfing around a little, I finally settled on this recipe. It was made with chocolate (checked); it was quick and easy to put together (checked); it was definitely adult and kids-friendly (checked)!

 

Being a brownie bundt cake, the exterior was crunchy while the inside was slightly fudgy and chewy, just like a brownie, and it was all chocolate!

What more could one possibly ask for?

  

Here are the step-by-step pictorial instructions on how to make this cake!

In a sauce pan, melt the butter and chocolate, stirring occasionally.

Once the mixture was even, let it cool a little before pouring it into a mixing bowl. Add sugar and vanilla extract then mix using the paddle attachment of the mixer.

The mixture would turn grainy.

Add the eggs, one at a time and beat.

The batter would become smooth.

When the eggs were well-combined, add the flour.

Use a whisk or a wooden spoon to stir the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture.

 

Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and pour the batter into a greased bundt pan.

The cake was baked for about 50 minutes. Then it was cooled in the pan for about 15 minutes. Before it was turned out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

 

To make the glaze, whisk together icing sugar, vanilla extract and cream. Add the milk gradually, checking the consistency of the glaze ever so often. I reckon 1 tablespoon was sufficient.

 

Pour the glaze on the cooled cake.

 

And top with sprinkles.

 

There you go.

An easy peasy brownie-bundt cake!

The kids loved this.

So did the adults.

So I guess it was win-win all round!
