Devil's Food Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze


Devil's Food Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze


Devil's Food Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze is just incredible! A whole year of baking a different bundt every month. How did this happen? Yes, this Devil's Food Cake Bundt with a Caramel Glaze is to celebrate  the anniversary of #BundtaMonth.

Anuradha and I declared our love of baking beautiful Bundts exactly one year ago. We were in this bundt baking business for the long haul! The first bundt I shared with the group was actually a chocolate one...a Chocolate Zucchini Swirl Bundt cake, to be exact. Oh, I forgot how good that bundt was! There were 7 of us bakers proclaiming our love of bundts that first month.




Devil's Food Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze

This is a rich chocolate cake. A moist chocolate cake. It's a wonderful cake that would be fine even with a simple dusting of powdered sugar (the way I like it!). But to celebrate this month, I had to make it a little more fancy. I had so much fun with my July bundt using caramel and pastry cream and had a couple requests from it since it was baked (ahem...my neighbors!). So there was no hesitation in deciding what do bake for September. And you know that chocolate and caramel are a dangerous and delicious combination!

For the pastry cream, here is the recipe.

For the caramel glaze, here is the recipe.
