I Like Big Bundts - Day #3

Chocolate and Bundt are perfect together. Really. Like true love.

We're on Day #3 of I Like Big Bundts marathon of Bundts. I'm actually in beautiful Monterey, CA for the Internet Librarian conference!

Double-Chocolate Bundt Cake with Ganache Glaze - I Like Big Bundts 2011
Today's Bundt is from Food & Wine. It's Double chocolate (melted bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder) with a chocolate gananche.

Have you circled November 15th on your calendar? It's National Bundt Day and I hope you make a Bundt for someone you love, like, or just tolerate...everything will be better with a Bundt. Last year, about 90 bakers made Bundts around the world - I hope you can join me again! (Submission instruction will be posted next week)

This bundt doesn't require your Kitchen Aid mixer! You can make it with a few bowls and a whisk. Sometimes my Kitchen Aid needs a break.

I was running around the kitchen when I made this (most of my baking is done in the morning before work...about 4:30 am) and missed the butter in the ganache. I also think I let it sit for a little too long so it wasn't nicely pourable. But it still worked out!

Yay! Big bundts are back. I'm stoked. I don't know which one to try first. Hmm. Double chocolate - sounds perfect for my family. Thank you, in advance, for making my month.

Oh, my mouth is watering!

Please count me in if you are having a bundt bake along for Nov 19! (I just posted a pumpkin bundt yesterday.) What a yummy idea!

Chocolate Bundt cakes always remind me of my dad who bought the original bundt pan (which I now own) and made bundt after bundt. And I absolutely love the chocolate best! Fabulous recipe! And thanks for calling my attention to National Bundt Day! Yay!

The ganache looks so thick and tempting. Yum!

First of all, I love the title of this tab! You're hilarious! I'm enjoying your blog, and will continue to look around some more. I figure it's got to be good because librarians are the smartest people I know. It's another job I'd like to try in my next life. After I'm a pastry chef. :) I'm looking forward to trying this cake out!
