Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Day 30 of I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundt Cakes
Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt Cake

Happy National Bundt Day!! Today is the final day of I Like Big journey to make 30 Bundts in 30 Days. I'm relieved that I reached the finish line, but am a little sad about the project ending. But never fear...I cannot lie, I like Big Bundts and will continue making them!

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Today, I present my FAVORITE BUNDT of all-time: Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt Cake
I got the recipe from Vintage Victuals, and have made this countless times. It is so easy and yet absolutely delicious!

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Since it is National Bundt Day, I decided to spice things up for my big celebration Bundt cake! Based on Tendercrumb's and JustJenn's recommendation, I purchased these Valrhona Crunchy 55% Chocolate Pearls at Surfas. Oh my goodness! These are fantastic. They are perfect on any baked good!

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
I made a quick glaze of powder sugar and water...all so I could have a surface to place the Valrhona Crunchy Pearls.

This recipe is super duper easy! No fancy equipment needed and it gets thrown together in just a few minutes!

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Bring to a boil: 1 c water, ½ c vegetable oil, 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, and ¼ c + 1T (or 5 T) cocoa powder to a boil. I have successfully made this with Dutch-processed and Natural cocoa.

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
In a large bowl, whisk together 2 c flour, 2 c sugar, ½ t salt, and 1 ½ t cinnamon. Add the chocolate mixture to the flour and mix together.

Add ½ c buttermilk and 1 t baking soda. Mix 2 eggs and 1 t vanilla in a small bowl and combine with batter.

Place the batter in a greased 10 to 12 cup Bundt pan. (I spray my pans with Pam with Flour or Bakers Joy). Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes (the original recipe says 25 minutes but I find 30 minutes works for me).

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Cool in the pan. (I have depanned mine after about 20 minutes with no problems as well).

Usually, I just dust the top with powdered sugar. It is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner. :) And it keeps well...although I've never had any in the house for more than 2 days!

Thank you everyone for following along with me this past 30 days! I hope you don't forget about your cute Bundt pan and make Bundt cakes all year round. Me? I might not make 30 of them in a row, but you know I Like Big Bundts and will continue bundting! :) - mary the food librarian

WoW!! I just came across your site and can I say, oh my! This is a lot of bundt love! I am embarrassed to say that I don't even have a good bundt pan! I thought I did, much after searching for it, it has disappeared! What do you do with all these bundt cakes? Do you make them all? Either way, very impressive!

Angela KL said... [Reply to comment]

Hi Mary,

Congrats! You made it.. 30 bundts in 30 days!! I take my hat off to you for following through.

I was out of touch for awhile.. internet problems for 3+ weeks. But I remembered the little 'promise' I made and baked 2carrot bundt cakes yesterday.. one in a bundt and the other a bundt springform pan. One broke abit (the top) while the other had no form! And so, that means I need to get a good & proper bundt pan! Nordir Ware?? Not sure whether I can get it here and not sure whether they ship to Malaysia.

Congrats again Mary.. keep them bundts coming..

I'm so sad it's over! It's been lots of fun being able to come over and see a new bundt everyday. This looks so moist and yummy!

Katrina said... [Reply to comment]

Yay, yay, yay! You did it. I knew you would/could. What a great list of bundts to turn to when I want to go a-bundting! You know it's my birthday and I'm still trying to decide which bundt to make myself today. I'm thinking banana though. It just might be my favorite!
Really awesome, Mary!

Amazing! I am so impressed that you baked a cake every single day and they all look outstanding. I baked one in honor of the occasion:

sandhya said... [Reply to comment]

all of your bundts looks delicious... i enjoyed your 30days of bundts... even i baked a chocolate marble bundt y'day, posted it on my blog .....

Jessica said... [Reply to comment]

Congrats on 30 days of bundt-ing!

Pamela said... [Reply to comment]

Those chocolate pearls just make the cake look even prettier.

Joanne said... [Reply to comment]

Made this last night and it came out delicious, although I did have to bake it for almost 45 minutes. I used mini-chocolate chips in the batter. Oh, and I substituted low-fat yogurt for buttermilk (because that's what I had). I love the photos of making the cake, but I think you've got cinnamon twice when it should only be once (not with the eggs and vanilla). I almost doubled the cinnamon.

Thanks for all these wonderful bundt cakes. I love making bundts too!

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

Thank you so much for catching the correction!!! The original recipe has you mix the eggs, vanilla and cinnamon together but I found that the cinnamon got clumpy so I started to add it to the dry mixture. I corrected the post. Thank you again. And yes, the baking time varies. I wonder if that has to do with the type of pan you use (size, material) or placement in the oven. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it!! - mary the food librarian

Surfas sounds awesome... wish we had one! I saw chocolate pearls in the KA Flour catalog... maybe I'll try them!

Your 30 days of bundts was completely awesome! I loved seeing them all.

Divya Kudua said... [Reply to comment]

I tried this one and can see why it is your favorite bundts of all:).So soft,moist and melt in the mouth with a delicious chocolatey-cinnamoney flavor,this has become my favorite too:):).Of course,I made it without a Bundt pan..sigh!!

Azusa said... [Reply to comment]

I finally baked this today! It is super moist and had the perfect level of sweetness—I absolutely love it. Mine took 35 mins to bake and my kitchen smelled SO good. I became really anxious and waited 20 mins before trying to flip it out of the pan. Sadly, it didn't come out in one piece. But now I have an excuse to make it again. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Mary!

Sherry G said... [Reply to comment]

I just made this and it was AMAZING. To be extremely honest, I do not like chocolate. I tried this and found it to be incredible. Cinnamon and chocolate are made for each other.
