Tunnel of Fudge Cake

October 30, 2018

Similar to a brownie in texture, this cake is seriously moreish. The aim is too slightly 'under-bake' it so that the cake has a gooey chocolate ring running through the centre of it. Bundt tins always seem to produce stunning cakes and this was no different. You can find a whole bunch of different ones that create so many different designs of cake but for this photo I really wanted one with a shape that would work well with the drizzling action shot I was hoping for and the tin I eventually used didn't disappoint! This cake is a real showstopper - anyone else got a Christmas cake switch up vibe...?

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

For the Cake

- 400g Butter (softened)

- 390g Caster sugar

- 6 Large eggs

- 265g Icing sugar (sifted)

- 300g Plain flour

- 100g Cocoa powder

- 1tsp Vanilla bean paste

 

For the Chocolate Glaze

- 160g Icing sugar (sifted)

- 30g Cocoa powder (sifted)

- 4tbsp Warm milk

 

You will also need: A 10" bundt tin

 

METHOD

 

- Preheat your oven to 150 Fan/170C and grease your bundt tin carefully to ensure the cake comes out nice and easily when it has baked.

 

- In a freestanding electric mixer (with a paddle attachment) cream the butter and sugar together before adding the eggs, one at a time.

 

- With the mixer on a low speed, add the icing sugar, flour, cocoa powder and vanilla and mix until the batter is nice and smooth.

 

- Pour the batter into the bundt tin and bake for 1hr. Don't worry if the cake looks a little underbaked - that is what will give the tunnel of fudge effect when it has cooled down!

 

- Leave the cake to cool in its tin for at least 2hrs as trying to remove it while it is too warm will result in the cake falling apart.

 

- Turn the cake out onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

 

- Prepare the glaze by stirring together the icing sugar, cocoa powder and warm milk until you get a thick, glossy mixture. 

 

- Pour the glaze over that cake and allow it to set before serving.
