Chocolate fudge macaroon bundt cake may be small but it packs a flavorful punch. Moist chocolate cake with light crumb filled with succulent macaroon and topped with dark chocolate ganache makes for a mouth-watering dessert that your family will love.
I love chocolate and coconut together. Coconut gives baked goods a wonderful texture and flavor. So I’ve been wanting to make this cake for some time. I polled our Facebook group and they ranked this as their first choice for new recipes too.
So why the wait? Well this cake took several tries to get right. I figured out the macaroon filling on the first try. It’s so simple just like the cookie – coconut, egg whites and a little sugar.
The problem was the cake. The first cake I made stuck to the pan. I mean really stuck to the pan. It tasted great but all the buttering and flouring and letting it cool in the pan a bit before removing didn’t work.
We’re all busy so, if you’re going to make a cake from scratch, it should come out of the pan.
So I went in search of a new chocolate bundt cake recipe. I found this Chocolate Fudge Bundt Cake from King Arthur Flour. The cake here is almost identical but there wasn’t nearly enough ganache so I doubled that. (Can you ever have enough ganache? I mean really?)
I baked mine in a silicone pan and the batter is heavy enough that it caused the pan to bulge. You can see that the left side of the cake is a bit bigger than the right side in the photo below. Removal from the silicone pan was pretty easy but use a metal pan if you want better results.
I meet a group of friends every Wednesday for dinner. This gathering and work are my tasting groups. If they like it, it’s good enough to put here.
This chocolate fudge macaroon bundt cake was a hit at the Wednesday dinner party. I saw people using their fingers to get the crumbs off their plates. You know it’s good when manners go out the window.
To make sure the cake didn’t stick, I mixed melted butter and flour together and used my fingers to grease the pan. I made sure I got it all. Then I let the cake cool in the pan until it was lukewarm. It came out perfectly.
