Milk Chocolate Bundt Cake (TWD)



This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Kristin of I'm Right About Everything: Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes.

This week's post is particularly short because I've been busy with the baby - I was happy to even get the baking time in! I don't have mini bundt cake pans, so I doubled the recipe and used my regular bundt pan.

Some folks seemed to have some trouble with the chocolate glaze so I took the tip from one of the bakers in our group to halve the corn syrup and that seemed to do the trick, as my glaze turned out just fine.


My husband got to bring this one in to work, so I didn't get to try it. He said it was a decent cake, but a little dry. That seemed to be the general opinion on this one - that it was just okay. If you're looking for a good chocolate cake recipe, try the "She Ain't Heavy" Chocolate Cake recipe, or the Cocoa-Buttermilk Cake recipe.

Thanks, Kristin, for hosting this week. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed these mini chocolate treats!

* Recipes notes:
- If making this in a regular bundt pan, double the recipe.
- You can also make cupcakes instead of mini bundt cakes with this recipe.
- For the chocolate glaze, only add 1 teaspoon of corn syrup to the melted chocolate. If making a regular size bundt cake, make 1.5x the glaze recipe.

  8. My cakes weren't dry, but that may be due to the cherry preserves I used instead of the cinnamon,nut cocoa swirl.
    Your cake looks perfect.

  11. Your glaze does look good. I should have read up on the glaze again. I never have luck with corn syrup in glazed, but felt if Dorie used it, then maybe this time it would work out. It didn't! Great job!

  19. Your glaze is probably the only one that worked! Excellent job!! Too bad it was a little dry. I wonder why that seemed to be a problem for so many people considering there seems to be a sufficient amount of liquid.
