Chocolate Ganache Coffee Bundt Cake
Chocolate Ganache Coffee Bundt Cake / Dessert / Baking
As the days get colder and we move into Autumn there’s nothing better than cosying up with a warm beverage and slice of cake. This moist Coffee Bundt Cake is super easy and perfect for the coffee addicts out there for that extra boost. The Cocoa Loco “Dark Chocolate Coffee Bean Bar” was the perfect accompaniment and added a delicious twist on a classic chocolate ganache.
230g Soft Unsalted Butter
230g Light or Dark Soft Brown Sugar
4 Large eggs
230g Self Raising Flour
2 Tbsp Strong Coffee (mix 2 Tbsp of instant coffee with 2.5 Tbsp boiling water and leave to cool)
100g Cocoa Loco Dark Chocolate Coffee Bean Bar
75ml Double Cream
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees/ 170 degrees fan. Grease and lightly flour a bundt tin or a loaf tin will also work fine.
In a stand mixer beat together the sugar and butter for at least 3 minutes until lighter in colour and nicely fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time beating well between each. Don't panic if the mixture starts to split as the flour will bring it back together.
Sift over the self raising flour and fold together on a slow speed.
Pour in 2 Tbsp of strong cooled coffee/ espresso and mix until fully combined. Be careful not to over mix the batter. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
Spoon the cake batter into the prepared tin and level out the top with the back of a spoon.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
For the ganache, pop the coffee bean dark chocolate into a food processor and blend to a fine crumb. Place in a heatproof bowl. (Alternatively, chop the chocolate into really small pieces).
Slowly heat the double cream in a pan until hot but not boiling or bubbling. Pour the cream over the chocolate. Leave to sit for 30 seconds before stirring gradually into a silky, pourable ganache.
Pour or pipe the ganache onto the cooled coffee cake and decorate as desired. I sprinkled mine with chopped walnuts and a dusting of icing sugar.
Grab yourself a mug of something warm and enjoy a big slice of cake alongside!
