From the Archives – Brown Sugar Chocolate Bundt Cake

I first found this recipe in Southern Living Magazine in December of 2014. It was one of the first recipes that I felt didn’t need any changes. It was actually an advertisement for Kraft products.

Once I made it I knew it was perfect as is. I even titled the post, “If it Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It!”

I made dinner for a friend that had recently had a hip replacement. I wanted dinner to be good but pretty simple. this cake was the best way to finish a dinner of roast chicken, potatoes and green beans.

I love the was the brown sugar gives it a molasses undertone but the acid in the buttermilk cuts right through too much sweetness. I used the chocolate that was called for but you could easily change this recipe up with a different chocolate or even adding toffee chips. I hope you enjoy this oldie but goodie!

Don’t forget to tag me on instagram when you make this recipe and give me a follow while you are there @whiskinthesouthern.
