So easy and oh so decadent. You won’t even believe how very moist, rich and delicious this Chocolate Covered Cherry Bundt Cake is!
I’ve made this cake twice. The first time, I had a house full of family and didn’t have time to get any pictures, but I didn’t mind making it again, just because it’s the best chocolaty cherry cake I’ve ever had!
I haven’t made a cake in ages before that, but I saw this on The Chew, when it was still on TV, then I saw Cooking with Carlee made one that looked so good too I had to try it. I happened to find a new Nordic Ware Bundt Pan on sale. Mine was so old, I was worried it would stick. Remember Teflon? That’s how old my bundt pan was. Now. this new one is so nice and heavy, all I had to do was spray a good non stick spray, and no cake was left behind.
I also really like Crisco Professional, you don’t need to use very much, just a light coating right before you pour the batter in. I always used to butter and flour the pans, but then it’s not as pretty when it comes out when the flour sticks to the cake. I’ve read that some people use cocoa powder instead, but I haven’t tried that. The Crisco spray worked perfectly. Just let the cake rest for about 20 minutes before flipping. I flipped the cake on a sheet pan with the rack, which I also sprayed for easy clean up, so when you pour the ganache on it rinses off easily.
An amazing invention we recently found for serving is this Libbey Selene 6-in-1 Multipurpose Server, Punch Bowl, Chip and Dip Bowl, Cake Stand
I’ve used it for serving these Crispy Bake Wings and I’m planing on using it for a trifle in the very near future. You just flip the dome and the base upside down, and you have a nice big bowl. Perfect for trifles, salads, and you can even use it as a punch bowl. You could also put the dome away, and use the base as a veggie tray. It’s great for saving space and it nice heavy glass. I think whoever invented that is a genius, we love it!
I’ve tried a lot of different “doctored cake mix” recipes before, and this is one of the best I’ve tried. Very, very moist, rich cake.
- Place your cake on a rack over parchment paper for easy clean up, and take your cake off the rack and put on to your serving plate before the ganache has set- otherwise it can attach to the rack and tear when you lift it off.
- I’ve also made this using Devils food cake mix
