Chocolate Bundt Cake
3/4 cup (2 1/4 oz./65 g) cocoa powder, plus more for dusting
2 cups (10 oz./315 g) all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. table salt
2 tsp. instant espresso powder
1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) hot water
12 Tbs. (1 1/2 sticks) (6 oz./185 g) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch (12-mm) pieces
4 oz. (125 g) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup (7 oz./220 g) firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) buttermilk
Preheat an oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease a square Bundt pan and dust with cocoa powder; tap out the excess cocoa powder.
In a bowl, whisk together the 3/4 cup (2 1/4 oz./65 g) cocoa powder, the flour, baking soda and salt. In a heat-safe measuring cup, dissolve the espresso powder in the hot water. Set aside.
Put the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl and place the chocolate on top. Microwave on medium power for 2 minutes, then continue microwaving on high in 15-second increments until the chocolate looks wet and the butter is completely melted. Do not overheat. Stir gently but thoroughly until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Let cool slightly.
Whisk the sugar into the chocolate mixture until smooth, then whisk in the vanilla and eggs. Gently whisk in half of the espresso. Whisk in half of the flour mixture, followed by half of the buttermilk and the remaining espresso. Stir in the remaining flour mixture and buttermilk until smooth.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and, using a rubber spatula, spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Using a serrated knife, saw off any cake that rose above the edge of the pan. Invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan. Let the cake cool completely, at least 2 hours.
Chocolate Stout Cake
Cocoa powder for dusting
24 Tbs. (3 sticks) (12 oz./375 g) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups (12 fl. oz./375 ml) stout (such as Guinness)
1 cup (8 oz./250 g) sour cream
1 pkg. Chocolate Stout Cake Mix
Preheat an oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease a square Bundt pan and dust with cocoa powder; tap out theexcess cocoa powder.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Whisk in the stout and set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sour cream until well blended. Whisk in the butter-stout mixture until well combined. Using a rubber spatula and working in two additions, fold in the cake mix until completely incorporated.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and, using a rubber spatula, spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Using a serrated knife, saw off any cake that rose above the edge of the pan. Invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan. Let the cake cool completely, at least 2 hours.

Love it and highly recommend it!Date published: 2019-06-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Loves2Bake from Great pan for a different presentation! As with all my W-S pans, this one is another winner.Date published: 2019-01-11Rated 5 out of 5 by wtstat619 from Versatile quality I reach for this pan often. Very happy with how well cakes come out and clean up.Date published: 2018-12-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Louise from Stunning Cake! This unique shape makes a dramatic looking cake. I've made a dark chocolate cake with bright white marshmallow glaze several times. The effect is gorgeous. No trouble removing it from the pan. Love this pan!Date published: 2017-03-04Rated 3 out of 5 by Nonenone22 from Not that great Packaging was in a clear plastic bag that was ripped open, also with no nordic ware labels or cardboard wrap that usually comes on the pans. it was thrown in a box that was smashed. The pan seems ok but i am not sure its a genuine nordic pan?Date published: 2016-10-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Dahleen from Nice Lines This is a very heavy and durable pan. I just used this yesterday with a box cake mix. Unlike the other reviewer, I only used one box and it was more than enough. I topped the mix with macerated peaches. I sprayed the pan with Bak-Klene spray and the cake came out PERFECTLY I was amazed because a couple weeks ago I used the pumpkin pan with a generic version of Pam spray and it would not release. It was a cinch to clean because the Bak Klene made the cake slip right out when flipped upside down. I used my Maier non stick brush to wash it. This will make a cool Jello mold.Date published: 2016-08-05Rated 4 out of 5 by MIAcakelady from beautiful but hard to work with design this cake design is beautiful but in order to get the full effect it takes a lot of batter. I make mine from scratch but for those of you using a box, you will have to make two and use the extra to make cupcakes. Otherwise you have to really take a lot of the "dome" off, thus making a small cake. I will continue to use just need to be aware of size in final product.Date published: 2015-11-12
