Ingredients

For the chocolate glaze:

  • 2 oz Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • + Extra Chocolate for Chocolate Shavings , optional

Instructions

  • First prepare your bundt pan for baking by greasing it with butter (use more rather than less) and flouring it.
  • In a small sauce pan, combine sugar with water and simmer until the sugar has melted.
  • Meanwhile separate the eggs. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form. Now start adding the sugar water, one tablespoon at a time while whisking constantly. Once you have use all the sugar water, mix in egg yolks.
  • Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and mix until well combined. At last add oil and give it a final mix.
  • Pour this batter into a 6 cup bundt pan. Cover the batter with chocolate chunks (don’t push them in the batter. They will sink during baking). Now cover the pan with tin foil.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 360°F/180°C. It will take about 30-35 minutes. 10 minutes before the end remove the tin foil.
  • When ready, let it cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan.
  • For the glaze melt chocolate and butter and pour it over the cake. Let it cool a bit before finishing it off with chocolate shavings.

Notes

When using Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder use baking soda instead of baking powder.
Tip: To make it extra moist and extra chocolate-y, simply dissolve sugar (2 tsp) and cocoa (1 tsp) powder in warm water. Pour it over the cake before glazing OR you can make holes with a skewer and pour the syrup over.
