This is a real quick post for a fabulous winter cake………… Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake!
It was #cake monday…….only on a Tuesday cause of MLK Day. I was fresh out of ideas for my cake contribution, until I came across recipes on Pinterest for Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake.
There are quite a few recipes for this cake, but the one from Cookie and Cups is perfect. I used the recipe without any changes. So thank you Cookies and Cups!
This cake is dense, chocolatey and really does taste like hot chocolate. The marshmallows are the perfect decoration and taste.
