#BundtaMonth: Chocolate Chobani Bundt Cake

I never was a huge cake fan, always preferring brownies or cookies to the mess inherent with cakes. But it may just be because, for most of my life, the only cake I ate was the kind that came out of a box. Bonus points for ease of use, and always exceptionally moist, but also kind of boring, and full of all kinds of creepy chemicals. Nah, I’ll pass.

I’ve tried making several cakes from scratch now, having particular success with the Samoa cupcakes I made for my first blogiversary in 2011. But there’s something to be said for dumping everything in a bowl, mixing by hand, and being done with it. Why over-complicate the situation?

This is the cake for you. One bowl, one cake pan, one spatula. Alright, you do have some measuring cups and various spoons, too, that will require a washing, but it’s so much easier than mixing up 2 or 3 separate parts–in 2 or 3 separate bowls–and uniting them in cakey bliss just before they enter the burning hot fires of hell. Nah. I have a life to live!

Make sure you use a really large bowl–I barely fit this in my Pampered Chef batter bowl and that’s 2 quarts. Other than that, spray away your bundt pan, pour it in, and marvel at the cake you just created in about the same time it takes to make box mix. Only this is a million times better. Go, you!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 cup Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt, finely ground
  • 2½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups raw (turbinado) sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 16-ounce container Chobani Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Greek yogurt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour (or spray well with baking spray) a 10-cup bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In a very large (bigger than 2-quart) mixing bowl, whisk together the water, espresso powder, and cocoa powder until smooth and no lumps remain.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir by hand, trying to be sure there are no dry spots but do not overmix.
  4. Pour into the prepared Bundt pan.
  5. Bake on the center rack for 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes.
  7. Place cooling rack over the top, invert the pan onto the cooling rack, and (hopefully) the cake will come out in one piece.
  8. Cool completely before serving.
