Chocolate Whiskey Bundt Cake



To be very frank, me and Mohit are not big fans of chocolate....So I would not have made this cake if it was for us...But a lot of my readers asked me for more chocolate dessert recipes...It's the most liked flavor for dessert hands down...What if ,we don't like it...But I am glad I made it...It was deliciously rich and dense and the bitterness from whiskey  was the key feature....I realized, it tasted much better the next day....The cake keeps well for 4-5 days in the fridge....So here is the recipe....


All you need is ( recipe adapted from www.tastebook.com )


  • Unsweetened cocoa powder-1 cup plus 3 tbsp
  • Brewed coffee-1 and 1\2 cup
  • Whiskey-1\2 cup
  • Unsalted butter-1 cup
  • Sugar-2 cups
  • All purpose flour-2 cups
  • Baking soda-1 and 1\4 tsp
  • Salt-1\2 tsp
  • Eggs-2
  • Vanilla extract-1 tsp




Method of preparation

Pre heat the oven to 325 degree F
Grease a 11 cup bundt pan and dust with 3 tbsp cocoa powder
In a large pan, heat coffee, whiskey and butter and whisk till butter is melted
Remove from heat and add sugar
Whisk till sugar is dissolved
Keep aside
Whisk all purpose flour , remaining cocoa powder, salt and baking soda in another bowl
Whisk eggs and vanilla extract in another bowl
When the mixture is cooled, add egg and whisk well
Add the flour and whisk until just combined
The mixture will be bubbly
Pour the mixture in the prepared pan and bake for 50-60  minutes, till a knife comes out clean
Remove from the oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes
Remove the cake from the pan and cool on a wire rack
This cake tastes best, when kept for a day
Cover the cake with a cling film and leave on the counter overnight
Can be refrigerated for 4-5 days
