I love recipes where you just know the outcome is going to be delicious. This cake was no exception. I found the recipe on seriouseats.com and could not wait to start making it! I love Bundts, and the word, too 🙂 This one is made with coffee, cocoa and bananas and topped with powdered sugar. So simple and elegant and the perfect breakfast, afternoon snack or dessert. Let’s go bake a Bundt!
What you will need:
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup coffee
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (I used light but you could use dark as well)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
3 large eggs at room temperature, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Feel free to add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, I did not have any so I left them out.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, cocoa and coffee. Over medium-high heat, stir until boiling. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the cocoa mixture. Whisk in bananas and yogurt (or sour cream). Then add eggs and vanilla and whisk until combined. Stir in walnuts if using.
Spray Bundt pan with non-stick spray and then pour in batter. Bake for about 45 minutes.
Let cool about 20 minutes on a wire rack before inverting onto serving plate to cool completely. Once completely cooled, dust with powdered sugar, slice and enjoy!
