How to prepare

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  4. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the cake surface springs back when lightly touched. Let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan on a rack. Remove from the pan and let it cool completely on the rack.


  1. Mix the powdered sugar and cocoa together until well blended. Add the butter or margarine and beat well. Add enough water to obtain a good spreading consistency.
  2. Spread the glaze over the cooled cake, allowing some of the glaze to drizzle down the sides of the cake.

How did I get this recipe?

I remember the sense of anticipation I felt when I first discovered this recipe for Chocolate Bundt Cake. It was many years ago, back when I was just a young girl learning the ins and outs of cooking from my own grandmother. She was a wonderful cook, and I always looked forward to spending time in her kitchen, watching her work her magic with ingredients.

One day, as we were going through her collection of recipes, my grandmother pulled out a tattered old cookbook that had been passed down through the generations. It was filled with all sorts of delicious recipes, but one in particular caught my eye - a recipe for Chocolate Bundt Cake. I had never heard of such a thing before, but as my grandmother began to explain the process of making it, I knew I had to give it a try.

The ingredients were simple enough - flour, sugar, eggs, butter, cocoa powder, and a few other pantry staples. But it was the method of putting it all together that intrigued me the most. My grandmother showed me how to cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, then add in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Next came the dry ingredients, sifted together and added to the wet mixture in batches, alternating with milk to create a smooth batter.

Once the batter was ready, my grandmother helped me carefully pour it into a greased and floured Bundt cake pan, smoothing it out with a spatula before placing it in the oven to bake. The smell that filled the kitchen as the cake baked was intoxicating - rich and chocolatey, with a hint of vanilla and butter wafting through the air.

As the cake cooled, my grandmother showed me how to make a simple chocolate glaze to drizzle over the top, adding a touch of sweetness and shine to the finished product. And when we finally sliced into the cake and took our first bites, I knew I had discovered a new favorite recipe.

Over the years, I have made that Chocolate Bundt Cake countless times, tweaking the recipe here and there to suit my own tastes. I have shared it with friends and family, bringing it to potlucks and parties, always receiving rave reviews and requests for the recipe.

But it wasn't until recently that I learned the true origins of the recipe. It turns out that my grandmother didn't actually come up with it herself - she had learned it from a dear friend many years ago, who in turn had gotten it from her own mother. It had been passed down through the generations, each cook adding their own special touch to make it their own.

And now, as I pass on the recipe to my own grandchildren, I can't help but feel a deep sense of gratitude for the women who came before me, sharing their knowledge and love of cooking with future generations. I know that this Chocolate Bundt Cake will continue to be a cherished recipe in our family for years to come, a delicious reminder of the bond that we all share through food and tradition.
