I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and followed it exactly which is very unusual for me as I normally consider recipes more of a guideline. The cake turned out very well, it was moist and very good. That being said, I have made better cakes that took much less effort and dirtied many less dishes than this cake. So, while I may make this cake again, I will not follow the recipe exactly. I will use it as a guideline and see how it turns out. I will let you know and share the adapted recipe with you if it turns out well. In the meantime, don't be afraid to make this cake for your holiday table, just be sure to give yourself time to wash all the dishes before your guests arrive.
Mocha Bundt Cake
as found at Allrecipes.com by alijmorris
3/4 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
2 c. sugar
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
4 egg yolks
1 t. baking soda
2 T. cold water
1/2 c. strong brewed coffee
1 c. coffee flavored liqueur, divided
2 T. vanilla extract
1 1/3 all purpose flour
4 egg whites
1 c. confectioners sugar
Preheat oven to 325*. Grease and flour a 10" Bundt pan. In a large measuring cup dissolve baking soda in water, then add coffee, 1/2 c. coffee liqueur and vanilla.
In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the cocoa and then the egg yolks, one at a time. Alternately beat in the flour and the coffee mixture just until incorporated.
In a large glass or metal mixing bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the chocolate batter, then quickly fold in the remaining whites until no streaks remain.
Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle removes cleanly. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then turn onto a cooling rack.While cake is cooling in the pan, combine the remaining 1/2 c coffee liqueur with the confectioners sugar in a small bowl to make the glaze. Pierce the warm cake all over with a fork or the skewer and drizzle the glaze a spoonful at a time over the cake until it is absorbed. Print Recipe
