Cake #5: Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake

Here is what this cake was supposed to look like, according to the site I pinned the recipe from:

This is what it looked like in real life:

I genuinely do not know what happened, but when you turn your partially cooled cake out of the pan and it does this:
...you know you've messed up somewhere along the line.

Luckily the flavor was not compromised by it's lack of structural integrity and general resemblance to poo covered in poo topped with mini chocolate chips. That's right. We ate the thing. Not only that, but I took it to my in-laws for Sunday dinner and shared it with them in all its grotesque glory.

I have no shame when chocolate is involved.

Clearly I didn't follow the recipe very well, though, so it would be wrong to pretend that I know what I'm talking about by sharing it here. For all I know, I'd just be giving you instructions for making your very own giant poop donut.

But if you really want to try, you can go here.
May you have better luck than I did.


  1. I've had my fair share of crappy-looking bundt cakes and also bundt cakes that actually look lovely. Two things I've found that help:

    1) take the cake out of the pan RIGHT AWAY, rather than letting it cool as most recipes advise
    2) use Baker's Joy--that spray oil that also sprays flour at the same time.

    If I follow those two things, I can always get it out of the pan. If I don't, eh, the cake arrives pre-sliced at the party.

  2. I'd eat that. I don't even own a bundt pan, but I've always wanted one. I have a beautiful cake stand to use if I ever do get one. :) Gotta love ugly food that still tastes good. Here here to that!

    1. If you've already got the cake stand, you definitely need to treat yourself to a bundt pan. I insist. :)

      And yeah...it's always a little disappointing when my food turns out hideous, but what are you gonna do? Cake is cake!

  3. This is by far one of the most entertaining posts I've read all day. Well done! I suppose I get a kick out of the "too close to home" reality of it. Poop donuts all around! haha Thanks for the giggle.
