This chocolate cake recipe uses a generous amount of melted chocolate and sour cream which brings this chocolate cake to life. There are many reasons why sour cream goes well in cake batters. Firstly, sour cream contains bacteria cultures that tenderize the gluten in the cake batter resulting in a more dense and moist texture. It also combats and balances the sweetness from the sugar in the cake. You can substitute sour cream with Greek Yogurt or full fat thick plain yogurt or simply use the fat-free sour cream to cut down the calories. Usually, cakes with full-fat sour cream tend to be denser and moist compared to other substitutes. Regarding calories, two tablespoons of sour cream contain 60 calories, while the fat-free sour cream has only 25 calories. You may choose the variety that is right for you without compromising on the taste or calories. The texture, however, may vary based on the type of sour cream you choose.
An important baking tip for making that perfect shaped Chocolate Bundt Cake is thorough greasing and flour dusting. Make sure to cover the pan with plenty of butter and dust it with flour thoroughly. For a chocolate cake like this one, you could dust the pan with cocoa powder which makes for a prettier presentation. After pouring the chocolate cake batter into the pan, thump it a few times to let the air pockets escape and allow the batter into all the corners of the pan. Always let the cake stand for 10 minutes when you remove the cake from the oven. Invert cake onto a cooling rack and let it cool completely. This luscious, easy Chocolate Bundt Cake will stay fresh up to 3 days when stored in an airtight container. *
