Been a while since I dug out the bundt pan, but here’s an easy tasty bundt I brought to a party this weekend.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa (Dutch processed or not)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 and grease a 10 or 12 cup bundt pan.

In a small pot on the stove, combine the water, oil, butter, and cocoa over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat.

In a small bowl or your measuring cup, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. Stir into the batter, then pour into the prepared pan.

Easy peasy! Even though there’s only 1/10th as much cinnamon as cocoa powder, it still comes through and makes a great flavor!
