Recipe: Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake

Summary: The cake I crave is not a cake that’s saturated in chocolate frosting. I’m talking about a dense/moist/slightly chewy chocolate cake with a few drizzles of chocolate frosting.

Ingredients

  • For the cake
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • For the glaze
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons agave nectar (or corn syrup)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
