a dangerous cake

This is a dangerous cake.  I know. It doesn't look dangerous.  It's looks like an innocent bundt cake -- retro, simple, and a little boring, but it was really, really good.

I needed to whip up a quick cake last weekend for a birthday brunch and wasn't up to anything which would require whipping egg whites, frosting or decoration.  I had never made a bundt cake, but as soon as I stumbled across this recipe for Chocolate Whiskey Bundt Cake on Epicurious, I dashed out to our local kitchen-wares shop and bought one of these cake pans.  I had planned to drizzle the top with melted white chocolate, but didn't even have time to do that. So I dumped some powdered sugar into a sieve, gave the top a dusting and that was good enough.

The only change I made to the recipe was substituting cognac for whiskey.  The aroma while this thing was in the oven drove us all a bit insane.  Buttery, chocolate, caramelized, boozy, oh my.

I love Epicurious.  Apparently 111 people have left reviews for this recipe, and 94% would make it again.  I would make it again, too.
