Light Chocolate Bundt Cake
Why This Recipe Works
We discovered a few ways to lighten our chocolate Bundt cake recipe while retaining the rich chocolate flavor. First, we replaced some of the chocolate with cocoa powder, which has less fat per ounce. Then we mixed the cocoa with hot water to bloom its flavor and used a little espresso powder to accentuate the overall chocolate flavor. Finally, we replaced the butter with vegetable oil and used water in place of milk. Both substitutions helped bring out the chocolate flavor.
