These eye-catching cakes are the perfect size for one, and their rich, spongy texture will have you head over heels for these treats! So get ready to treat yourself for once with this splendidly rich Double Chocolate Bundt Cake!
Dark Chocolate Couverture: Couverture is a special type of chocolate designed with melting in mind. It is crafted with a little extra cocoa butter so it melts smoothly and quickly. Using dark chocolate couverture in this bake gives you a bold bittersweet flavor without any fuss!
Eggs: Eggs are the trick to this perfectly soft and delightful cake! Eggs are made up of two parts: the yolk and the whites. The yolks contain all the egg’s richness and fat, while the whites are pure protein. When they are split, the yolks can bring a decadent, rich flavor to the recipe, and the whites can be whipped into a type of texture-enhancing meringue.
Granulated Sugar: Granulated sugar brings a little sweetness to the cake. It also helps to give the exterior of the cake a lovely crunchy sugar texture!
Cake Flour: There are many types of flour, each with its purpose. Cake flour is a low-protein flour designed to be light and airy. Using this variety of flour ensures your cake has the perfect spongy texture. In a jam, you can use another flour, like all-purpose; however, it can adversely affect the texture of the cake.
Baking Powder: This common pantry ingredient is a leavening agent that helps the cake rise. If you’re all out, use equal parts baking soda and cream of tartar as a substitute.
Milk Chocolate Couverture: Milk chocolate brings an extra creamy note of chocolatey goodness to round out the darker cocoa taste. You can also opt to use a second helping of dark chocolate or white chocolate instead.

💭 Top Tips
There is nothing worse than putting all the effort into a cake only to have it stick to the pan! Save yourself the heartache by greasing the pan with butter then sprinkling it with breadcrumbs or even a little A.P. flour. This ensures that your cake will come out of the pan cleanly and easily.
Be very careful when separating the eggs. Even the tiniest bit of yolk can inhibit your whites from whipping to their full potential. And be very careful to simply fold the whites into the batter so you do not lose all that delicious airy lift!
🌡️ Chocolate Tempering
Water bath: If you use a water bath for melting, you need two pots of different sizes. Fill one pot 3-4 finger-widths with water and place the second, smaller pot in it. The second pot should not touch the water! Now put the chocolate to be melted into the upper, smaller pot and melt it over moderate heat while stirring over the rising steam.
Tempering unit: Add the chocolate to be melted to the tempering unit and set it to the appropriate melting temperature. White and milk chocolate: 40 °C // 104 °F, dark chocolate 50 °C // 122 °F.
Make an unforgettable chocolate icing for these tasty cakes using 5.29 oz (150 grams) of heavy cream, 5.29 oz (150 grams) of dark chocolate, and 5.29 oz (150 grams) of milk chocolate. Bring the heavy cream to a boil and then stream it over the chocolate. Beat the mixture into a lovely chocolate ganache to use on top of the bundts.
- Bundt Pans: Choose two small-sized Bundt pans for this cake recipe.
- Electric Mixer: For beating the egg whites. If you don’t have one, try whipping the whites in a food processor!
- Double Boiler: A water bath or tempering device will also do the trick!
- Medium Bowl
- Cooling Rack

Once fully cooled, the cakes can be stored wrapped or in an airtight container. Keep the cake at room temperature for up to one week.

This exceptional dessert is perfect on its own or paired with a bold cup of coffee. The rich chocolate flavor is positively irresistible when paired with fresh fruit, caramel, whipped cream, or just more chocolate!
This delicious double chocolate cake is nut-free and very light in dairy; however, it has eggs, gluten, and chocolate which can both be upsetting for some allergy sufferers. If you want to cut the dairy out of this cake, use only dark chocolate.
