My family has been visiting for the last two months because the weather in the Midwest has been horrid. A long with this on set of snow birds to my house is also the home-style, comfort and classic way of cooking. Butter, sour cream, cream cheese, cheese of any sort are all staples of the diet.I added up all the butter used and it was about 5 pounds in a 10 day period. Quite frankly I should wright a book "how to gain weight in 30 days".
Well here is a start with this over the top bundt cake, It's so good.
Chocolate Swirl Bundt Cake
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup chocolate syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Greases and flour a bundt pan
Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Cream together butter, sugar, sour cream and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time beating well after each until thoroughly incorporated.
Add buttermilk to creamed mixture alternating with dry ingredients.
In a measuring cup combine syrup and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
Measure 2 cups of cake batter into a medium size bowl and stir in the syrup mixture until thoroughly incorporated.
Pour vanilla batter into cake pan and top with chocolate batter. Do not swirl.
Bake for 60-70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool on rack and remove from pan.
Glaze with vanilla and chocolate Ganache. See my post for Gourmet Brownies (which are decadent) for a Ganache recipe - for white chocolate ganache just substitute white chocolate chips.http://easylifemealandpartyplanning.blogspot.com/2014/03/chocolate-swirl-bundt-cake.html
