Paleo Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Peppermint Ganache
Last month on Instagram I polled you guys on what holiday recipe you would like to see next on the blog. I gave you a handful of options such as:
-Pumpkin Mashed Potatoes
-Chocolate Bundt Cake with Peppermint Ganache
-Dairy Free Everything Bagel Cream Cheese Ball
-Thanksgiving Leftover Meatloaf
And the winner was: PALEO CHOCOLATE BUNDT CAKE WITH A CHOCOLATE PEPERMINT GANACHE!!!
Hence this post being about a recipe for Paleo Chocolate Bundt Cake, ha ha! You get where we’re going with this?! OK, good :) Glad to have you here.
Yes, cake, GLORIOUS CAKE won out with a whopping 86% of you requesting this gorgeous holiday dessert! But I’m not mad about it one single bit! The only thing I regret, is not making two of these, one to eat immediately and one to pop in the freeze for later. I mean… I did freeze a few slices and they froze very well, so I’m sure a whole cake or any extras (if you have any!) will taste really delicious when frozen for a later date.
One important thing to remember here is to make sure that your bundt cake pan is greased and dusted with some sort of flour! I can’t stress this enough! You do NOT want your cake to get stuck and not release from the pan. I used cocoa/cacao powder for this chocolate cake because I wanted it to be dark with no whiteish residue but you can also use a paleo friendly flour such as arrowroot or tapioca if needed.
In closing, before I release this delicious recipe into your precious hands, I want you to know that this cake was LOVED by ALL when I served it for Thanksgiving! All 4 Non-Paleo peeps at the dinner table devoured it and said it was divine, even my picky and hard to please 8 year old niece! This cake is a major winner in my household and I hope it will be in yours as well ;)
