Chocolate bundt cake

There has been some time since I baked the last chocolate cake, so the desire to do one came naturally.
Lately, my children are fighting to help me do the cakes. One is mixing the dried ingredients, one is mixing the wet ingredients and they both participate in cleaning the trace of batter from the bowls or whisk. Even that this requires a bit more time and attention from my side to avoid an eventual mess, I cannot be more proud to share this with them. It is that magical moment when a "which" is preparing a "potion" that will be totally transformed by the magical oven.
Coming back from the fairy tale land, this cake is a very easy to do one. It has a strong taste of chocolate that fits perfectly with all added flavors. The original recipe was suggesting to prepare a chocolate glaze and I was ready to do it. However, when cooled,  I took a bite and for me it was enough chocolate inside to add even more on top. I opted then to leave it naked and accompany it with small pieces of chocolate of the same form.

Bon appétit !
