Milk Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate–that’s the best part of this easy to bake Milk Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe! I thought that might just get your attention.

I’m a big fan of Bundt cakes.  They just scream “homemade” and “small Indiana town” don’t you think? Either way, it’s no more difficult than mixing ingredients and pouring them into a prepared bundt cake pan. Easy, peasy.

Plus, Bundt Cakes provide plenty of servings so they are great to cut in half, keep some on hand for immediate use, and freeze the other half for later! Or, you can share and make friends in your own Indiana town.

    Yummy – this looks so good and moist. Must add these ingredients to my grocery list tomorrow.

    I WILL be making this.

    Ok, yummy! I love little bundt cakes. We’ve had them at many different restaurants and often have them for holiday dinners. Great recipe!

    I know what you mean…I am a recipe addict, myself! Ha ha!

    Totally lovin’ the idea of a bundt cake bakery. Maybe I should start my own? 😉

    Simple is good.

    This looks delicious. I bake a lot and have a yummy chocolate cake recipe in my arsenal, but I’m always looking for more. Each cake I find is slightly different. I love that. There’s a place out here in San Diego: Nothing Bundt Cakes that makes, well obviously, only bundt cakes. Their way of dressing the cake is a bit odd though — I’ve always been in love with a simple bundt cake (no icing necessary because it’s already pretty and delicious).

    There is nothing worse than finding a recipe you want to make and then being out of one ingredient! 😉

    Ok, you totally got me with the chocolate. Look divine! Can’t wait to give it a go. Wish I lived in Indiana! Never been but now I know exactly where to go when I do. So impressive.

    Yum I could so make this. If only I had the candy bar in my fridge.

    But there’s always next week.
