1 bundt cake
50 min

This bundt cake has everything we could wish for in an autumn dessert - soft pumkin marbled cake with the most perfect fudgy chocolate ganache, topped with some cranberries and crunchy almonds. And the best part about this recipe if you’re not a fan of pumpkin:

1, just try it anyway, because i can guarantee that this recipe will change your mind

2. if I still couldn’t convince you, feel free to replace the pumpkin with shredded carrots.

P.s.: if you decide to give the recipe a go, make sure you don’t overbake it, even if it looks a little bit raw because you can easily dry it out.

Grease the bundt cake form with butter and thinly sprinkle some flour all over.
Mix the shredded pumkin with the flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs, oil and milk. Pour one half of the batter into the form. Add the cocoa powder into the rest and pour that into the form too.
Bake the cake for 40 minutes at 180C.
Heat the heavy cream until almost boiling. Pour it over the chocolate, cover it and leave it for a couple minutes. Mix it until it becomes fully homogene.
When the bundt cake is cooled, decorate it with the chocolate ganache (if it becomes too thick and stiff, warm it up in the microwave), almonds and cranberry.

    Thank you for this recipe, however I believe your first ingredient is a typo.

    • "1 smaller hokkaido, shredded"

    I did some Googleing and found out that Hokkaido is one of two things:

    1- Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s main islands.

    2- A dried Squid Snack.
