Biscoff and Chocolate Rocky Road Bundt Cake

Biscoff and Chocolate Rocky Road Bundt Cake

With my last month’s epic Bundt cake disasters and then final success, I was bracing myself up for this month’s theme with the #BundtBakers. If last month’s epic battle with the Bundt taught me anything, It was this – “Respect the Bundt! For it has a mind of its own”.
I was keen to try my favorite brownie recipe for this month’s theme – Rocky Road. I have made a bundt cake with the recipe a few times and it has been a success. So I was acting cool as a cuke and thinking, “I got this”!
But I forgot, the bundts have a mind of their own. I added walnuts into the recipe and then let it bake for a bit before adding marshmallows. Turns out, marshmallows always find a way into the deep crevices of the pan after turning into molten liquid and not setting back up. I was expecting that bit, but what I was not expecting was that the cake will drop out of the pan like it hated staying with it any longer. Oh how Impressive it was for 3 seconds! The cake then melted on to itself and went into a puddle on my kitchen counter.
Epic. Disaster. Again!

What was worse was that my teen’s friends had come over to help out decorating the cake and they had plans of using marshmallow cream and other good stuff on it. Now all they could do was gape at the big puddle of chocolate mess and ask me if they should eat the stuff with a spoon or put a straw in it to drink up the chocolate. It took a batch of giant sized chocolate cookies to buy their silence on the matter and for a difficult one to please ( my own child) it might be a few more batches of cookies before the matter will be taken into advisement.

Oh well! As you know by now, giving up is not something I am good at. So I had to try again. And I did. This time I went a little traditional. A regular chocolate cake, filled with a little biscoff spread and biscoff cookies and topped with classic rocky road stuff – chocolate, marshmallows and nuts.
Oh Jackpot! Great flavors and a wow factor when I cut the cake. I am in Bundt heaven for now!

  1. What a wonderful idea of using biscoff as a biscuit element, the swirl of it through that fudgy cake is irresistible. Love all the toppings too!

     
  2. This cake looks epic. That topping… omg. SO good! I’m sorry you had bundt troubles (again) but really glad that this one turned out and it looks amazing!!

     
  3. Gorgeous cake, I love that biscoff spread swirled in there! I thought about doing the same but wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I guess it would have been great!
    I love the way you decorated the top of your cake too!
    As for the puddle of chocolate on the counter, I would have opted for the straw…

     
  4. delicious cake

     
  5. Wow, how pretty and I love the swirl inside too!

     
  6. Yay for perserverance! If it’s any consolation, I’ve baked a batch of shortcakes 3 times – ok, my oven went out on the second batch so I “guess” that doesn’t count but (a) I don’t live at altitude and (b) I went to culinary school -LOL! Your finished cake is beautiful and definitely worth the effort!!!

     
  7. I think warm chocolate meltiness sounds divine. Your cake, however, looks amazing.

     
  8. So yummy!!

     
  9. Puddle of cake to scoop up with a spoon. Now that was a disaster. I’m glad your next cake turned out so nicely.

     
  10. You should have just handed them each a spoon, Anshie, and you would have been Mother of the Month!

    I love the biscoff cookie in the second cake though. Very cool! And I would have loved to help you decorate that top. I can see you are also of the “more is more” mentality.
