Ingredients

  • 1 cup Brewed coffee
  • 1 cup Butter Unsalted
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1/2 cup Sour cream
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract

Ganache

  • 1 cup Chocolate chips Semisweet
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream

Decoration

  • 2 tbsp Sprinkles Or mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • In a nonstick saucepan, add coffee, butter cocoa powder and heat over medium high heat. Mix until the butter melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and let this chocolate mixture cool down for 10 minutes. 
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture, eggs and sour cream, vanilla extract into the dry flour mixture bowl and and mix until just combined and smooth. 
  • Pour this batter in a greased and floured a 10 to 12 cup nonstick bundt pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until an inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean.  
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool right side up for 10 minutes. Then, turn it over to a cooling rack and let it cool for another 5 minutes and then, gently remove the pan off the cake. 
  • Allow the cake to cool down completely.
  • While the cake is cooling, prepare the ganache icing: Add chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20 second increments and mixing often until icing is silky smooth. 
  • Pour this on top of the cooled cake. 
  • Decorate with sprinkles and enjoy.
