Kitchen Sink Bundt Cake



Kitchen Sink Chocolate Bundt Cake

Ingredients:
2 1/3 cups cake flour
3/4 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
1 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, divided use
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup toffee bits
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup coarsely chopped peanut butter-filled pretzels
3/4 cup coarsely chopped chocolate sandwich cookies
1/4 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
1/3 cup caramel sauce

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with flour-added cooking spray.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla, until combined, about 1 minute. Reduce mixer speed to low, and beat in flour mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Continue to beat for 1-2 minutes, or until ingredients are well combined; stir in 1 cup chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and toffee bits until combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan, and shake/tap a few times, to allow batter to settle into all of the creases. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 55-60 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into cake comes out with moist crumbs attached.
Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack; run a knife around the edges of pan, and invert cake onto platter; cool for 45 minutes.

Bring cream to a boil, in a small saucepan, over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, and stir in the additional 3/4 cup chocolate chips, until melted and smooth; drizzle evenly over cake and spread with a knife.

Sprinkle and pack pretzel pieces, cookie pieces, and peanuts onto top and sides of cake; drizzle with caramel sauce.

Makes 10 servings

  10. Sounds like a winner- have you got a contest to enter this recipe into?
    Don't you have like neighbors, friends, starving college students you can giveaway your leftover sweets and baked goods to? It's such a shame that they get thrown away...

  11. Oh, my. Oh, my my. Oh my goodness. Everything I love and nothing I don't. Guess what I'll be making our October revival at church in a few weeks? Let me print this recipe off right now. I'll be the envy of everyone...

  12. Why do you throw them in the garbage bin? Pity we are not neighbours.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow! I can see why this would be a favorite! I am definately going to have to try this! Sugar high on the way!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Emiline, why don't you try to sell your pies and cakes instead of throwing them away? What a sad thing! Or maybe you can take them to a school or something!

    I know you ate this one (it looks awesome), but I bet the other ones are sooooooo good too... open your own shop!

  18. Holy cow! This cake looks AMAZING! I don't even want to think about the number of calories in it...but I'm definatly adding it to my list of things to bake. :)

    You really should read the Twilight books! They are fabulous. And they are "young adult fiction" so it's a pretty easy read, eventhough they are about 500+ pages.

  19. Ups, I forgot to say that there's something for you in my blog.

    I don't see my previous comment, maybe you didn't approve it yet.

    Happy day!

  26. Holy cow there really is EVERYTHING in there. It's like a mix of chocolate awesome :)

    I love waking up each morning and seeing slivers and pieces of cake gone. I chuckle a bit, but am glad everyone else really digs it :)

  33. chocolate cake would be heaven right now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh boy! That is one helluva cake! I can understand why there were no leftovers. It looks sublime!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sounds dreamy, for sure. I like the crunchy outer coating. It reminds me of a candy bar, but much better of course, because it's a cake! I can definitely see how and why this went so fast! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. You should have your own
    shop and I would shop there every day!!!!!!!!!the cake looks so good

    ReplyDelete

  40. Yum! I love a good mix of flavors and texture.

    I found the figs at my local grocery store (HyVee) though it was the first and last time I'd ever seen them there before.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, this sounds decadent and oh so good. Like a really good candy bar.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Now you're talkin' my kind of language here. This would also be a great way to introduce a variety of different chocolate chips if a person wanted to, especially to those chocolatiers.

    Keep on this track, please?

    ReplyDelete
  43. phew, that sure is a lot of ingredients-the name makes sense now! that being said, it looks DELICIOUS! yum, i'm going to have to try this soon for sure!

    ReplyDelete

  57. Umm, I think I just went into diabetic shock just looking at that picture...amazing.
    The problem with this cake: I would probably end up eating the entire thing by myself. In the course of about 32 hours...

    ReplyDelete
  58. This is exactly what I have been looking for!! My husband's birthday is this Sunday and he is a peanut butter/chocolate freak- I am making my grocery list now! THANK YOU- you saved me!

  60. wow, it IS everything but the kitchen sink! kinda like these cookies we made for TWD recently (http://www.goodeatsblog.com/2008/09/chunky-peanut-butter-and-chocolate.html)

    but it looks sinfully delicious!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh Good Lord this sounds amazing! And you weren't kidding about it having everything but the kitchen sink! Yowza, I want some now!

    ReplyDelete

    I have wished for a while that I invented the Bundt pan! I just think it is genius. I did a post with a Bundt pan yesterday!

    Bon Voyage Dear Emiline...

  66. This is killing me. Killing me! I just got the results of my bloodwork back today, and I'm healthy enough to eat a couple slices of this, with no ill effects.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Whoa this looks amazing Emiline!!!
