Hot Fudge Bundt Cake is the chocolate cake of all chocolate cakes! A decadently delicious chocolate bundt cake is drizzled and perfectly coated with a homemade hot fudge sauce. Each warm, fudge-coated bite of moist, chocolate cake is pure heaven. Imagine all the wonderful things about hot fudge and put that into cake form. I just couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you!
What is Hot Fudge Bundt Cake?
Hot Fudge Bundt Cake is the perfect marriage between chocolate cake and hot fudge!
First off, you start with a chocolate-rich, moist bundt cake that bakes up in the oven.
Then, you create the most decadent homemade hot fudge on the stove top.
Next, you generously pour the hot fudge ALL over the bundt cake!
Finally, DIG IN! 🙂
The Best Ways to Serve Hot Fudge Bundt Cake
When it comes to serving this decadent dessert, there’s several ways to go about it! Let’s talk about the different options:
- Serve it up perfectly messy! That means pouring all of the hot fudge sauce on top of the cake and letting it pool on the plate – just like I did in these photos! Tip for this method: use a good plate with a lip on it so the hot fudge doesn’t go everywhere (like mine). This makes for quite the show-stopper! You could even pour the hot fudge all over the cake in front of your guests and get ready for all the “ooooo’s” and “aaahhhhhh’s”.
- Slice the cake and serve the hot fudge on the side. This way, all the guests can pour their own hot fudge! How fun would that be??
- Pour the hot fudge on the cake when it is sitting on a wire rack with a tray underneath it. This way, you will have a perfectly “glazed” bundt cake without all of the hot fudge pooling on the plate. You would do this in several batches to use up all of the hot fudge and make sure that the cake is fully coated.
In my opinion, option 1 and 2 are my favorites. I just love the chocolatey fun!
How to Store
Believe it or not, this recipe actually does really well as leftovers! Wanna know the secret? Re-heating your slice for about 20 seconds in the microwave…YES! The hot fudge aspect fully returns to give you a dessert that tastes like it was fresh out of the oven.
If you need to prepare the cake in advance, you can make the bundt cake as directed, let it cool completely, wrap it in plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator overnight. Bring it out of the refrigerator about a couple hours before pouring the hot fudge (made right before serving) over the top.
In the case of your cake already being glazed with all the hot fudge, I recommend slicing and storing the slices together in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Re-heat your slice for about 20 seconds before digging in!
We are fully and completely in LOVE with this Hot Fudge Bundt Cake, and I know you will be too! I’m about to go re-heat another slice as we speak…
