TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST ROCKY ROAD CHOCOLATE BUNDT CAKE
use good coffee: coffee is really the unsung hero of a good chocolate cake. It adds a rounded and aromatic aspect that intensifies the chocolate flavor. for this recipe, I used Godiva hazelnut coffee but any one of your favorites will do.
low and slow: this cake takes a while. it’s loaded with marshmallows and chocolate chips! you want to avoid opening the oven to check on this cake since the added weight will give it another reason to deflate. it also helps the marshmallows from burning. closer to the end they’ll start popping out of the cake!
smooth out your frosting if you find that your cake frosting isn’t smooth. that may just mean that your cream cheese or butter wasn’t soft enough. place the frosting in the microwave at increments of 5 seconds to lightly heat up the fat. run the beaters on high to whip the frosting up. if you go too far and it gets too hot. return the frosting to the fridge until it firms up.
toast your pecans: don’t leave it to the bake to warm up the pecans. while I’m making the batter i like to go ahead and just toss in the pecans in the preheating oven that way I don’t leave them unattended since they only need to roast for 5 minutes and they cool quick enough to make on the spot.
