KitKat Bundt Cake

KitKat Bundt Cake
I'm a total KitKat Chunky junkie. I'm a bit like that. I've mentioned 'that issue' I had with Milkybars before. When I was at uni it was Curly Wurlys. I have no self control when it comes to the chunky ones, and yes, I do nibble the chocolate off them like some kind of giant hamster. Bad form.

Anyway, this one was a special request for my husband's last day at work. I love using my Nordic Ware Bavaria tin when I'm covering the cake a chocolate, because it picks up those lovely ridges. I wasn't sure how this one would pan out, but it was hailed as the best one I'd sent him to work with - I'll take that! Perfect with a brew in lieu of an actual KitKat, or alongside it; I'm in no position to judge...

  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350g plain flour
  • 100g dark chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 200ml plain yoghurt
  • 50ml chocolate milk
  • 1 crushed KitKat Chunky - I pop mine in a food processor
  • 1 jar of chocolate spread (not the hazelnut type)
  • 1 KitKat to decorate

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3/160 c
  2. Prepare a regular sized bundt tin - 2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch with Cake Release spray/melted butter and dust with flour with a little cocoa mixed in.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
  5. In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  6. Pour the yoghurt and chocolate milk into a jug.
  7. Sift in a third of the flour mix followed by half the yoghurt mix. Repeat this until everything is combined.
  8. Stir in the crushed KitKat and melted chocolate.
  9. Give everything a quick mix on a low speed for about 10 seconds.
  10. Pour the mix into your prepared tin. 
  11. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. 
  12. Leave the cake to cool for ten minutes before removing from the tin.
  13. When the cake is fully cool, pop the chocolate spread into a jug and heat in the microwave to loosen it. Tip over your cake and decorate with bits of KitKat!
