#BundtBakers: Chocolate Brownie Bundt

Chocolate cake is great. Brownies are great. But what happens when you put them together?

Magic. Pure magic.

And also your coworkers ask you if you’re trying to kill them.

Of course not. I need my guinea pigs. (Said with all of the affection in the world.)

The theme for this month’s Bundt Bakers is chocolate and I scrolled through some chocolate cake recipes, none of them really appealing to me and then I found a chocolate brownie cake. How in the world did I not know this existed before then? What could be better than a chocolate cake? Simple: a chocolate brownie cake.

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme.
You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. http://www.pinterest.com/flpl/bundtbakers/
