CHOCOLATEY TUNNEL OF FUDGE CAKE

I call this Tunnel of Fudge Cake, Tunnel of Love Cake because I LOVE It!  

I wanted to try this recipe for years and finally did.CHOCOLATEY TUNNEL OF FUDGE CAKE HEAVEN RECIPE

CHOCOLATEY TUNNEL OF FUDGE CAKE HEAVEN RECIPE

One taste of the batter and I knew it was going to be delicious.  The batter tasted a lot like a creamy piece of fudge.  This cake has 2 cups of pecans which are a lot, but it allows every bite of this fudgy cake to have pecans which I love.  This cake is from the Bundt Classics cookbook by Nordic Ware.

The glaze is a simple chocolate glaze made with cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and milk.  The problem was that since I have several teenage boys in the house, I did not have any milk.  I should have used a little-evaporated milk instead, but I used heavy cream.  The glaze tasted fantastic, but it was more like a mousse.  When you put heavy cream in a recipe and turn on the electric mixer, it will turn into whipped cream.   Make sure you use milk if you want a glaze and not a delicious mousse.   I started not to show you the mousse on the cake, but I did add a picture at the bottom of this post.

Heat the oven 325 degrees.
