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.
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.
