Essential EatingWell Chocolate Bundt Cake
Provided by


1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder

1/3 cup whole flaxseeds, ground (see Ingredient notes)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

1 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup rice bran oil or canola oil (see Ingredient notes)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup hot water

1/2 cup prune puree (see Tip), prune pie filling or Sunsweet Lighter Bake

4 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate or chocolate chips

Confectioner's sugar for dusting

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray and dust with flour (or use cooking spray with flour).

2. Spread nuts in a small baking pan and bake until golden and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.

3. Whisk flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, ground flaxseeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add buttermilk, brown sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Mix hot water and prune puree (or pie filling or Lighter Bake) in a measuring cup; add to the batter and whisk until incorporated. Fold in chocolate and the nuts with a rubber spatula. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.

4. Bake the cake until the top springs back when touched lightly and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn out onto the rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Yield: 16 servings
