Chocolate and Almonds Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Chocolate and Almond Bundt Cake

What a delicious and perfect ingredient we have this month here at the #BundtBakers group, definitely chocolate is the most amazing and versatile ingredient to cook, from cakes, brownies, bundt, cupcakes, cookies, anyway the list is to long to name it all.
And what I love the most about chocolate is the you can make it super sweet, dense, spice and why not a little sinful is you ask me.
And this month I make the most perfect bundt cake ever, it is a combination of brownie, lava cake, and cake all in one.
It have bits of almonds for some crunchiness and the not so secret ingredient, coffee, yes it is an all in one bundt the am sure you are going to love it.
Not super sweet, but perfect to share with the children, all the you love in chocolate is here in this bundt cake, soft, chewy, crunchy and decadent.
Enjoy.
