Snow on the Mountain Chocolate Bundt Cake

Snow on the Mountain Chocolate Bundt Cake
Have you ever had a cake pan that you have waited to use for just the perfect cake? Well, I have had my Oma's vintage cake pan for awhile now, and have never used it. I've also had this recipe in my collection for years just waiting to be made. This weekend, using my Oma's pan, I finally baked this deliciously moist Snow on the Mountain Chocolate Bundt Cake.

I wasn't sure how the cake would turn out using this old pan, but I was was pleasantly surprised when it just slid right out. I love the design of the pan, and I'm so glad to have put it to use. It even has the stamp "Kaiser ~ W. Germany" in it...a nod to my heritage. Though my mother doesn't remember my Oma baking cakes in this pan, it is nice knowing that it belonged to her and that she cherished it enough to keep it around for years. Perhaps she was in love with the design of it too!

After allowing to cool for a few minutes, invert cake onto cake plate. Admire the beauty of it, then sprinkle with powdered sugar, I mean "snow".

I will be making this cake again and again. It was so rich with chocolatey goodness and remained moist  even after a couple of days. So, when you've got cabin fever from being snowed in, grab a few ingredients and make your own Snow on the Mountain Chocolate Bundt Cake! It just might be enough to chase the winter blues away.
