Chocolate Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

There is just something so delicious about a deep, dark chocolate cake with creamy cream cheese frosting! Here is my version taken from this chocolate cake recipe (P.S. its the best, ever!). It definitely deserves its own post! My favorite way to enjoy this cake is when it is super cold right out of the fridge.  It makes it extra dense and moist!

Chocolate Bundt Cake

2 cups (250 g) cake flour
1 t (6 g) salt
2 t (10 g) baking soda
1 t (5 g) baking powder
3/4 cup (69g) unsweetened cocoa
2 cups (400 g) sugar
3/4 cup (180 ml) vegetable oil (I used avocado oil, it is healthier and you can't tell at all)
1 cup (240 ml) hot coffee (I am not a coffee drinker so I used Choffy.  It is roasted cocoa beans, seriously amazing stuff!)
1/2 cup (120 ml) buttermilk
1/4 cup (60 ml) cream
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 t vanilla bean paste

Preheat oven to 325.  Spray a Bundt pan with cooking spray and lightly flour.
Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Add the *hot coffee or Choffy, oil, milk, cream and buttermilk and beat for 2 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the vanilla and eggs. Beat for 2 more minutes. It will be very liquid-y.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for about 45-55 minutes.  The cake is ready when the cake springs back when lightly touched or when a toothpick comes out clean.
Let the cake cool for about 10 minutes in the pan.  Loosen the sides and remove to a cooling rack. Cool completely. Frost as desired.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1- 8oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
1 t vanilla
4-5 cups powdered sugar

Mix together cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Add vanilla and enough powdered sugar to desired spreading consistency.  I like mine thick so I can pipe it on.
