Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake

It’s Christmas time and as many of you regular readers know, I’m a huge peppermint fan. So per my pattern of obsessive behavior, here’s another: Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake.

I tend to think everyone needs a few easy and elegant dessert options, especially now in the thick of  holiday crazy. And no, I’m not complaining. I love all the holiday madness. It comes once a year and I look forward to it starting in September.

My only fail so far this season has been when the little guy came to my room and asked me, “Ready for our hot chocolate and Christmas movie, Mom?” Well, my answer of “tomorrow” turned into three days later. Awesome mom fail #200-and-something.

Thankfully, I’ve made it up to him by now and we’ve been enjoying holiday tradition ever since. Although, I usually throw dessert in with mine–and why not? I’m pregnant, so eating for two is in full force (okay, so I don’t really need that excuse other than to justify my extra helping).

    I’ve got cupboards stocked full of peppermint candy – and now I know what to do with some of them (besides just eat them from the pack, of course). Looks stunning! :)

    Okay, what am I missing here? The links all go to a recipe for malted chocolate cake. What adjustments are we making to create the chocolate peppermint cake? Wouldn’t just leaving out the malted milk powder affect the cake? Do we add peppermint extract to the cake? Help!

      Catherine – you are not missing anything. :) The link goes to a chocolate cake recipe I used as the base. The malted milk powder is not left out, it’s there. The crushed malted milk chocolate balls were omitted and replaced with the crushed peppermint candy.

      Take a look at this post – I provide tips and tricks for the recipe here: http://www.bhg.com/blogs/delish-dish/2013/12/02/chocolate-peppermint-bundt-cake/

        I made the cake for a Christmas party last night and it was a huge hit. My husband just told me it’s even better today. Thanks for the great recipe!

    This looks delicious! What is malted milk powder & how is it different to regular milk powder? Can I substitute the 2? I have regular milk powder in the house already & have no clue where to look for malted milk powder. Suggestions?

    I’m making the Chocolate Peppermint Cake. :) Can I just leave out the malted milk powder? Is it for flavor or is it necessary for the cake to turn out right? If so can something else be substituted?
