Recipe question for: Chocolate Bundt Cake

Nargess, I make the full recipe and cook some of it in a cake pan and some of it in a loaf pan. I've used both a 9inch by 5 inch pan and a 11 inch by 5 inch pan... you just have to adjust the baking time based on the size of the pan. For the 9"x5", I'll start checking it after 35 minutes.

CarlaCooks.. what size loaf pan did you use? and did you not need to reduce (half) the recipe for the loaf?

I have made made this cake many times, yet I've never used a bundt pan! The recipe makes enough batter for me to cook a 9 in circular cake (don't fill more than 2/3, this batter really rises) plus a loaf pan. The loaf takes about 35 or 40 minutes to cook, and the cake takes over an hour (between 1 hour to 1 1/4 hours). After 50 minutes of baking, I check the cake every 5 minutes until the toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy the great recipe!

I've made it in a (I think standard-sized) 9" Bundt pan. I think people have also made it a layer cake using 2 8" cake pans. It's really great--try it!
