This may have been the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted! Very exceptionally moist! I was attracted to this recipe as I had some buttermilk, 'Lighter Bake' and also hazelnuts! I did tweak it some, replacing the cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of agave, reducing the water. I had no flax seed or a grinder so I put in wheat germ in place of that; I used part whole wheat flour and part organic white flour. I reduced the quantity of brown sugar to 3/4 cup, used walnut oil as I had no rice oil, cut half the salt and added 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. This was a truly delicious cake. I would have preferred the nuts were all ground into meal - perhaps she intended that. Everything went well in the oven. Very beautiful too! Thank you!
healthy? This bundt cake sounds delicious but I am not sure 2 cups of sugar is healthy. Maybe with a sugar substitute? Pros: chocolate! Cons: 2 cups of sugar
