  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 240ml buttermilk
  • 220ml vegetable oil
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar

  • 2.4 litre bundt tin, well greased with butter and 2 tbsp plain flour shaken in the tin to line (we used the Nordicware vintage star bundt tin, available at Amazon); see tips

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. For the cheesecake filling, combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until smooth – be careful not to over-mix. Set aside.
  2. In a separate large bowl, mix the plain flour, caster sugar, bicarb, salt
    and cocoa powder. In a jug, whisk together the buttermilk, oil, eggs, vinegar, vanilla bean paste and food colouring. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix together quickly. Add a little extra food colouring, if needed.
  3. Pour a third of the cake mixture into the tin, then spoon the cheesecake mixture over the top, being careful to leave some cake batter at the edges of the tin. Pour the remaining cake batter carefully over the top and transfer to the oven to bake for 45-55 minutes until a skewer pushed into centre of the cake comes out clean or with dry crumbs. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack and cool.
  4. For the icing, mix together all the ingredients until smooth, then drizzle over the cooled cake. Serve in slices.

delicious. tips

  1. Make sure every bit of tin is covered with butter and flour when you’re lining it or the cake will stick and won’t turn out properly. Melted butter and a pastry brush are useful.

  2. The decorated bundt will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
