• Chocolate Cheesecake Swirl Bundt Cake

    Posted on September 10, 2017 by in Desserts, Recipes

    Chocolate cake is already delicious but what about combining it with vanilla cheese cake? Hmm… the combination is divine… Several days ago, I have promised to bring a cake at the office. The options of what to prepare are always more then enough, but for this particular occasion I have been considering as much the flavour as the logistic transportation practical side. As a result, this delicious chocolate cheesecake swirl bundt cake has emerged delighting all the senses.

    Preparing the cake was easy and simple. Keeping it away from my family has been a real struggle and temptation, something to remember and avoid in the future whenever I can. Why did I not even consider to prepare two cakes instead of one? With the cake intact and graciously arriving at the office in one piece it made me happy to see the joy it brought to my colleagues and that even before noon not a single slice was left.
