Today I’m sharing a great cake that comes from my lovely grandma. I’ve shared a few recipes from her and I’m sure I’ll share more. But for now, here is a yummy, chocolatey dense cake for your eating pleasure.

  • Prepare a bundt cake pan by greasing well with shortening and set aside.
  • Combine cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate and boiling water. Let it cool.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  • Combine brown sugar, butter and sour cream in a separate bowl and mix together.

  • Then add in each egg and mixing well each time.

For a little extra treat: Combine 2-3 cups of coconut and some sweetened condensed milk to moisten it. Put half the batter into the pan. Add the sweetened coconut into the middle. Cover with the rest of the batter.

I added a simple icing sugar and water glaze to go on top. Cause really… most things are better with icing!
