#18 Grammy Cake

Based on the name of this cake, I thought it would have a graham cracker flavor to it, crushed graham cracker pieces on top, or something of that nature. Turns out it is the recipe of Julia’s Grammy, a chocolate bundt cake that she would always make, and even ship across the country to relatives. I have made a few chocolate bundt cakes, but this one was particularly fantastic. It was very moist and perfectly dense which made it irresistible. My husband Ian very much enjoyed this one, since it was chocolate. 🙂

At community group we went out to a pizza place for a change and I wasn’t sure if I should bring cake but I found out it was someone’s birthday that was gonna be there so of course I had to bring this grammy cake along with some candles.

She says you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar or serve it warm with a warm chocolate ganache glaze over it. When an option, chocolate ganache is always a good idea, so I obviously chose the latter option.

At the pizza place, ready to be devoured.

I will definitely be making this cake again in the future. It was another one of those that I had to make sure and save some leftovers to be enjoyed again, a second time with ice cream. 🙂 And it was so easy, it could be whipped up in a flash!
