Chocolate Cinnamon Bundt Cake

I was in charge of bringing dessert for a New Years Lunch with my family. I knew I was going to make a bundt cake because my boyfriend's mom got me the most beautiful bundt pan from Williams Sonoma for Christmas!

After flipping through some recipes I decided on a cinnamon chocolate bundt cake that I saw on Lick the Bowl Good. The cakes smelled amazing while it was cooking and it was so moist and chocolately I could have eaten the whole thing!

Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt Cake from Food Librarian via Lick the Bowl Good

1/2 cup butter

1 cup water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

5 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 cups flour

2 cups sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs slightly beaten

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large bundt pan with cooking spray. Make sure to cover all the crevices.

Put butter, oil, cocoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. Then add, the buttermilk and baking soda. Mix together the eggs, cinnamon and vanilla in a small bowl and add to the batter.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes. (Mine took closer to 38 mins. Usually my oven cooks things pretty quick but this just took a lot longer than I thought it would)

Allow to cool in pan completely!

I just sprinkled the top with powdered sugar.
