Marbled Chocolate Coffee Bundt Cake

Chocolate Coffee Marbled Bundt Cake
Over the weekend I got to do a little cooking demo at my local Williams Sonoma store! You may remember this Icebox Tiramisu I posted on the blog last summer. I partnered with a local cold brew coffee called Icebox, and I got to work with them again for this demo!

What I love about Icebox, besides the fact that they’re local, is that you can either buy it in ready-to-drink bottles, or buy it in concentrate form. So you measure out some of the concentrate and mix it with water, milk, or whatever you like!

The concentrate is perfect for baking because the flavor really comes through in the finished product without having to use a ton of it. If you used regularly brewed coffee in a cake, for example, you’d have to use a lot of it in order to actually taste it. Or brew very strong coffee. Or just grab some Icebox and pour it right in.

Chocolate Coffee Marbled Bundt Cake
For this demo, I decided to go with a marbled bundt cake so I could combine two of my fave flavors, chocolate and coffee. Most of the comments from people who tasted the cake were that it was really moist and the coffee glaze (again, using straight up coffee concentrate) was really good! How could coffee glaze not be good though, you know? 😉

I also made some chocolate chip coffee Madeleines, and I’ll be posting the recipe for those tomorrow! So for now, here’s the recipe for the bundt cake. Thanks so much to Williams Sonoma, Icebox Coffee, and everyone who came out for the demo on a hot and steamy Saturday afternoon!

*Icebox Coffee is available at some Whole Foods stores in the Southeast, and is also available online!*
