  • 3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 c mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c unsulphured molasses
  • 1 c vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 1/4 c unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 c boiling water
  • 2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2/3 c powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp unsulphured molasses
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp hot water


  1. Grease well and generously flour the bundt pan. Set aside.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients ( flour, cocoa, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt ). Add chocolate chips and stir.
  4. In a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, beat together molasses, oil, eggs, milk, butter and vanilla. Mix until all combined and smooth.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Add the boiling water and fold in until all combined.
  6. Pour the batter into prepared pan. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Immediately flip the cake onto a cake plate. Place the plate over the bundt and turn out. Be careful! The bundt pan is hot!
  8. For the glaze: melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Take off the heat when only few butter bits are left. Whisk smooth. Let cool to room temperature. Sift powdered sugar over the melted chocolate and whisk in. Add molasses and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Add water to get the glaze to a drizzling consistency. Pour over cooled cake.


Be sure to grease and flour the bundt well to prevent the cake to sticking to it.

    The stars must be aligning! I was up in the storage room yesterday when my hand shot out and grabbed my old – unused bundt pan..for no reason. I think it knew this cake was waiting for me.

    It Looks FAB!

  2. says

    Anna what a gorgeous cake! I made a choc/molasses bundt a couple weeks ago and am a big fan of yours. And the cake stand..SUCH beautiful pieces. Thanks for hosting a GREAT! giveaway!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      I know you are a big chocolate molasses combo fan so I know you would love this cake! Wish we could do a swap of our cakes. :) Thanks, Averie!

  3. A Baker's House @ www.abakersh says

    What a beautiful cake! I found you through foodgawker can’t wait to read more on your site.

  4. CrunchyCreamySw says

    lol I wish! But the molasses chocolate combination is quite satisfying and a good way to relax after a busy day ( shopping, taxes, etc. … ). :)

  5. says

    This cake looks amazing! But how could it not? Chocolate, sugar, butter and molasses…my favorite things!

    I just recently came across your blog…I LOVE it! I can’t wait to read through more of your recipes!

  6. Jennie @themessybakerblog says

    Wow, this is one beautiful cake. I love bundt cakes! You should join the #bundtamonth group host by Bakerstreet and Cake Duchess every month; it’s so fun. So, I found this wonderful product to help assist the cake out of the pan. It’s called Bak-Klene ZT spray. It’s amazing! I purchased it from Williams-sonoma. Best 10 bucks I ever spent.

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      I am on it, Jennie! Thank you so much for the tip! PS: I have been following the group for a while now. I would love to join. Always beautiful bundt cakes!

  7. says

    Oh wow, that cake looks soooo amazing. I’ve been on a big chocolate kick lately, so I so wish I had a slice in front of me right now. And what a gorgeous cake stand!

  8. says

    Bundt cakes…I’ve been there : ) They are always worth it though, and this chocolate molassas one looks scrumptious!
    Love the cake stand! Wonderful giveaway, Anna!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      It’s good to know I am not the only one with this problem then :) Thank you so much, Danielle!

  9. says

    i know EXACLTLY what you mean about bundt cakes and their removal from the pan! I’ve had one too many mishaps happen in that step. But wow, i am SO glad this bad boy turned out – all that chocolate! And I just realized last month how very well chocolate and molasses go together! this reminds me of the chocolate gingerbread bundt cake I made a few weeks ago. SO good!!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      I know, right? Chocolate and molasses are perfect together! Thanks, Sally! Off to check out your amazing sounding cake!!!

  10. says

    I love bundt cakes! (Unfortunately they love their pan more than they love me…they’re always clinging to it like koala bears.) This looks scrumptious!!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      I always have the same problem – just this time it came out in one piece! :) Thank you so much, Valerie!

  11. says

    Wow, what a cake Anna! I love molasses so I know I’d love this. On the ingredients, it says unsulphured molasses, what’s the difference? Is it the black liquid molasses? I normally substitute for black treacle which seems very, very close (according to Wikipedia).

    And a great giveaway too. I have a friend in the US that’s willing to ship over anything I *may* win so I’m assuming it’s OK to enter too? I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed since I need more cake stands and those are amazing too.

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      Hi Lisa! I always bake with unsulphured molasses instead blackstrap. The blackstrap kind is too bitter. So if the black treacle is the same as unsulphured – go with it! Thanks for entering the giveaway!

  12. says

    Woah… this cake is my kind of cake… triple chocolate! I love a good drizzle on a bundt cake too… and with molasses. I have never worked with molasses before, but I recently bought some so now I have a reason to use it. :) PS… fantastic giveaway. :)

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      Oh oh oh! You have to make this cake then! You will love it! I just know it! Thank you, Ramona!

  13. Nancy says

    Anna, you and I are on the same holiday baking wavelength – first those delicious cranberry bliss bars, now chocolate molasses cakes! Your bundt looks amazeballs. So dark, decadent and moist. And that gorgeous, thick chocolate molasses glaze takes it over the top!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      Because great minds and bakers minds think alike!! :) The glaze is addicting! Just sayin’ :) Thanks, Nancy!!
