Sour Cream Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe Toppings

  • This sour cream chocolate bundt cake is so moist that you really don’t need frosting, but here are some serving suggestions:
    • Dust the entire cake with powdered sugar, and then dust each serving with a little more. The powdered sugar falls on the plate and makes for a very pretty presentation.
    • Make a powdered sugar glaze by combining one cup of powdered sugar with two to three tablespoons of milk. The glaze should pour neatly over the cake, but it should not be runny. Gently drizzle it over the entire cake making sure the glaze runs down both sides.
    • Serve this sour cream chocolate bundt cake with ice cream, whipped cream, or Cool Whip.
