I’m back into the swing of things at school with the kids into their second week of school.  The first couple of weeks are always hectic. I’m not a classroom teacher so I don’t have a set schedule until a few weeks into the school year.  That means last week I spent time giving my students placement tests and this week I’ve been working on putting them into groups.  I’ve also had to do double duty this week because my instructional assistant in having some fun in the sun in Disney World so I’m working with all of our kids.

Bundt Cake made with espresso and caramel then drizzled with caramel icing.

So in an effort to keep myself awake and energized throughout the day I made a sweet treat to bring in for the staff.  Plus I wanted to bake my Bundt cake for this month’s #BundtAMonth which has a theme of baking a fancy Bundt cake for the #BundtAMonth club’s anniversary!  I wasn’t quite sure what a fancy Bundt cake was until I saw a picture of the espresso cake with caramel and espresso glaze.  This cake is definitely a show stopper.

The cake has a subtle espresso taste which tastes amazing with the chocolate chips and cinnamon chips baked into it.  Then a caramel drizzle and an espresso drizzle finish off this cake in a beautiful design.  It was rich and tasted of coffee and caramel.  The perfect combination to keep me going during this hectic week.  I enjoyed it with my coffee and then may have had another slice as dessert after my lunch.  Yum!

  1. Hi HeziD
    This Bundt cake looks delish. I would like to make it in a few days for a party that’s coming up. You have not given the size of the Bundt pan (which other authors do). I am going out to buy a Bundt pan as well as other ingredients I do not have at home. I do not know how quickly you can reply but sooner rather than later would be so appreciated.
    I would be so happy to write, after the party, and let everybody know what a great success your recipe is.

    1. Hello, I hope this gets to you in time as this Bundt cake is delicious! These are the dimensions fromt he website: 10 1/2″ diam., 4 1/2″ high.
      10- to 15-cup capacity.

  2. I tried to make this cake twice and it fell both times. Comparing it to other recipes it seems to require another egg and possibly another 1/2 cup brown sugar…can anyone else who made it please help?

    1. I’m sorry it has fallen for you both times! Adding an extra egg certainly wouldn’t hurt it at all. I’ve used this same recipe several times and it has worked for me. Are you at a higher elevation by any chance?

  3. G’day and WOW heather, love the look of your Bundt cake, true!
    Remind me of fireworks or confetti on Fourth of July…(a compliment 🙂 ) too!
    Cheers! Joanne

  4. Oh, my goodness, Heather, what’s not to love about this fancy blend of America’s favorite coffee, chocolate and caramel. Keeper recipe!

    Your work sounds similar to my niece who is a school psychologist /administrator for special needs children…Is that your area? At any rate, you and teachers all over the world deserve lots of kudos and cake!

  5. Caramel lattes are one of my favorites so this cake sounds so delicious to me. I love your drizzle on top as it reminds me of fireworks, and therefore a celebration. I bet this is definitely an explosion of flavor in the first bite.
