- The first thing you have to do is preheat your oven to 180 °C or about 350 °F.
- Next, brush a 2.5-liter bundt cake pan with butter before dusting it with flour. For this recipe, we used the Swirl Donut Cake Mold Baking Pan from BakersLove. Set aside after.
- Time to start making the batter. Mix your baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Get another bowl and pour your milk and sour cream in it. Mix and then set aside.
- Put your vanilla, sugar, and butter in a third separate bowl and blend them together using an electric mixer. Then add your eggs one at a time and continue beating until the mixture gets a soft texture. Once it does, lower the speed and then slowly start folding in your dry ingredients. You can do this alternately with the milk and sour cream mixtures.
- Whisk the cocoa powder and canola oil in a another bowl before adding about 500ml of your cake batter. Mix well.
- Get your vanilla batter (the one that you did not mix with the cocoa powder) and pour it into your bundt baking pan. Make sure to spread the batter on the pan's sides to create the multicolored exterior layer of the marbled bundt cake.
- With the use of a spoon, pour your chocolate batter into the pan. Move the spoon in a circular motion to create chocolate swirls. These swirls are what will give the cake that marbled effect.
- Pop it in the oven for about 55 minutes. To check if the cake is ready, insert a toothpick at the very center and then pull it out. If the toothpick is dry, then your cake is made.
- Take it out of the pan and then flip it on a wire rack to cool completely.
- To make the ganache, all you have to do is place the chocolate in a bowl and set aside. Pour your corn syrup and cream in a saucepan or a microwave (whichever) you want, then bring them to a boil. Pour your cream-corn syrup mixture on the chocolate and let it melt.
- Once the chocolate has melted, stir it with a fork and cool for about 3 to 5 minutes. Pour it over your baked goodie, turning it into a bundt cake glaze.
- Serve and enjoy!
