Chocolate Guinness Bundt with Yogurt Glaze #CakeSliceBakers

This month we were really wanting a chocolate cake, and the Cake Slice Bakers' book The New Way to Cake delivered a great one.  It's an easy chocolate cake recipe that uses plain yogurt and Guinness Stout to enhance and deepen the chocolate flavor.

The cake is topped with a glaze made from plain yogurt and powdered sugar.  I added some milk to try to thin it out, but finally just spread the topping like icing as I was worried if I added too much milk, I would loose the tanginess of the yougrt.

The cake was very moist and full of flavor. Everyone in my family loved it both with and without the icing.

Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is The New Way To Cake by Benjamina Ebuehi. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes! Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details. The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.
It is a new year and a new book - The New Way To Cake - and our choices for March 2020 were ~
