German Chocolate Bundt Cake

Streusel
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into little pieces
1/3 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1/3 cup sliced pecans

Cake

Cooking spray
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 ounce German baking chocolate
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 egg whites
1 cup low-fat buttermilk

Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
4 teaspoons fat-free milk

For Streusel: In food processor, integrate flour, brown sugar and butter and pulse till mixture looks like coarse meal. Add coconut and pecans and pulse to integrate. Don’t overmix.

For Cake: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar; set aside.

In another bowl integrate flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. With your stand mixer, beat 11/2 cups sugar and butter at medium speed till well-blended, about 5 minutes. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternating with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mix.

For Glaze: Integrate powdered sugar and butter in bowl. Include milk, and stir with whisk. Drizzle over cake.

The key piece of equipment for this recipe is a good bundt pan.  There are quite a few models but most of them have the same non-stick lining that works well for removing the cake from the pan.  Make sure that the pan you are using hasn’t warped from over-use.  Some of the lighter weight models have had problems with warping over time.
