Chocolate-Kissed Bundt Cake (Makes 20 servings)

If you like to bake special occasion cakes, this mouth-watering cake would be the perfect suggestion for Valentine’s Day. Touched with a swirl of chocolate, it is lovely when dusted with a light coating of Confectioners’ sugar.

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 and 3/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Confectioners’ sugar

1. In large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed of an electric mixer until very light and fluffy. (For best results beat this mixture 5-7 minutes)

2. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

3. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; add alternately to creamed mixture with milk and vanilla, starting and ending with dry ingredients.

4. Remove 1/4 of the batter to small bowl; stir in chocolate syrup and soda.

5. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan. Pour chocolate batter into prepared pan. Pour remaining white batter on top of chocolate batter.

6. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 55-60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean.

7. Cool cake in pan 10-15 minutes; turn out on wire rack to cool completely.

8. Sift confectioners’ sugar over top of cake just before serving.
