Chocolate Mocha Bundt Cake Ingredients

This dessert is made in three stages, so you have the cake itself, the filling and the ganache. The cake calls for the usual suspects, namely cake flour, sugar, eggs, butter, salt, and baking soda. You’ll also need vanilla, cocoa, sour cream, and hot coffee.

The cheesecake layer is made with cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. The ganache topping has semisweet chocolate and heavy cream as the only ingredients.

I like to use dark cocoa powder for an extra-rich flavour. Natural or Dutch-process cocoa would also be fine. As for the cream cheese, use room temperature, block-style cream cheese, not the spreadable or whipped kind.

I’m sure you already have all or most of those ingredients if you’re a keen home baker. There’s always something special about Bundt cakes and there are so many kinds to choose from. These mini strawberry Bundt cakes are also amazing, so if you don’t already have a Bundt pan and a set of mini Bundt pans, they’re a great investment!

How to Make a Cheesecake Filled Chocolate Cake

First of all, beat the butter then mix in the eggs and sugar until you have a fluffy, light mixture. Now beat in the cocoa, vanilla, salt, and baking soda. Mix in half the flour then half the sour cream, and repeat with the remainder. Mix in the coffee then set this batter aside while you prepare the cheesecake filling.

Beat the cream cheese with vanilla and sugar and then gradually beat in the eggs. Transfer half of the prepared cake batter into a greased Bundt pan and then add the cheesecake filling on top. Spoon the remaining cake batter on top then cook for about an hour or until done. Let the chocolate mocha Bundt cake with cream cheese swirl cool in the pan and then on a cooling rack.

For the ganache, heat the cream and pour it over the chocolate. Allow it time to melt then stir until smooth. Pour it over the cake when it’s completely cool and then let the stuffed Bundt cake chill for an hour in the refrigerator.

How to Serve this Cheesecake Filled Chocolate Cake

Although this stuffed Bundt cake is delicious just as it is, some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream also makes a nice pairing. You might even like to add some fresh berries for another contrasting flavour.

Cream Cheese Swirl Bundt Cake FAQs

Can you make this dessert ahead?

You will need to plan this chocolate mocha Bundt cake ahead since it has to cool before you can add the ganache and then that takes a while to set too. Make it a day in advance if you like and just keep it refrigerated until serving. Leftovers will keep for several days in an airtight container in the refrigerator but it will start to dry out after that.

Can you use something else apart from coffee?

Some people don’t like coffee-flavoured desserts but do like coffee and of course some don’t like it in any form! You can use hot water instead of hot coffee if you prefer. The coffee doesn’t really give a coffee flavour to the cake. Instead it helps bring out the chocolate flavour, but hot water is great as a substitution.
