Chocolate Bundt Cake
A cake with a soft & aromatic texture, with three chocolates, dark, milk & white, with strong espresso coffee, cocoa, and buttermilk. It is delicious! But the culmination of all is the white chocolate sauce with hazelnuts and cranberries, which covers the outside and gives it other than unequaled flavor and a beautiful appearance.
Festive, good-looking, and full of chocolates for chocoholics!
