How to Make Blood Orange Bundt Cake


  1. For the cake
    Preheat oven 325 degrees
    Spray a bundt pan well and dust with a little cocoa powder.
  2. Squeeze the oranges to get 1 cup juice. Heat the coffee, orange juice, triple sec, vanilla and butter together. Cook until butter is melted. Whisk in the cocoa powder and mix well about 1 minute. Stir in both sugars. Let cool
  3. whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and add a small amount of chocolate mixture to temper the eggs then add to the rest of the chocolate mixture.
  4. Mix the chocolate mixture into the flour mixture. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake in oven for about 40 to 50 minutes. Let it cool.
  5. To make the syrup. Slice the two oranges thinly. Place the orange slice in a pan with the water. Simmer 20 minutes. Remove oranges slices and discard. Add the sugar and let it cool.
  6. Loosen the cake from the pan with a sharp knife. Tip it upside down and release the cake from the pan. Pour the warm syrup slowly over the bottom of the cake letting it soak into the cake. Turn over and place on a serving plate.
