Nutty chocolate bundt cake with white chocolate glaze

The chocolate, nut-abundant bundt cake made of rye and oat flours. Its texture is a bit crumbly (due to oat flour), moist and with lots of crunchy nut bits:) Was made for my friend who had a birthday in the very end of december:)

In the recipe can be used plain flour instead of rye and oat. Add nuts of your choice, and spice if desirable. I didn’t add spice because of orange zest and peel, to accentuate the orange flavor. Happy baking!:)


Cake batter
1/2 (125 ml) cup vegetable oil (grapeseed/olive/sunflower/corn)
1 cup (250 ml) sour cream
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (125 ml) chicory (1 tsp for 1/2 cup of water) or brewed coffee
1 cup (225 g) sugar
pinch of salt
1 tbsp orange zest
1/2 cup (50 g) dark cocoa powder
1 cup rye flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1 tbsp corn starch
1 tsp baking soda
squeeze of lemon
1/3 cup (50 g) candied orange peel (mixed peel)
1 cup toasted walnuts (120 g), chopped
1 cup toasted hazelnuts (120 g), chopped
The topping
100 g white chocolate
handful of halved hazelnuts


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and dust with cocoa powder Ø23 cm bundt pan.

Combine the oil, sour cream, eggs, chicory, sugar and salt. Sift the spice, oat, rye flours, corn starch and cocoa powder. Whisk the dry ingredients. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, add baking soda with lemon juice and orange zest. Mix everything until smooth. Stir in chopped nuts and candied orange peel. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for about 50 minutes until fragrant and the toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean or with a few crumbs. Leave in the half-open oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan completely (approx 2 hours).

To make the topping, melt the white chocolate. Spread onto the cooled cake. Decorated with hazelnuts or whatever you like. Slice and serve!:)

Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the inside of the cake. Found only this photo on instagram, along with glazed gingerbread:)

  1. Yummy! I’ll give this recipe a try soon. I love chocolate and orange together, one of my favorite combinations! I’m not a fan of corn starch, can I leave it out from the recipe?

      Thanks a lot!🙂 Starch is optional, you can skip it (I added it to avoid possible over-crumbliness that oat flour can bring). Please let me know how it turned out:)
