How to make it

  • Heavily grease a 12 cup Bundt pan; set aside. Preheat oven
  • to 350 degrees.
  • To make the cake, place chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water or in a microwave; stir until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in chocolate, vanilla and brandy or water. In a small bowl stir together flour, salt and baking soda. With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour in fourths and buttermilk in thirds,
  • beginning and ending with the flour.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake in center of oven for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove to rack and cool 10 minutes. Invert to remove from pan and cool 20
  • minutes before frosting.
  • Meanwhile make Chocolate Glaze, if desired, by melting
  • chocolate and butter in a small saucepan or microwave.
  • Remove from heat and stir in corn syrup and water. If too
  • thin, let sit until it thickens slightly. Pour warm glaze
  • over top of cake, allowing it to drop down the sides. If
  • the glaze is too thick, reheat slightly. Let cake sit
  • several hours before serving.
