Some recipes tell stories.
When I inherited this recipe many years ago on an old file card it was titled, Jean’s Chocolate Bundt Cake. I don’t know who Jean is but I sure do love her cake. Her recipe quickly became a family favorite. It’s decadent and rich- just right with a glass of cold milk. It’s hard to believe the recipe only has six ingredients and is super simple to make.
I’ve baked this cake for countless family gatherings and celebrations- birthdays, graduation parties, and Christmas dinners. Every now and then, I make it just because.
It was on one of those just because days that Jean’s Chocolate Bundt Cake got its new name. It was a beautiful blue sky day so I decided to bake a cake. The cake sat on the kitchen counter cooling when son #2 came in from his school day. He tossed his backpack on the table, grinned and said, “Why did you make a cake?” I answered, “Just because.”
“Well, this is the best day ever then!” he declared. Voila! Jean’s Chocolate Bundt Cake was christened the Best Day Ever Cake.
Recipe Note: A quality Bundt pan like this heavyweight, non-stick “Perfect Results” pan is a must!
