i have been searching for a chocolate bundt cake recipe with a fudge filling, but not the traditional Tunnel of Fudge recipe, which has nuts in it. Everything I've read says the nuts are essential in forming that fudgey center. I did find one recipe that uses pudding as the filling, but the poster said the filling sinks to the bottom. I'd rather it stay in the center. Anyone have a recipe for me? Thanks!
What? Seriously? I doubt it has anything to do with the nuts. I just watched an episode of Cook's Country where they baked this cake. If I remember correctly the confectioner's sugar mixture is what makes it fudgey.
You can probably find that video online but you have to sign up for a trial subscription which is no big deal.
I can't imagine that nuts have anything to do with the fudgey nature of the cake. The original Tunnel of Fudge cake recipe calls for an ingredient that is no longer made: I'm thinking it was a frosting powder? I hear the recipe has been revamped so it can be made without that ingredient.
I second the idea of going to America's test kitchen and signing up for the trial membership.
