Cake box recipes are so fun! I love them and I make a lot of them. My (Cake Box Recipe) S’mores Bundt cake is super easy to make. It tastes just as fantastic as it looks! It is a moist and fluffy cake topped to resemble an S’more. And you will love the simplicity of this recipe. I think the hardest part was making the ganache, and if you have ever made ganache, you know that’s a cinch. Basically, it is just equal parts of cream and chocolate, easy peasy. Your guests will seriously think you spent all day in the kitchen. And I wouldn’t tell them any differently, what they don’t know won’t hurt them right? 😉
My favorite part about this cake is using the kitchen torch. If you do not own one of these you need to! I bought mine at a kitchen store for about $12 and it was the best $12 I ever spent =P . There are so many cool recipes you can make when you own one of these. I have yet to make a creme brulee but it is next on the list. Not to mention I can have a toasted marshmallow anytime I want! haha
Tip – When putting on the marshmallow fluff, take spoonfuls and plop them all around the top of the cake, then use the back of the spoon to smooth it together. Let the cake sit for about 10 minutes and you will see the marshmallow fluff begin to run down the sides of the cake. It’s so easy to do and makes the cake look so elegant.
Pre Heat Oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, add all 7 ingredients and mix well. Pour or spoon (batter will be thick) batter into a greased and lightly floured bundt pan. Use a spatula to evenly smooth batter around bundt pan ( so it cooks evenly). Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for about 15-20 minutes then turn out onto a clean tea towel. Allow cake to finish cooling completely, pour chocolate ganache (recipe below) on cake, and sprinkle with crushed graham crackers. Place the ganache covered cake in the fridge and allow the ganache to set ( about an hour). Once ganache has set, take the cake out then spread with marshmallow fluff around the top of the cake. Let the cake sit for about 10 minutes or until the marshmallow fluff runs down the sides of the cake. Using a kitchen torch, torch the marshmallow fluff till golden brown.
Pour chocolate chips & Coffee granules into a heat -proof bowl and set aside. In a medium/small saucepan add heavy cream and butter. Heat on medium high until cream comes to a boil. As soon as it comes to a boil turn heat off and pour cream over chocolate and begin to whisk until you have ganache.
