Chocolate Bundt Cake with Mocha Glaze

Hello everyone!

How have you been? I can’t believe it has been 2 weeks already since I last posted! But I’m back with a delicious chocolate cake (anyone surprised?). It’s a pretty darn good cake! There is a lot of steps though, meaning there is a lot of dish-washing to do afterwards. But it’s so worth it! It’s my first bundt cake ever (I guess since I didn’t have a bundt cake pan!). And with a mocha glaze it’s just divine!
