Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8-12 slices
  • 1 ½ cups (12 oz) butter
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • ½ cup (1 ½ oz) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ cups boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 ¼ cups (15.75 oz) granulated sugar
  • 3 cups (12.5 oz) gluten free flour (+2 teaspoons xanthan gum if your blend doesn’t contain it optional)
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cups sour cream
  • 6 oz rough chopped chocolate
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 oz finely chopped dark chocolate
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º and butter and flour a 12-15 oz bundt cake pan.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter with rosemary. Remove from heat and steep for at least 10 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, water, salt, and vanilla. Strain rosemary butter into the bowl and mix.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, and baking soda. Add cocoa mixture in two additions, stirring to completely combine each time. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring until each one is fully incorporated. Stir in sour cream and chopped chocolate. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes (or until a knife inserted into the middle of the cake comes back clean).
  5. Cool for 20 minutes before inverting onto a rack- then cool completely before glazing and serving.
Make the glaze:
  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add vanilla and salt- whisking to combine. Remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate—stirring constantly until the chocolate is fully melted.
  2. Drizzle glaze over the cake and top with rosemary sprigs.
