I hosted book group last week and made this delicious cake for our treat.  (I started slicing pieces and then remembered that I hadn’t taken a picture yet so that’s why you’re only seeing half the cake.)

cake

2 sticks butter, softened

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

4 eggs plus 2 egg yolks

1/2 cup sour cream

2 3/4 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk

cinnamon sugar topping

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter, melted

chocolate sauce

1 1/4 cups half and half

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

pinch of salt

4 – 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

1  For the cake, preheat oven to 350.  Spray 10 cup Bundt pan with cooking spray for baking.

2  Beat butter, sugar and vanilla on medium until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.  Beat in eggs, one at a time, then egg yolks.  Beat in sour cream until combined.  Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl.  Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with milk.  Beat until combined.

3  Pour into prepared pan, smoothing top and tapping pan on counter a couple of times to release any bubbles.  Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.  Let cool in pan 10 minutes then invert onto serving platter.

4  For the topping, combine sugar and cinnamon.  Working in sections, brush cake with melted butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, pressing to adhere.

5  For the chocolate sauce, combine half and half, brown sugar, cocoa, vanilla and salt in small saucepan.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat.  Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves, 2 – 4 minutes.  Remove from heat and add chocolate.  Let stand 2 minutes, the stir until smooth.
