Chocolate + Ginger Bundt Cake

Bundt cake actually refers to the tin in which is baked (rather than a specific recipe) that gives it it’s beautiful shape. I’ve taken my mum’s famous chocolate cake recipe and swapped out some of the ingredients for healthier options. It’s just as delicious, and the addition of ginger warms the soul for the perfect winter cake.
