Turkish Coffee Bundt Cake

Chocolate Turkish Coffee Cake

I was inspired to make a Cappuccino flavored cake, but when I only had Turkish coffee I realized that this flavor profile with cardamom and cinnamon was even better. If you want it to look more like a cappuccino you could make the glaze with white chocolate, but I like the deep richness of the dark chocolate glaze.

I tried making it with whole wheat flour and it worked well, but was not as light and fluffy, so the choice is yours.

Sift cocoa mixture over top; let stand until glaze is set.
