  1. Hector I would be SO thankful if you would post or email and tell me how to convert RLB’s chocolate Pavarotti to a bundt cake. How much baking powder would I use? Huge thanks if you can help – Lauren

  2. Hi Lauren, the original recipe is for 9×2″ round = 8.8 cups. My bundt pan is 10 cups which would be 1.136x. I multiplied every ingredient by 1.136 except the baking soda. I used 3 3/4 tsp of baking soda.

    • THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH! I’m going to try it this week. The crumb on your bundt cake looks just fabulous. Thank you again Hector.

    • I have the scale RLB recommended and can do the same (though I don’t always). I just scored a nordicware bundt pan for 1/2 price; it’s one I’ve been coveting for a while. (Though I have too many already!) Not sure the Pavarotti is the cake for it, though; might be better to use a less intricate design. I’ll bet everyone was completely charmed by all your tiny cakes! Thanks again for all your help.
