Here’s the deal. I’ve made tons of cakes from scratch and THIS cake is much easier and even better in my opinion. Literally when people eat this they say, “THIS IS SO GOOD!”  So all my friends who say they can’t cook, you can do this! And it will make you the most popular lady in town.

This Sinfully Delicious and Easy Bundt Cake comes from my sister Shelly who is one of the best cooks I know. She has the talent of making everything beautiful and homey. I even bribed Shelly to help decorate my house thousands of miles away. Her best friend Denise is equally talented. Between the two of them, they have 12 kids. They happen to live in the same cul-de-sac and their kids even ended up marrying each other. Isn’t that two best friends’ dream?

The batter will be thick. Spoon it into the well greased Bundt pan and bake until it looks like this. The beauty of this cake is its incredibly moist center. Yep. I said moist. Moist, moist, moist, moist. Why does that word freak people out?

After the cake has cooled, pour the chocolate glaze on top.

And if you want to get extra fancy, sprinkle with some chocolate shavings. You can make them by taking a vegetable peeler to a bar of chocolate. chocolate-bundt-6a

To add some color and freshness, raspberries are great on this. Strawberries would be good too!

 

Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake
 
Ingredients
Cake:
  • 1 (15.25-oz) box Devil's Food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9-oz) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ½ cup canola oil (or vegetable)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Glaze:
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips (you can replace this with all semi-sweet chips)
  • 3 cups Cool Whip topping (see Note for substitution)
  • (optional) chocolate shavings and raspberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a Bundt pan well with non-stick spray.
  2. For the cake: In a large bowl, stir the cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, eggs, and sour cream until combined well. You can also do this with a mixer. Fold in the 1½ cups chocolate chips.
  3. Pour mixture into the Bundt pan and bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. My oven cooks fast and it was done after 50 minutes so make sure you start checking it then. Let cake cool 5-10 minutes in the pan and then invert on a plate. Cool completely.
  4. For the Glaze: In a microwave safe bowl, heat both chocolate chips and the Cool Whip for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. The mixture will be a little thin but will thicken a bit as it sets. If you like a thicker glaze add about ½ cup or more of powdered sugar and stir until smooth before glazing the cake.
  5. Pour over the cooled chocolate cake. Top with chocolate shavings and raspberries if desired. Top with additional whipped cream if you like.
Notes
The Cool Whip can be replaced with about 1 cup heavy cream.
