EASY & DELICIOUS Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

Since I have started sharing a few of my favorite recipes--I realized that I HAD to share this one my good friend Janae' gave me.  It is my TRUSTY STAND-BY dessert whenever I need to whip up something quickly (And I always make sure to have these ingredients on hand).  The best part is that it is not only QUICK AND EASY--but it is also DELICIOUS!

So here it is:

Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

1 Devils Food Cake Mix
1 small package of instant Chocolate Pudding
1 c Chocolate Chips
1 1/4 c water
1/4 c oil
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together.  Spoon batter into greased bundt pan.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 mins (or until the top springs back when pressed).
Cool for 10 mins in the pan--then flip it out onto platter.
Garnish and decorate as desired.  It looks nice with just a dusting of powdered sugar--or drizzled with chocolate sauce--(and an easy chocolate sauce is just a cup of chocolate chips heated with a 1/2 milk and whisked until smooth--yummy).

Here we go with some pictures for ya:

These are the KEY ingredients:

I like to add LOTS of Chocolate Chips
(even more than the recipe calls for--cause I just LOVE chocolate). 

Here it is ready to go into my trusty bundt pan that I bought at a thrift store for $0.99! 
I LOVE that thing!
(And am I the only one who can never say BUNDT the same way after watching "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"?)

All Baked up and cooling:

Tipped out and ready for some topping:

And here is one of my favorite ways to top a cake.  I got this recipe out of a Kraft Magazine--and I LOVE IT.  It produces the kind of fudge like frosting that you often will get on restaurant chocolate cakes.  The best part is--it is WAY easier than messing around with powdered sugar and butter and all of that for a regular frosting.

So with no further ado--here it is:

Fudge Frosting
1 tub whipped topping
1- 2 cups of chocolate chips

Place the chips in the bottom of a microwavable bowl.  Plunk out the frozen topping on top of the chips.  Microwave on high for 1 1/2 mins.  Stir until smooth.  You can then pour it over your cake or wait a few minutes till it has thickened and then spread it over your cake.  Either way it is EASY and DELICIOUS.

Here are the pictures:

I was just doing a half batch as I wasn't doing a layered cake.

Microwave it and it will look like this:

Stir it up and it will look like this:

Spread it over the cake and add a few sliced almonds and it will look like this:

NOTE: I wanted to pour the frosting over the bundt cake--but I waited a little too long and it started to thicken--so then I ended up spreading it instead.  So this cake is a little more gloppy looking than I would have liked--but you get the idea.  And now you have the recipe. 

So go make some cake!


  1. how did I not know about that frosting? What else are you holding out on me? Can't wait to find out I love reading your blog!

  2. Mmm...looks delicious. I want to make this.

  3. In my house we always called this recipie
    "DEATH by CHOCOLATE". It tastes just sinful Never tried it in a bundt pan though. I will have to try that next time, it looks awsome.

  4. I made this oh so wonderful cake last night to celebrate the end of the first week of school-oh my goodness! This was the most delicious cake I have EVER made, and my family agreed that it will be, like yours, our "go-to" cake. We chose the fudgy icing-excellent pick. Swoon to the power of 100! Tastes upscale....costs retail!! AWWWW YEAH!
