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
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).
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:
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!
