Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake

Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake | Cozycakes Cottage

Let’s just address something right off the bat.  This cake calls for a boxed mix.  There.  Done. 😉

Whenever I serve this cake or tote it to a BBQ at a friend’s house, I get a request for the recipe.  It has loads of chocolate flavor and is so moist thanks to the sour cream.

Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake
 
Chocolate and more chocolate. What more do you need?

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1 box Devil's Food cake mix (I only use Duncan Hines brand as it yields the best results for me)
  • 1 3.5 oz. box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup warm water (not boiling)
  • ¾ cup oil
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips OR a mix of milk and dark chocolate chips (I do a heaping cup!)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease or spray Bundt pan. I prefer Baker's Joy. Do not skip this step or your cake will likely stick to the pan.
  3. Mix cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl until well blended. You can use a stand mixer or hand mixer/blender.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Bake cake for 40 to 50 minutes. Check the cake with a toothpick at 40 minutes. If the toothpick doesn't come out clean, check every few minutes until done.
  6. Cool cake completely and then drizzle/spoon frosting over. Top with chocolate chips if you like!
  7. Frosting Recipe: Melt 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter in a bowl. Add ¼ cup milk, 5 tablespoons cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2-3 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until smooth and thickens slightly. Spoon over cooled cake.

  1. I needed a simple recipe like that when I see my grandkids. Thanks so much and missing you and the munchkin. She is so big now and so so cute. Hope to see you both soon.

    1. You’re so sweet. I hope like this easy recipe. And I miss you so much. I think of you all the time! Let’s grab lunch! xxx

  2. This was so moist and delicious! I just pulled this beautiful cake out of the oven. I put mini dark chocolate chips and toasted chopped pecans as well. I also piped little black cats between the chips and pecans. Perfect Halloween cake! Thanks so much for the recipe!
