Chocolate Cake

  • 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1 5.9 ounce package instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips plus more for top of cake, if desired

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp corn syrup


Chocolate Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and thoroughly spray bundt pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl add cake mix, pudding, sour cream, vegetable oil, eggs and water. Mix together, until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased bundt pan.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until top is springy.
  • Let the cake cool completely in the bundt pan. Usually 1-1/2 hours.
  • Flip the flat side of the bundt cake down on a plate and make the glaze.

Chocolate Glaze

  • Add chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup to a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 30 seconds and using a whisk, stir.
  • Microwave for 15 more seconds and whisk again. The bowl will be getting warm so as you whisk the chocolate chips and butter will continue to melt.
  • Whisk until completely combined or add to microwave for 10 more seconds, if needed. 
  • DO NOT overheat the chocolate or it will get grainy!
  • Spread warm glaze over the top of cake, letting it drizzle down the sides.
  • Top with any chocolate-y thing your heart desires.
