Recipe: Quadruple Chocolate Bundt Cake
Summary: Rich, deeply flavored, decadent speed-scratch Chocolate Bundt Cake. It’s a perfect dessert!
- 1 (16.5-ounce) Duncan Hines Devil’s Food cake mix (or your favorite brand)
- 1 (3.9-ounce) package chocolate fudge instant pudding mix (the small box)
- 1 cup buttermilk (I used 1 cup water and 4 tablespoons King Arthur Flour Dried Buttermilk Powder)
- 1/3 cup light-flavored olive oil (or use vegetable oil)
- 1/2 cup Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli Premium Baking Chips with 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate)
- 3/4-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon half and half
- 2 tablespoons butter
Optional White Chocolate Finishing Drizzle
- ¼ cup white chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon half and half
- Heat oven to 325 degrees. Mist a non-stick 12-cup capacity Bundt cake pan with a flour-and-oil baking spray (such as Baker’s Joy) and set aside.
- In electric mixer bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, buttermilk, oil, syrup and eggs. Beat on low speed to blend, and then beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes. By hand, gently stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake for 60 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cake cool in pan for 20 minutes. Run a thin knife around the inside top edge to loosen it from the pan, and then invert cake onto a cooling rack.
- When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar for a simple garnish, or drizzle with Chocolate Glaze.
- To make Chocolate Glaze: Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook on low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring to combine. Drizzle and drip or spread the glaze over the cake. Allow to sit out, uncovered, until glaze is cool and set up.
- To make White Chocolate Drizzle: To make it look extra special, drizzle melted white chocolate over the dark chocolate glaze, which adds a professional-looking touch. Simply melt 1/4 cup white chocolate baking chips and 1 teaspoon half and half (45 seconds at 1100 watts in the microwave). For a quick and easy way to drizzle the glaze, put the melted white chocolate in a plastic bag (like a sandwich bag) and snip off a tiny corner. Then squeeze the bag gently to drizzle the chocolate
