Chocolate Bundt Cake

I discovered this recipe on several years ago. I think they call it the Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake. It quickly became my family's favorite chocolate cake. I add a simple chocolate glaze to mine, although it would be delicious plain, or with a dusting of powdered sugar. If you haven't already tried it... I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Chocolate Bundt Cake

1 (18.25 oz.) package dark chocolate cake mix

1 (3.0 oz.) package instant chocolate pudding mix

1 (16 oz.) container sour cream

3 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup coffee flavored liqueur

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I use mini)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 10 inch bundt pan. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, oil, and liqueur. Beat until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Spoon into pan. Bake 1 hour or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool 10 minutes in pan, then turn out on wire rack and cool completely.

Chocolate Glaze

3 Tbsp. unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar

2 Tbsp. water

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

2 oz. unsweetened chocolate baking bar

Melt chocolate and butter in heat proof bowl over low heat. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in powdered sugar with water. Add more water if needed to achieve desired consistency. Add vanilla, blend well. Drizzle over cake.

    I just went over to pick up my award, thank you so much! That was so sweet of you.

  6. Alice the cake is in the oven as I type this. Do you use unsweetened chocolate in the many oz? Maybe I will just dust it with powdered sugar. I have a feeling it wont be sticking around long.

  7. Now that chocolate cake sounds absolutely wonderful! I have to print that and give it a try.

  8. sorry kat, it's 2 oz. unsweeteded chocolate baking bar, but would also be good with just powdered sugar. Glad your cake turned out.
