An easy and delicious chocolate bundt cake that is perfect to bring to a potluck, make for a coffee date, after school snack, or just because.
No story about how moist and delicious this simple cake is. Sorry. No long intro about how leftovers are the best with a cup of coffee or an afternoon snack. Nope. Not even an anecdote about how it’s the perfect easy recipe to make for potlucks.
I will tell you a few things, though.
Simple Chocolate Bundt Cake
I’ll tell you that this rich cake is made with mixes (plural). If you’re a solely from scratch baker, it’s ok if you pass on this recipe. (Or, you could give it a try and it might change your mind) 🙂 I prefer to bake from scratch, but I also don’t dismiss the convenience of utilizing mixes to make delicious things.
And besides that…I can’t be the only one who finds myself in this situation: Your mother’s love language is food and every year in the fall when baking items go on sale she stocks up and the result is that you have a pantry full of cake and brownie mixes along with all the flour and sugar and chocolate chips?
The original recipe for this cake has a chocolate drizzle over the top. Yummy for sure. But I found it easier to dump the chips right in the cake batter and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar. (If you want to make a ganache instead, it’s simple: 1 cup of cream and a bag of chocolate chips).
You could also make a cream cheese icing and turn this into your version of a Nothing Bundt Cake. (Do you have those near you? Divine.)
And if you’re looking to use up some eggs, this is a great recipe for that as well. It uses four!
My kids told me that this cake tastes like the huge chocolate muffins at Costco, so I tried baking the batter in my giant muffin tins. They were totally right…except these were richer! I still usually prefer to bake it in my bundt cake pan, because it looks so pretty!
Here’s the recipe:
