chocoholic cake



Hi, my name is Jessica....and I am a chocoholic. I am addicted to chocolate. Phew, it feels good to have that off my chest. I must also admit that I make little to no effort to overcome it. In fact, I am always on the lookout for recipes that might feed this addiction for me. Luckily, my mom knows this about me and was kind enough to be my enabler and pass a wonderful recipe on. Chocoholic cake. Yes, that is really the name. It can't get any sweeter than this.

Chocoholic Cake
1 chocolate cake mix
1 small package (3.4 oz) chocolate pudding
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
4 eggs
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients except nuts and chips on low until well blended. Beat 2 minutes on high. Add nuts and chips. Pour into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes. Cool cake 10 minutes then turn out onto platter. Glaze with the following recipe.

Glaze:
1 bar (2 oz) semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 T. butter
2 T. water
1 tsp. vanilla
Melt chocolate and butter in microwave 30 seconds at a time until smooth and melted. Cool. Add powdered sugar alternately with water. Add vanilla. Pour over cake.

Enjoy every heavenly bite!

This is the only cake I make. It's sinful eating each and every piece of it. I found the recipe in an old Taste of Home cookbook I got for a wedding gift! Glad I am not the only one benefiting.

-Sydney- said...

Oh, I love this recipe! I couldn't make it while we were in the UAE because you can't find instant pudding there. . .go figure. What I love most is how easy this cake is, but it doesn't taste at all like it came from a box.

Kelly O. said...

I just made this cake tonight after seeing it on kim's blog--delish!

My 6 year-old daughter just saw it and said, "Ouohhhh! Giant doughnut! That looks yummy!" I happen to agree! My husband's birthday is tomorrow! I wish he would let me make this for him. He wants cheesecake instead. (Still a good choice!!)

Can I use three 8" round cake pans instead of a bundt cake pan to bake the chocoholic cake? I can't find a recipe using round pans. Pls let me hear from someone asap. Thanks

Little Birdie Secrets said...

Hi Anonymous,

Jessica, our recipe expert is currently off at the moment so she can't get back to you asap so I will try to fill in as best as I can. I do believe that you can use the round pans, but you will have to adjust your baking time. When you do it, please watch your cake carefully and take it out when it is done rather when the recipe for a bundt says it is done. I hope this is helpful. Let us know how it turns out.

Corrine said...

I added about 1/4 cup Andes mints baking chips with the 2c chocolate chips and WOW! Just the righ thint of mint to go with that chocolate yumminess! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas & fun finds!

Hi I was wondering do you add the ingr. on the cake mix box or do I just use the ingr. listed.....

Little Birdie Secrets said...

You just use the dry cake mix and add the rest of ingredients from my recipe.
