We've got an out-of-this-world chocolate bundt cake recipe that is going to blow. your. mind. Not only that, it's made from a box cake! If you've never tried a doctored cake mix recipe before then today is your lucky day. Just try not to drool all over your screen, mkay?
CHOCOLATE BUNDT CAKE INGREDIENTS
We promise, this is one of the most simple recipes that you'll make! You can use any flavor and brand of boxed chocolate cake mix, they'll all turn out delicious. The same goes for the chocolate chips. If you have semisweet on hand, then use them! But if you have milk or dark chocolate, don't be afraid to use those as well (as long as the dark chocolate isn't too bitter).
If you've got leftover holiday candy, then chop those puppies up and throw them in here! Our favorite is to use one cup of chopped mini Cadbury eggs. YES. PLEASE. Experiment with it and see what your favorite chocolate is to use!
You can use a store-bought caramel sauce, but we much prefer to make our own! It is so simple and so darn good. The hardest part will be trying to not eat it all with a spoon. Good luck with that. ;)
HOW TO GREASE THE BUNDT PAN
There's nothing worse than spending the time, effort and money to make a bundt cake, only to try to take it out and have it stick to the pan! *Insert hysterical sobbing* We won't stand for it anymore! Use these few tips and you should see a major difference!
First, start with a quality non-stick bundt cake pan. Then, when you grease it, don't do it until after you've mixed your cake and it's ready to pour into the pan. This will keep it from all sliding down the sides to the bottom. When greasing it, you'll want to make sure that you get ALL of the cracks and crevices!
Use a silicone basting brush and cover all of the inside, including the tower. If you also feel the need to flour your pan, try using some cocoa instead. It'll have the same effect, but it'll keep your chocolate bundt cake from being powdery white on the outside.
