Chocolate Bundt Cake

There are many ways to achieve a moist, intensely chocolate Bundt cake. This recipe uses a cake mix as the basis, so it can be prepared quickly and easily.

Chocolate Bundt Cake


  • 1 box Devil’s Food cake mix (preferably the kind with the pudding in the mix)
  • 1 4-serving box of instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate flavored yogurt (plain is fine as a substitute)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Position rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and lightly dust the Bundt pan with flour.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ingredients in the following order: cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, yogurt, oil, water and vanilla.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat ingredients together for two minutes at medium speed.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 70 minutes or until it springs back after being touched lightly in the center.

For an even more chocolate-y experience, drizzle with a chocolate glaze. There are plenty of recipes for this kind of glaze online. This one works fairly well.

Bitter Sweet Chocolate Glaze


  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


The Bundt cake should already be cooled and sitting on the serving platter before glazing.

  1. In a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, combine chocolate chips, butter, cream, and light corn syrup. Stir until the chips are melted and the mixture is satiny smooth.
  2. Add vanilla.
  3. Remove from heat and immediately drizzle the glaze over the top of the Bundt cake, allowing the glaze to drip down the sides.
