  • Cook's Note:
  • An optional idea is to let cake cool; slice strawberries and put on the top of the cake, then pour magic shell over the cake, then store in the fridge until it hardens.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Instead of chocolate chunks, I like to use a whole package of mini chocolate chips. Halfway through baking, I take a piece of foil and cover the cake so that the top does not burn. My family loves this bundt cake--I like to serve it with either a dollop of Cool Whip or a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Nothing special. Given all of the calories, it's especially disappointing and bad. Guess I'm used to fresh, real ingredients and expected too much from a cake mix and boxed pudding. I wouldn't bother with this again.

I had a chocolate cake mix I was needing to use when I came across this recipe. DH is the chocolate cake eater in our house and he thought it was just ok. A lot of good ingredients in this, but it just didn't wow.

I spent over an hour in three different stores looking for an 18.5 ounce cake mix. I ended up using a bundt in a box mix.

Delicious. This recipe calls for an 18.25 oz cake mix. Can't find that size. I bought the 15 oz and didn't adjust anything else. I figured I would make adjustments next time if needed. It was still very good. At first I thought the batter might be too thin considering the difference in the cake mix size. I would definitely make this again with no changes except for only being able to find 15 oz mix

This is an excellent cake recipe! My dad is diabetic, so I changed it to accommodate his sweet tooth. I bought a Pillsbury sugar free Devil's Food cake mix, used 1/2 a bag of Hershey's sugar free chocolate chips, small box of Jello fat free/sugar free pudding mix, light sour cream, and then all the other ingredients. After baking, while waiting for the cake to cool, I microwaved 1/2 a container of Pillsbury sugar free Chocolate Fudge frosting for about 30 seconds, stirred until slightly melted, then drizzled it over the warm cake. This cake was a HUGE hit with my entire family...I've made it 3 Sundays in a row!

First time making a bundt cake ever and loved this recipe. Made it for Christmas dinner and it was a hit.I did make a chocolate glaze with confection sugar and cocoa.

Made this cake for a Christmas Eve party last night and it was a HUGE hit! The batter was so thick that I thought I made a mistake, but it came out perfect. I couldn't find a 18.25 oz box of cake mix - darn those manufacturers for shrinking everything! - so I actually bought a second box and added additional mix so that I got to the correct amount. The cake didn't look like anything special but it was so moist and chocolately, people were amazed. I dusted it with confectioners sugar at the end just to make it look a little prettier. Will definitely be making this again!!
