Freckle Cake

Recipe by  

"This amazing cake joined the Walker family traditions when my brother met my sister-in-law. She's a redhead with lots of freckles, and this cake, thanks to the chocolate shavings and chips, has lots of freckles too. So, we changed the name. Chocolate Chip Cake (boring!) is now Freckle Cake. Great topped with vanilla ice cream!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease a 10-inch fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt®).
  2. Beat yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water in a bowl with an electric mixer to make a smooth batter, about 2 minutes. Stir grated chocolate and chocolate chips into batter and pour into prepared tube pan.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan before turning out onto a cake plate.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I found the easiest way to grate the chocolate bar is by chopping it with a large knife. It will just shave right off.
  • Note from my sister-in-law: This has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. However, Marc's introduction to this yummy dessert has become a funny story that I must share. Shortly after Marc and I started dating, my mom packaged up several slices of this yummy cake for me to take back to my dorm room at the University of Arkansas. She sent enough for me to share with Marc (this would be his first time to try my mom's cake). As soon as I got back to school that Sunday afternoon, my mom called to ask if we'd eaten any of the cake yet. She was in a panic because she had just realized that one of her blender blades was broken and missing! (She'd used the blender to chop the German chocolate bar!). So we carefully ate our cake, and sure enough, Marc's piece contained the missing blender blade! Who knew at that point that Marc would be her future son-in-law, but we now joke that she was trying to scare him off early!

This is a beautiful, moist,and easy cake. I found a bag of Nestle's Mini Morsels. They are smaller than mini chips and stay put and don't sink to the bottom. Found them at Walmart I cut the morsels to 6 oz. and cake was loaded. I can't imagine using the whole 12 oz. Made 2 of these cakes in a 5 day period. One for a gift. Be sure and spray well the bundt pan and cool completely. Thanks for recipe and ismy new go to cake.

A nice dense, moist cake. I too used the mini Morsals, and only about half the 12 oz. bag. I finished it with the "easy chocolate bundt cake glaze" recipe. Very Good.

My mother used to make this for my birthday. I have yet to find the recipe in her books. I am so happy to have found this recipe. It was loved by all that ate some and is very easy to make. My mother topped it with some of the shavings mixed with some powdered sugar.
