Every once in a while, a recipe comes along that you picture yourself making at least five times a year until you die. This cake and I will have a long, long relationship, I just know it. This will be the cake my kids and grandkids beg for on special occasions. This will be the cake little old church ladies will ask me to make for the potluck. "Lindsay's gonna bring one of her chocolate cakes, naturally; Gladys, what will you bring?"
My friend (and fellow adviser) Allison brought this cake to our December board dinner. I didn't even eat the dessert I brought to share with everyone, I was so consumed with this cake. So using my KitchenAid + new SUPER HANDY glass mixing bowl with a spout and new bundt cake pan, I made this for Evan who joined me for dinner and the Golden Globes on Sunday evening. Since I am a lady first and chef second, I won't say who ate what but I will point out he took some with him to nibble on later. Either way, this is what two people did to this cake:
YEAH. It's that good.

What's that you say? Your new year's resolution was to eat a cake all by yourself? Okay - here you go! This will fix you right up.

1 box of Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Fudge Cake Mix
16 oz. Sour Cream
12 oz. Chocolate Chips
4 Eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 pkg. Instant Chocolate Pudding

Dump everything into a bowl. Mix and pour into a bunt cake pan. Bake at 350 until done (approximately 60 to 90 minutes).

And they lived happily ever after!


  1. This is my go to recipe as well...it always gets rave reviews and is SO easy.

  2. I make this one too and might have eaten a half by myself in a weak moment. I think it is bc it is SO moist and chocolately (is that a word?) without being too rich. so no judgement here!

  3. Wow. After seeing this on your blog this afternoon, I decided to make it for Kristen for dinner desert. I had to substitute Betty Crocker gluten free cake mix for the Duncan Hines cake mix, but it turned out AWESOME. It was the best gluten-free cake that I've ever had. Most gluten-free cakes are dense and dry. This one is spongy and moist. Thanks for posting this!

  4. Dang it! Why did you have to post this recipe! I already can't stop eating that chicken tortilla soup. :)


Oh goody!
