This is a fantastic cake! Very, very chocolately, the perfect recipe for the chocoholic. Try not to overbake as it might affect the moisture. However, for the baker with a perfection palate, I strongly suggest making your own "devils food mix". Even with the tweaks of pudding mix and chocolate chips (and they should be minis for this recipe), the flavor of boxed mix still comes out. For my own enjoyment the recipe as is is fine. I was searching for a recipe to make mini bundts for gifts at work and wanted something with a "wow" factor. I need to make the mix from scratch and then it will get the "wow" factor.
I made this for a co-workers birthday, everyone loved it, (who doesn't love chocolate??) and got a few requests for the recipe. Will make again, thanks!
So moist and delicious! This was a hit with kids and guests alike and so easy to make. This would be great for potlucks, too. Update: I have made this several times and always get compliments on it. I have made it and decorated for a friend's "Over the Hill" birthday and did not have problems with crumbs. I have also made cupcakes and decorated them. This is a fantastic recipe. I suggest using miniature chocolate chips; it spreads the chocolate out more.
This REALLY REALLY lives up to it's claims. It's death by chocolate for sure. But.. it's almost too moist to be in my cake taker. So.. next time I make this (and there WILL BE many next times) I'm going to cut back the chocolate chips to 1 cup as one baker suggested. I also used Mexican vanilla as that's all I own. I used Ghirardelli coco powder in my glaze too....lol What the heck... it was awesome.
This is so good but also so very sweet. We all loved it. next time I might try to vary it up a bit by using a different glazing..maybe strawberry or cherry and add some of the fruit in the middle of it. Or use peanut butter chips and put a peanut butter glazing on it.
I haven't even put the icing on yet, but this cake is amazing!!!! I used a mini-bundt cake pan, makes 6 small, individual cakes. I was removing them from the pan, when one got stuck. A piece was left in the pan just for me to sample. :)
Super easy recipe & I love that the recipe doesn't call for any oil. Thank you for sharing!!!
Amazing, loved this cake. My family and I finished it off very quickly. I will be making this again. Thanks!
Definitely the cake for when a chocolate craving hits! Quick to make. I kind of wanted to sit in the middle of it and eat my way out. Everyone enjoyed it. Really good with a glass of cold milk!
I made this cake for my dad's birthday, and he really seemed to enjoy it. (I didn't eat any because I follow a low-carb diet, but it certainly looked good.) It was easy to make, too. I only made a few changes; I didn't have cake mix on hand, so I made used 1/3 recipe of the homemade cake mix listed on the About.com Busy Cooks site. I substituted brown sugar for the granulated sugar called for in that recipe since I had no granulated sugar on hand. To that, I added about 1/6 to 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup vegetable oil along with the rest of the ingredients listed in this recipe. I used 1/2 semi-sweet and 1/2 milk chocolate chips, as that was what I had on hand. I also added a bit of vanilla to the glaze as vanilla seems to be a standard addition to chocolate recipes. I would definitely make this for someone again!
Very good. I should've let it cool a bit more, it didn't come out of the pan cleanly. But very moist and tasty. CHOCOLATE-Y!!!! Also got rave reviews from my friends at a luncheon. Yummy cake (and I'm not a huge cake fan!)
