I made this for my chocolate loving son's birthday, but was very disappointed with the results. I ended up having to bake the cake for about 80 minutes. Sorry, but we just found this TOO moist, like the cake wasn't baked enough. I sprayed the pan well, as suggested but even after leaving it to cool for almost three hours, I still had part of the cake stuck to the pan.
I have made this cake only i added chopped pecans and chocolate chips in the mix and on top as a decoration , the cake was wonderful, almost like a brownie cake. I used two 8 inch pans and made it into a layer cake. I will make this again and again, It was very gooood!!!
Fabulous! I used both semisweet and bittersweet morsels, and substituted vanilla pudding for chocolate pudding as that was that I had on hand. I baked it about 10 minutes longer than called for, but I used a stoneware bundt pan, which takes a bit longer to get hot. The cake came out of the pan beautifully, and a little dusting of powdered sugar was all it needed to finish it off. My husband gives it two thumbs up!
Absolutely wonderful!! Needed something to make with what I had on hand....this was just right! Everyone thought it was perfect with the powdered sugar dusting. Took it to a party & everyone asked for the recipe. Making again tonight!
I'm cleaning out the pantry and using what I have to bake/cook something every day. I've used similar recipes in the past, but I think this one is more moist and delicious. I used a white frosting on it - not that it needed any more sweetness - but my DH can't (won't) eat cake without it. The bonus is that I got rid of the can of frosting. It took about 8 extra minutes to bake in a bundt pan. Thanks!
I have been craving chocolate cake for a few weeks now and decided to look for a recipe to make one. WOW! Did I find a great one! I used 1 1/2 cups of the mini semi sweet morsels but that's the only thing I did differently. I had a dark non-stick bundt pan so I did not spray it and it made a bit of a mess coming out. My presentation got a zero but it tasted oh so good! Thanks for the recipe that stopped my craving!!
Excellent cake! I didn't have a 4-oz package of instant pudding (the six-serving size), but I did have a small box of chocolate and a small box of vanilla -- so I used all of the chocolate & 1/2 of the vanilla one -- I figured that would be about the right amount. I also ran out of oil (had about a 1/4 cup), so I made up the difference with a little extra sour cream. The cake baked up nice & high, and came out of the bundt pan easily. The cake was very dense, moist & VERY chocolate-y. In my opinion it doesn't even need the powdered sugar (let alone an icing or frosting). Thanks for posting! -M =)
This cake was good and easy to make. I did put a chocolate glaze(butter, confectioner's sugar, cocoa and hot water) on the top of the cake, then dusted with confectioner's sugar. My BF and guests enjoyed this cake.
Awesome, easy, incredibly moist cake. What more could you ask for. Thanks for the recipe.
I make this cake - but my recipe is called "Cavity Causing Cake"! It is wonderful!!!
