Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake

"I received this delicious recipe from my husband's aunt several years ago after devouring this cake at a family dinner (I even had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning!). It is super-easy to make and is one of the best chocolate cakes I've ever had. This cake tastes even better the next day and freezes extremely well. I usually use a little of the chocolate cakemix instead of white flour to flour the pan so that you don't see any white specks on the cake. It's so rich that I usually don't use frosting. I usually use Duncan Hines fudge cakemix and Jello pudding mix. Makes a great presentation at potlucks and dinner parties. The best thing is that this cake doesn't taste at all like it came from a mix. Enjoy!"

    Most excellent cake! I am not much of a baker (I prefer to cook), so I was nervous that I would burn it, but 45 minutes was perfect! No need to frost, I just topped it with a mixture of unsweetened coco powder and powdered sugar. This mixture also worked for "flouring" the pan! Excellent! Thanks for the recipe!

    Scrumptious! This is basically the recipe on the box of Duncan Hine's devils food cake mix. I prefer cake without hard chocolate chips, so I left them out. I also used the box recipe's ratio of oil and water, because it's less fat: 1 1/4 cup water and 1/2 cup oil. I baked at 350 for 50min. Nice and moist; and I loved the tip about dusting the cake pan with cake mix instead of flour! Wonderful with recipe#258589. (seen in photo)

    Yum! This is easy to make and doesn't even need frosting! It will not all fit in a small bundt pan though, so I now put some mix in the pan and make cupcakes with the rest. Tastes best with mini chocolate chips.
