Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Ganache Glaze

Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake 1

This is definitely a cheater recipe, starting with both a chocolate cake mix and chocolate pudding mix. But it is easy, delicious and super-moist. Perfect. And baked in a bundt pan it makes a beautiful dessert suitable for serving company.

This is especially delicious served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each slice.


Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake 1

1 box chocolate cake mix (I used a dark chocolate fudge flavor)
1 small box (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
½ cup warm water
1 cup finely chopped bittersweet chocolate

Preheat oven to 350°F . Grease and flour a bundt pan (or spray with baking non-stick cooking spray: the kind with flour in it).

In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, eggs and water. Stir in the chopped chocolate and pour batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake completely in the bundt pan for about 90 minutes.

Invert onto a serving plate and drizzle with glaze. If desired, serve each slice topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Chocolate ganache glaze:

4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped (a little more than ½ cup)
½ cup heavy cream
2 Tbs corn syrup
1 Tbs granulated sugar

Place the chopped chocolate into a small bowl and set aside. In a Pyrex measuring cup or microwavable bowl, combine the heavy cream, corn syrup and sugar. Heat for 1 minute; stir. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate. Let sit for one minutes, then stir until smooth with a whisk.

Use a spoon to generously drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake, allowing it to drip down the sides.

  2. Just finished making your wonderful cake idea. Haven’t tasted it yet – it’s for tomorrow … Would love to show you some pictures. Let me know and I’ll send them. Thanks for the recipe!!!

    So do I mix according to package directions then add the eggs, water, and oil you listed or do I only use what you listed?


    • Don’t prepare the cake mix as directed on the box. Only use the ingredients listed in the recipe, not the ones listed on the box to make a regular cake. The cake mix should be added dry. Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy baking!





    • Sorry for the late reply. The chocolate chunks do not completely melt into the cake, but if you chop them into fairly small pieces, they are not noticeable chunks. I use the larger Ghiradelli 60% chocolate chips, and I think these are too large to leave whole, so I coarsely chop them.
