NEVER-ENDING CHOCOLATE BUNDT CAKE (Adapted from The Cake Mix Doctor)
1 (18.25 oz) Chocolate cake mix * (I used Dr. Oetker’s Organic Chocolate Cake Mix)
1 (3.9 oz.) pkg. dark fudge instant pudding mix (I used Trader Joe’s Brand)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (I use Powdered)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate syrup (I used Trader Joe’s Brand)
1-2 Tablespoons instant coffee crystals
1-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips** (I used Ghirerdelli Brand)
Preheat oven to 325°F. In large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, milk, oil, syrup, coffee crystals, and eggs. Beat on low-speed to blend, then beat on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Gently stir in chocolate chips and pour batter into greased and floured 12-cup capacity Bundt cake pan.
Bake for 55 minute to 1 hour (mine was about 58 minutes) or until cake tester comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then turn out onto cooling rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for garnish or drizzle with Chocolate Glaze. (I used Chocolate Glaze)
To make it look extra special, drizzle white over the dark chocolate glaze. It adds just a little extra something to the appearance of the cake.
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirerdelli Brand)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
Combine chocolate and milk in small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until blended and mixture comes to a boil. Lower heat and cook, stirring constantly until thickened.
WHITE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLING GLAZE
Place 1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips (I used Ghirerdelli Brand) and 1/2 teaspoon shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil) in small heavy seal-top plastic bag. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 45 seconds. Squeeze gently. If necessary, microwave an additional 10 to 15 seconds; squeeze until chips are melted. Make small diagonal cut in one bottom corner of bag; squeeze mixture onto cake as directed.
NOTE: The original recipe used “Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Cake Mix *, and Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Chips.**”
