Introduction: Triple Chocolate Cake

This is one of my childhood favorites. Foodies, don't scoff at the fact that I used cake mix. This is still a delicious cake and an added bonus is that It's incredibly easy to make.

Step 1: Ingredients

8oz sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
1/2 cup water
4 eggs
Duncan Hines Devil's food mix
Instant pudding (small package)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tbs cocoa powder
strawberries for garnish

Step 2: Mix Everything Together

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the oil, water, sour cream, and eggs in a large bowl using a hand mix. Next, add the cake mix then the instant pudding. Once the batter is smooth, add the chocolate chips. 

Step 3: Prepare the Pan

Coat a bundt pan with grease (I've found that butter works best, but vegetable oil or spray also work). Cover the grease with a layer of cocoa powder. You can use flour in place of the cocoa powder, but I like cocoa powder because it doesn't show on the cake when it is removed from the pan.

Step 4: Bake

Pour the batter evenly in the bundt pan. Use a spatula to even out the batter on top. Bake for about 35 min. Test with a toothpick to see if the cake is cooked through. The toothpick should be clean when it comes out of the cake when the cake is ready. 

Wait 10 minutes before removing the cake from the pan. If the cake sticks at all, run a knife around the edges to loosen it.


Step 5: Decorate

Sprinkle the top of the cake with powdered sugar and garnish with strawberries. Enjoy!

My aunt is a sucker for this cake. Every year I have to make it for her. It's a winner!

Love it and the kids and grandkids also love it,sure don't stay around long

Looks so great can't wait to try!

Oh my Hat!!! So I made this cake for my Birthday and tweaked it a little, my mix was too dry so I added some buttermilk in...about 100ml or so and I didn't have chocolate chips but instead chopped a slab of dark baking chocolate up roughly and then I baked it in two sandwhich cake tins. I covered it with dark chocolate ganache and chocolate fudge icing....It was SOOOO sweet with the icing, but SOooooo chocolateey....people almost died it was so nice! Thank you for sharing an amazing recipe!

Looks great! What sized Duncan Hines cake mix did you use? I've read that some of their packages have been down-sized by a couple of ounces. Also, can you use NON-instant pudding? Thanks.

I just used the standard size. On the back it should say that you can use it for bundt pans. I did not realize they down-sized the packages, but I made this cake just last week and it worked just fine. Nope, it should be instant pudding!

Thanks for answering.
