chocolate fudge bundt cake

  • 1 box (15.25 oz) chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1 box (5.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate milk
  • 1 bag miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

milk chocolate ganache

  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup bundt pan by spraying generously with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine the cake mix (dry mix, do not prepare), pudding mix (dry, do not prepare), sour cream, oil, eggs and chocolate milk. Stir together until well combined. Add in chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  3. Pour batter into the prepare bundt pan. Smooth out the top.
  4. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. Cool cake in the pan for 1-2 hours before inverting onto a plate.

TO MAKE CHOCOLATE GANACHE: In a microwave-safe bowl combine the heavy whipping cream and milk chocolate chips. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. Stir until completely combined. Add in the powdered sugar and stir to combine. Pour over the cake.
** As the whipping cream heats it will boil up. Use a larger bowl than you need to allow for that. I use a 4 cup glass measuring cup and it never boils over in the microwave.


  • You can use any chocolate boxed cake mix you want. I just prefer the chocolate fudge one.
  • You can use water or milk in place of the chocolate milk if wanted.
  • I prefer to use the baking spray. It is cooking spray + flour. It helps the cake not stick to the pan.
