Why You’ll Love This Recipe

Of all the desserts my Momma made when I was growing up, Double Chocolate Chip Cake is the one I remember most.

It’s full of semi-sweet chocolate morsels, but if that’s not enough, there’s grated dark chocolate in the mix. Ah, two types of chocolate…the way to a girl’s heart.

What’s Special About This Cake?

Remember when using a cake mix was an everyday thing? Momma taught me how to cook, and her recipes always involved using a mix.

Sometime in the past ten years, baking from scratch made a comeback. And, while I’m all about scratch baking, I’m not above using a cake mix from time to time.

Double Chocolate Chip Cake was definitely made for a cake mix. It’s quick, easy, and a chocolate lover’s dream. What’s not to love?

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • yellow cake mix
  • water
  • oil
  • eggs
  • vanilla instant pudding
  • chocolate chips
  • grated chocolate
  • powdered sugar

Easy Instructions

Grease and flour a regular size (10 inch) bundt pan. Place the yellow cake mix, water, and oil in a mixing bowl. Beat until moistened. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Add vanilla pudding and mix well.

Grate the chocolate into the batter, then add chocolate chips and stir. Pour batter into a bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle.

Cool cake for 30 minutes, then invert over a pie plate. Tap the bundt pan lightly and the cake should pop right out. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, or drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired.

Can I Make Substitutions?

I’m all about making substitutions, and this cake is the perfect place to experiment. I’ve made it with peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, and even strawberry chips!

All of those variations are fun, but I like the chocolate chip version the best. If you decide to branch out and try a new flavor, don’t substitute the vanilla instant pudding. I tried that trick with butterscotch pudding and it was too much of a good thing (if you know what I mean).
