For the chocolate cake:

  • 1 box dark chocolate cake mix
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding mix (5.9 oz)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

For the chocolate glaze: (optional)

  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


For the chocolate cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F). Grease and flour a 12 cup bundt cake pan.
  • In a large bowl, stir together cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, vegetable oil, eggs and water until well combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips, then transfer batter to prepared pan.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes until cake top is springy to touch, and toothpick comes out clean (or mostly clean, the chocolate chips might show melted chocolate on the toothpick)
  • Cool in pan for at least one hour, then invert onto serving plate and top with the chocolate glaze or sprinkle some icing sugar on top.

For the chocolate glaze:

  • In a double boiler (a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water), melt together the chocolate, butter, and corn syrup, stirring until completely combined. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Spread the warm glaze on top of the cooled cake, and if you want to top with chocolate chips or sprinkles do it before the glaze sets.
