Darn Good Chocolate Cake Drizzled in White Chocolate

This week I’m proud to present one of my favorite cake recipes yet! I got the recipe for Darn Good Chocolate Cake out of the Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn. This bundt cake is fabulous! The recipe doesn’t call for icing or any toppings, and let me tell you, it certainly doesn’t need any toppings.


But when I made it, I decided to give it a little something extra. I melted just a couple squares of white chocolate and drizzled it over the top. It added a light sweetness to this rich, decadent chocolate cake, and if I do say so myself, it made it a lot more attractive too! This cake would also be delicious with a milk chocolate icing if you prefer that.


And don’t forget to break out the ice cream or a jug of milk when you get ready to serve. You’ll need it!

(NOTE: Sweet Thursday round-up next week! Email your Valentine Dessert to me by next Wednesday if you’d like to be featured here. Also, I will be putting up a linky next week for anyone who wants to link up their Valentine treats!)

Here are just a couple of pictures of the cake without the white chocolate. Doesn’t that look delicious?

Recipe for Darn Good Chocolate Cake:

Ingredients:1 Devil’s Food or dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 package (3.9 oz) chocolate instant pudding mix
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup war water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I left these out)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist a bundt pan with cooking spray. Also, dust with flour if you like. (I skipped this.) Shake out the excess flour and set pan aside.

Place the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, war water, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Bleand with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 to 3 minutes more, scraping the sides down again if needed. The batter should look thick and well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, making sure they are well distributed throught the batter. Pour the batter in prepared pan. Place in oven.

Bake the cake until it springs back when lightly pressed and just starts to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 45-50 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for 20 minutes. rung a long sharp knife around the edge of the cake and invert it onto the rack to cool completely, 20 minutes more. Or invert it onto a servig platter to slice and serve while warm.

*White Chocolate Instructions – I used a couple of squares of white chocolate. Place these in a bowl and begin heating in the microwave for up to 90 seconds, stopping to stir at 15 second intervals to prevent scorching.*
