Let me tell you that this chocolate chip cake has 14 ounces of chocolate!! It is so moist and full of chocolate and so very easy to make. I have been making this cake for over 15 years and from the very first time I made it my children immediately said it was their favorite. They are now grown and it is still their favorite! I get request to make this cake from everyone I know because it is that good.
I modified the original recipe many years ago so that I could use more chocolate and to make it really moist. In 2004 I won first place with the cake in a local baking contest.
Above are my ingredients. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees or 325 for confection oven.
Start by grating your semi-sweet chocolate squares, the picture above shows the remaining grating chocolate after mixing the batter. This grated chocolate will be used on top of the cake after baking.
Mix cake mix, pudding, oil and milk. Add eggs one at a time, beat throughly but be sure not to over beat. Stir in chocolate chips and all but 2/3 cups of grated chocolate.
Above is the batter after adding the grated semi-sweet chocolate. Once the cake batter is ready, pour into your prepared pan. You can bake this cake in either a bundt pan or tube pan. This time I used a tube pan but either will work fine. Be sure to prepare your pan with a good spray of Bakers Joy. If you miss this step you will not be able to remove the cake from the pan. Bake for about 50 – 55 minutes or until done depending on your oven.
After the cake has cooled approximately 10-12 minutes, I remove from the pan and then top with the remaining grated semi-sweet chocolate. Once the cake has completely cooled I dust with 10x sugar.
I almost didn’t get a picture of the cake after it was cut, it gets eaten so fast because it is sooo good!!
