Chocolate or Lemon Bundt decide!

1 package deep chocolate cake mix
1 4 oz. package instant chocolate pudding
½ pint sour cream
½ c. oil
½ c. warm water
4 eggs
1 12 oz. package chocolate chips
Powdered sugar to sprinkle

Mix all ingredients, except powdered sugar, until well blended. Pour into well greased Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out on serving plate. When thoroughly cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Lemon Bundt Cake

One day I was thinking about this recipe and I wondered how it would be if it were lemon. It was one of my better ideas! Just use the same recipe above except use a lemon cake mix and lemon pudding. Omit the chocolate chips.

Lemon Glaze

Mix 1 cube softened butter with 3 c. powdered sugar and 1 t. vanilla. Add enough fresh lemon juice to make it the desired consistency. I like my glaze kinda thick.

From whence it came: I got this winner of a recipe out of a cookbook put together by teachers. It is a compilation of their favorite recipes. And do you want to hear something strange? It's the only recipe I've ever made out of the cookbook. I don't know why. Nothing against teachers, I'm sure they are great cooks. I've just never tried any other recipe. This one recipe makes the entire book worth having! It's good!

Why it's blogable: This recipe is very easy to make, and it turns out great every single time. The cake is dense and moist, which is a great combination if you're a cake, not so great if you're a person. Also, it makes 24 slices, which is quite a few, so it's great to take to a potluck or party. People will ask you for the recipe, and you should share. Sharing is good!

Chocolate or Lemon?: Get ready to hear a clap of thunder from the heavens above because I'm about to say something that goes against every fiber of my being. I like the lemon better. There, I said it. I am the world's biggest lover of all things chocolate. I have yet to meet a chocolate anything that I didn't! But for some reason, I like the lemon cake better. Don't misunderstand, the chocolate is really good. Really! But there's just something about the lemon that calls out my name. And I answer! I think it's the icing that makes it so good. It's a bit tart, which is such a great combo on top of the sweet cake. I just really love this lemon cake. And it's pretty! Did I tell you it's pretty?
It is!

Hope you enjoy stirring it up!


  1. I think your comments are even better than the great recipes! I love to read them.

  2. This is one of our favorite cake recipes too! It super yummy with mint chocolate chips instead of regular.... And we always put chocolate gnoche on the top instead of powdered sugar. Extra chocolately is always better! Thanks Pam!
