  • 1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 5.9oz box Instant Chocolate Pudding mix
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Oil
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 cups Mini Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 1/3 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Using a stand mixer or handheld mixer, beat together cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, oil, eggs and milk. Batter will be thick.
  • Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Pour into a well greased bundt pan. (Note: If you use coconut oil in the cake, it won't stick. Coconut oil is wonderful like that!) Using a greased rubber scraper, smooth the batter around a bit until it's fairly even.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes or until the top is springy. Cool the cake for about 15 minutes, then over turn your bundt pan onto a large plate and let cool completely.

Chocolate Glaze

  • To make chocolate glaze, combine chocolate chips, butter and cream in a glass or ceramic bowl.
  • Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. Open microwave and place a plate on top of the bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Remove bowl from microwave and whisk gently until mixture comes together and creates a smooth chocolate glaze.
  • Let sit 5-10 minutes to thicken. Pour glaze on top of cake, letting it drizzle down the sides. Top with grated chocolate curls, if desired. Let cool to set.
