Melt In Your Mouth Double Chocolate Pound Cake

Good Saturday morning girls! I told you girls in the blog yesterday that I was going to be baking one of my kids favorite desserts, so I am sharing it today. I started baking this Chocolate Pound Cake about 16 years ago and it is soooo delish! Trust me girls, its going to melt in your mouth!

I frosted this cake and sprinkled extra chocolate chips on top…because I had extra chocolate chips I needed to use up, and it made it pretty lol! If you are a chocolate lover, like me, you will want to hold on to this recipe. I would make this every few months when the kids were little. Then it kind of drifted to special occasions and before long, it had made it’s way to the back of my recipe book.

I was given a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer for Mother’s Day last year and I just started using it at Christmas. I lost my love for cooking and baking, but it seems to be coming back in full force and I have been using this baby constantly! I did find the exact one I have with the attachments at QVC and it’s available with 6 Easy Payments of $46.67 (I love some easy pay LOL). See it HERE and they have a huge variety of colors to choose from. The girls (Raegan and Brooklyn) and I have had the most fun using this to bake and even prep dinner with, so I wanted to share.

If you don’t have a KitchenAid, no worries, a hand mixer works great!

Double Chocolate Pound Cake

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
  • 1 Butter Recipe Cake Mix
  • 1 small box of instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 small box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 oz. bag of chocolate chips

Instructions:

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan.

Beat eggs, water, and vanilla by hand with a wink. Stir in cake mix and pudding mixes. Slowly add butter and oil with a hand mixer or electric mixer. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips (save a few to garnish the top if desired). Spoon into a Bundt Cake Pan or Tube Pan (it will be thick)

Bake 50-60 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes before frosting or adding a ganache glaze. if you chose to add frosting, it will melt if you don’t wait for the cake to cool and look like mine in the pictures. Go crazy and experimetn with toppings!!

Ganache Glaze

  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Ganache Glaze Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium/low heat, add cream and bring to a low simmer. Reduce heat to low and add the chocolate chips and whisk just until chocolate chips are melted. Continue whisking until mixture is shiny and smooth. Let cool 15-20 minutes
  2. Drizzle ganache over the cake.

I’ve been making this cake for a long time ladies and it is another crowd-pleaser. Hope you enjoy! Don’t forget…you can also use a frosting of your choice if you do not want to make the ganache glaze like I did last night. Enjoy! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by the blog!

    OMG…I will be making this for sure and my hubby will love me “more” for it 😉 And i should have better luck finding these ingredients in my little grocery store then I did the squash and bread crumbs. And…I will stick with the glaze as that is probably just the right amount since the cake will be chocolaty so won’t need a heavy frosting. And here I go again with my recipe question….have you ever used the sugar free pudding or do you always use the regular? (I couldn’t let you off the hook without asking you something about your recipe…LOL) We have a family reunion at noon and that will last til mid to late afternoon. Then we will head back to the fair and kind of walk through some of the exhibits and the animal barns and then we will take in the Jordan Davis concert there tonight. It has already cooled off this morning so I think it will be a comfortable night sitting outside for the concert. Have a great day Beverly and bet you are going to enjoy left-over cake sometime today!!!

      I always use the regular pudding mix, but the sugar free should be fine too. It’s sweet lol!! Sounds like you are having a big day! And lots of fun things to do. Have a great day and trust me, your husband is going to love it!! Lol

    Thanks for the recipe!! This looks very similar to my recipe for the triple chocolate bundt cake with chocolate drizzle. I may have to try this sometime and ask Troy to decide which he likes best. I can’t eat any sweets so I have to rely on my “official taste tester” 😉 I do have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer in black and use it quite often but for quick recipes like the bundt cake I just use my hand mixer. Sandy it sounds like you had a fun day at the fair! I hope you all are having a great weekend!!

    • Beverly

      I bet you have all the cool baking gadgets Kelly!! I’d love to showcase one of your favorite recipes sometime. You always have the best ones!! Lol!! Barry is my taste taster-those guys sure do like that part huh! He still wants to lick the bowl haha!!! Happy Sunday!! I’m putting out my Sunday post soon!!! 🙌🏼❤️

      Kelly there are times I wish I couldn’t eat sweets because then maybe I would feel better and be a couple inches thinner…LOL Yes, we have had a fun time at the fair…our boys participated as soon as they were able with hogs for their project so we are use to the fair and we try and still go to support it as it’s sometimes hard for county fairs to bring in entertainment and carnivals to keep them going. And..you can never go wrong with the church stand fair food. The country music concert last night was a little more rock country then mellow so that ages us since we thought it was too loud…ha! Beverly maybe I will use regular pudding just so I follow YOUR recipe before trying to adjust it. And..I know they say to eat “regular” versus fat free and sugar free now so maybe regular is the way to go. I forgot to tell you that I too have a kitchen aid and never use a hand mixer as it’s just so much easier with my big one. Since it does take up room on the counters, I keep it underneath and figure it’s good “weight” exercise having to lift it onto the counter 🙂 And you are right Beverly…the guys do seem to enjoy being taste testers! That’s funny that Barry likes to lick the bowl. I never did that when I was growing up thus never suggested that to our boys so they also didn’t get into that and neither is terry. Funny how we each have our little pleasures.
