Easy triple chocolate Bundt cake made with boxed cake and pudding mixes, chocolate chips and sour cream. Fudgy, moist and rich dark chocolate cake for birthdays, potlucks and Valentine’s Day.
Triple Chocolate Cake is the easiest cake I’ve ever made, and it’s loaded with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. I got the recipe years ago from a good friend who often made it for birthday celebrations.
This is one of those rare times that I take shortcuts or make my life a little easier, especially because I don’t consider myself a stellar baker. This is cheater homemade for me.
This is an easy to make fudgy Bundt cake that uses boxed mixes, both cake and pudding. And chocolate chips, hence the three chocolates. It also has sour cream and that makes for one moist cake.
I like to dust the finished cake with powdered sugar and serve it warm with homemade real whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You could go for a quadruple chocolate cake and drizzle ganache all over. I’ve had it that way once at a potluck, it’s insane!
So if you’re looking for a special dessert for Valentine’s Day or a birthday party, or even to bring to a potluck, this is your cake! Kelly 🍴🐦
