From time to time I am reminded by family and friends of recipes I have created in previous years. We recently bumped into one of my gal pals that reminded me how much her family loves my Triple Chocolate Pound Cake and is a staple for any family function. My husband’s mouth dropped and shared he has never had this recipe and I could tell, he was a bit hurt. My friend could not believe this declaration, and I quickly promised I would bake this cake for Greg. The reasoning for placing this particular recipe in the archives was I cut sugar out of my diet. However, I certainly should not deny a guilty pleasure from time to time…especially my hubby! The simplicity of this recipe is fabulous, with minimal ingredients and preparation. I am going to add this recipe on my list of things to develop as I would love to update without using packaged cake mix and pudding. Until then…enjoy!
Triple Chocolate Poundcake
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 (15.25-ounce) Devil’s Food chocolate cake mix
1 (5.9-ounce) box instant chocolate pudding mix
1.5 cup water
½ cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
¼ cup whipping cream
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 10-inch Bundt pan with butter and lightly dust with flour. Set aside.
In the bowl of a standing mixer, using the paddle attachment, combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs. Mix on low for 30 seconds until combined, increase speed to medium and beat until smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in 2 cups chocolate chips and pour the batter into prepared pan.
Bake 50-55 minutes or until cake is set and springs lightly when touched. Cool 10 minutes; invert pan onto a wired cooling rack. Cool completely before icing.
Combine remaining chocolate chips and whipping cream. Microwave 30 seconds, stir, repeat at 15 second intervals until melted. Drizzle over top of cake and serve.
