Favorite Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake is a fan favorite in our home and anything that is double or triple chocolate is just “icing on the cake”.

During the holidays life is a bit chaotic. For a fast, easy and over the top delicious chocolate cake, I always turn to the Triple-Chocolate Bundt Cake from Southern Living Our Best Easy Weeknight Favorites cookbook. It is THE BEST! (Many others over the years completely agree!)

This cake is a breeze because the base is a devil’s food cake mix with a box of chocolate pudding added to it. The result is a – do I dare use the “m” word – moist, rich chocolate cake sure to please every chocolate lover at your party or family dinner.
