Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

I made this a few months ago for my husband's birthday! Truth be told I make it for his birthday, anniversary, Valentine's Day, etc! It is his favorite and usually the one he asks for. The only cake that even comes close in his book is the chocolate cream cake. They are both super chocolatey so you can see how the choice would be difficult :-)

Anyway, I found this recipe back for our first Valentine's day together (back before we were married and I was still trying to win him over with cooking). It always turns out super moist and delicious! And as far as cake goes it is pretty quick since you just make a chocolate glaze and pour it over the top instead of frosting it.

I like to eat it warm and melty so I heat my piece for a few seconds, but Alex says it is better cold. You'll have to try it and decide for yourselves!

Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

1 package dark chocolate cake mix (devil's food works too)
1 small package instant milk chocolate pudding mix
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
cocoa powder for dusting

1/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
(In the picture I also melted some white chocolate and drizzled it on the cake as well)

Dust regular sized bundt pan with cocoa. (I usually use shortening to have the cocoa stick) Combine cake ingredients (except chocolate chips) and mix until smooth. Add chocolate chips. Pour mixture into prepared bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 50-60 min. or until toothpick can be inserted and removed clean.

For Glaze: Combine cream and bittersweet chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat. Allow chocolate to melt completely. Cool mixture for 4-5 minutes to thicken . Drizzle over cake. Drizzle with white chocolate too, if desired! Enjoy!
