I’ve been excited to make this bundt cake for a very long time. It’s my all-time favorite cake recipe. It’s SO chocolatey, moist, gooey goodness. And I wanted to decorate it for Easter! So what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than to make an Easter cake? Haha! Yes, sometimes I am THAT blogger…the one putting up Christmas decorations in October so I can post pictures for all of you. But seriously, I bet you wish you ate dinner at my house tonight.
Isn’t it cute? I love how this turned out. And as a wonderful treat, it tasted even BETTER than it looks (which doesn’t always happen for me!) If you are a chocolate lover, you have got to try this recipe. And then you will never go back to another recipe.
- 1 Devil's Food Cake Mix (I like Duncan Hines)
- 1 Package Dry Instant Chocolate Pudding package
- 1 Cup sour cream
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cup melted butter
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the ingredients minus chocolate chips until thoroughly mixed. Then stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into a well greased bundt cake pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. Once it's out of the oven, cover with tin foil and put in the freezer until you're ready to decorate (and it's cooled.)
It’s really quite easy!
For the topping, I melted white chocolate chips mixed with a little olive oil to make it more pourable. HOW TO MELT CHOCOLATE THE FAST WAY: Put about 1-2 cups chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Microwave in 30 second intervals until it’s melted. Add in about 1-2 Tablespoons of oil to improve consistency.
First I put a ball of tin foil in the middle hole so I wouldn’t have to fill it so much. Then I drizzled the chocolate over the cake and coaxed it to drip in the crevices. I toasted about 1 1/2 cup of coconut on 350 for about 7 minutes. Just put it in a cookie sheet. It will seem burned on the edges but mix it up to get a nice ratio of toasted flakes versus white. Then put the coconut on the cake and make a little ‘nest’ of it in the middle. Add a few robin eggs candy and some Peeps on skewers and you’ve got yourself a delicious and beautiful Easter cake!
Do you make a fun Easter dinner and dessert for your family? What are you planning on making this year?
