Easy Bundt Cake

Kierste Wade | Old Salt Farm
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes



  • 1 chocolate cake mix (I like Duncan Hines)
  • 1 5.9 ounce box instant chocolate pudding
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Chocolate Frosting

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray really well, then coat the pan with sugar. 
  • With a hand mixer, combine the cake mix, pudding, flour, eggs, water, and oil in a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips (optional).  
  • Spoon into the bundt pan and bake for 45-55 minutes.  My oven bakes really slow, so mine always takes longer, but start checking around 45 minutes, just to make sure. Cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10-15 minutes, then turn out onto a cake plate.  While it's cooling, make the frosting! 
  • To make the frosting: Measure the powdered sugar into a large mixing bowl. In a large glass measuring cup, or glass bowl (microwave safe), melt the butter, cocoa, and 2 tablespoons of the milk until it comes to a boil. Stir well, then add to the powdered sugar. Add the vanilla and the rest of the milk, beating with a wooden spoon until the consistency is smooth. Add a little more milk if necessary. 
  • I like my frosting to be a little thicker on the cake, so once I have the frosting consistency they way I like it, I microwave it for about 10 seconds. Then I can easily spoon the frosting over the cake, and it will go right back to the consistency I started with.  If you like it a little thinner, then add a little more milk--then you won't have to microwave it.  


You can combine other flavors or cake mix and pudding to create other cake flavors!  My favorite is lemon cake mix + lemon pudding.
